Swirling Serenity - Pleinmont, Guernsey

My first time out with my new camera, the Nikon D7000 and also a new 10-20mm lens. Recieved it the day before but after charging up the battery and having a little mess around at home I couldn't wait to get out and try it. I decided to head to one of my favourite spots on the island to get there in time for the sunset. Setting myself up on the rocks, a bit worried about my new kit breaking on the first day, I decided to try out an effect I had looked into quite a bit in the past but never got around to it, getting that misty water look. I tried a few combinations of settings, getting used to the controls of the D7000 and came up with this. Was quite proud of this for a first attempt, even though it didn't include the Sun itself, it seemed to work better than the others.
