Fast forward

Chicago skyline at sunrise as seen from North beach (with fast forward). I used BW 10stop ND filter to smooth out the lake surface and cause the clouds to streak out the blue sky. I also used 0.9 hard-grad ND filter to expose the sky correctly. After taking the shot, I liked how that guy there stood almost static for over 40 sec! He actually had a dog who was playing and swimming in the lake. The only thing I regret afterwards is that I should have shot this with the sun striking the cityscape with a golden tone. It was hidden behind the cloud and I should have waiting for it to come out.
