Wanted to try this effect for some time. First frame is a LE (added 10-stop filter) to saturate foreground colors and flatten the waves, second frame has fast shutter speed (no black glass) to congeal the clouds. Wanted to add serious drama to the manual blend, but the clouds took unreal colors so chose to convert all to B&W.
