I drove three hours in the dark from Minneapolis to Duluth, MN to be there before sunrise. I watched the sun rise and took some photos without a filter. Then the sun went behind a cloud and I used a 16 stop ND filter and got a 300 second exposure. I like the way this blurred the clouds and made the water smooth. Since the sun was hidden the long exposure did't overexpose the sky. In Photoshop I used a light gradient to give the photo a soft look.
