You're really not gaining anything with the long exposure. I can see it a little in the first because of the water but not for 2 minutes. It's unnecessarily excessive. and caused what ever is going on in the upper left.

The second is even worse because you aren't getting any effect other than the reeds. the picture it's self isn't really all that good, regardless of how long the exposure. Theres no subject and it's not interesting.

number 2 doesnt do much for me but i like number one, it makes me stop and ask what exactly is missing. which is one of the things that i love about long exposure to begin with. definitely needs refinement but id be interested to see what else you get out of it

Bump. No idea why you thought this was a plan.
It's all a blur... and it ain't working for me.

I mostly use daytime long exposure to smooth water flow or to play with some light effects. Like you see the water at the table in #1.
You dont need to make the exposure so long tho.. 30 seconds would be enough.
But in your pictures, it just made them look blurry.
I like #2 but then again, if would of been better without the long exposure.
Keep practicing and post an update of your progress.

I like the silk of the water around the picnic table. If it was my photo, I would of cropped out the limb movement in the top left corner of the frame. It's a bit distracting. What stop ND filter were you using if I may ask?

I also like the first picture a decent bit; really fitting subject for the long exposure, considering the water.

I'd agree that there's not much of a point to the very long exposure, especially with the second photo, but I think that there's definitely value in experimenting with less orthodox ideas like this! ^^

I really like the first one and the second one isn't bad. Like others have already said, the long exposure didn't add anything to the second and a shorter exposure would have probably turned out the same on the first. Black and white is definitely a good choice for this style of photo. I think somewhere with a little more movement going on would be better for what you're going for.
