Daylight Long Exposures

This photo was taken with a 10 stop ND filter on a D850 and 18mm f/3.5 AIS Nikkor. The exposure was 60 seconds at f/11 with the ISO set to 32. This is not a difficult shot to take, it just takes a sturdy tripod, either a screw in 10 stop ND or, as I used, a 100mm square filter holder screwed into the filter threads. A remove timer/shutter release is a necessity. It was a bright morning, so I placed the filter directly on top of my Sekonic L-358 with the dome retracted and took a meter reading. My goal was to get a full minute exposure so I played with the aperture to get that shutter speed.

Very nice photo, Scott !
Your technical explanations are very welcome.
I am wondering wether you took the lightmeter's figures strictly into account or corrected them because of long exposure ?

Living by the sea, I'll try long exposure some day. Like 1 small

Oh, are these 2 dust spots in the sky on the right part ?
