It looks great!

And now a newbie question: what's the advantage of using NDs and then increasing the exposure time over a shorter exposure without the filters? Thanks.

The ND filters and the longer exposure achieved blurred the water.  The ND Grad was likely used to enable the foreground (water, pier) to be brightened, so they wouldn't appear dark relative to the bright sky.

Thank you very much. Explained like this it makes a lot of sense and I can see it in the photo.
