These were posted in another thread, but I forgot to post them here. Live Composite shots from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

Well - probably the last of the fireworks. I worked a bit more on the ground focus and did better except for the "Tesla Coil" fireworks where I moved the tripod. My wife likes that one.

Finally had a chance to play with this during a real thunderstorm... IIRC four bolts of lightning, each adding a layer to the cloud lighting... I felt like a little kid watching it "develop" on the screen. :D

Your note made me chuckle as I remember this sort of boring shot I took trying Live Comp

Quick question: Correct me if I'm wrong but can Live Comp be used in place of ND filters for landscape photos to get that "soft, misty water effect"?

Edit: Yep, all I had to do was check the previous posts. Looks like I have to return the ND filter I just bought.

I wouldn't, the appropriate ND filter to get a slow enough shutter speed should be used during the day with Live composite for some things.
There is a clear difference in the look of water shoot using a slow shutter > 2 sec versus capture via a multi exposed live compsite
This one is multiple minutes long as a live composite but the base exposure time is 0.6sec, I would have preferred 3 to 4 secs but hadn't taken the ND across with me.

For comparison this is a 13 sec exposure on the same beach looking the other way

Will a 10 stop ND filter be inappropriate for those kinds of shots?

bright sunny days to get longer than 1 sec usually requires 10 stop if you want to keep the aperture open.
It's the standard triangle, juggle the parameters you need to and use the required ND filter.
bright sunny areas i'll reach for the ND1000 (10 stop)
rainforest, shaded or cloudy then the ND64 (6 stop) will usually get the job done,
I've been meaning to buy a ND8 (3 stop) to have some extra flexibility.
Just based on the exif for the second image i would have used the ND1000

My first attempt with Live Composite. Godox speedlight into beauty dish to illuminate face and cheap LED wand off ebay. And quite a lot of patience.
