Hi,

Haven't managed to get out for much photography recently, but escaped for a few hours yesterday to one of my favourite locations. Been meaning to get a photo of this boardwalk for a while, so nice to finally get the chance. A 0.9 grad was used together with a Lee Big Stopper for an exposure time of around 7 minutes.

There was a queue of people waiting patiently behind me by the time the exposure finished, but thankfully they didn't mind!




Thanks for looking,

Andrew.

It's a classical composition but so well executed, with brilliant colors in the sky, good contrast that I love it.
Bravo, Andy and thanks for sharing

Thanks for the comments.

Francois - Yes, agree that I wouldn't get any points for original composition with this one  Smiley,  but nice to get the shot when the conditions and the light were so nice.

Andy.

I think it's a beautiful, peaceful image but I'm a little puzzled as to why such a very long exposure was necessary. The tide seems to be out.

Hi,

Thanks for the comments. The long exposure was really to get some movements in the clouds. Exposure without the big stopper was initially around 1/3 sec, but I felt the resulting image had a bit too much going on in the sky. So tried the longer exposure and preferred the way it kept the colour in the sky but didn't over power the detail in boardwalk.

Hope that vaguely makes sense!

Andy.

That's what I thought. Long exposures tend to give smooth or vaporous and colorful skies!
