You really put some thought into making this one special. The very long shutter speed means that you have succeeded perfectly. This one is a gem. - The sort I always wish i had taken.....Peter

Fazzer,

I can't even begin to tell you how much I like this shot - everything about it from the composition, the colours, the focus is just visually stunning!

Just 2 questions: -

1. What's a big stopper?
2. You said it was raining, but the sky is blue. Did you Photoshop the sky in? (Not that I have the slightest issue with that)

Well done,

Taf

Hi Taf glad you like it Smile, the big stopper is a filter developed by Lee filters which reduces exposure by approximately 10 stops (it looks as dark as the welding glass welders use for protecting the eyes.)The blue cast is inherent in the filter but it can be removed in post processing.For this shot i did reduce the blue but left most of it as i thought it added to the shot.It was not raining,just very windy and the sky was as shot,i probably spent about 2 minutes processing the shot which involved warming up the shot a tad and playing with the levels

Thanks for the feedback Fazzer, I've always looked at these type of shots and wondered how people do them - might have to invest in a big stopper myself.

But a 176 secound exposure - that's almost 3 minutes!!!! how on earth did you avoid camera shake if it was as windy as you mentioned? (Was your Tripod buried in the sand or something?)

Sorry for more questions, I'd just love to have a go at doing this Smile

Hey Taf , i was sheltered from the wind by the sea defence steps but i hung my heavy camera bag from the hook i have under the tripod face to anchor it further.If i'm using the big stopper on grass i have some spiked feet about 2" long which screw into the bottom of the tripod legs which really help ..... they're great fun to use,give me a shout if you need any help with it if you get itSmile
