Hi ,this was taken at Hunstanton on saturday morning using a big stopper,hope you're all well
Hi Jeremy, quite sublime this one..veryu calm & relaxing.
Very feng shui, lovely tones from the long exposure.
This is right up my street Jeremy. Superb comp, fab tones and nicely processed. I love it....a lot.
Wow thanks Charlotte it's seeing your images which inspires me to look for this type of shot
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
Superb big stopper work! John
Fantastic creative image, well thought out and put together, great camera work.
Thanks for all the great feedback
Very peaceful image and wonderful result of long exposure.
Good subject for your static subject.
My sort of image Jeremy.
Wow thank you Phillip what a great start to the week , very much appreciated
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)
Hi Taf glad you like it , 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
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 it
