Pier Pressure


Posted on Tue 6th Jun, 2006, 10:11pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 10 Mins, Aperture: f/11,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 18mm,
Captured: 3rd June 2006, 2:16am,

I must confess that I did actually move this branch. Originally it was in the shadow so I moved it where there was a bit more light so I could frame the shot how I wanted.

I can't decide whether the footprints spoil the shot or add to it. I keep changing my mind.

Really like this one.

That was the only thing on the beach apart from a selection of loons. Having seen all the crap washed up at Saltburn I would've imagined there would've been a lot more at Whitby. 10 mins is quite some exposure but it's given a great shadow and that marvellous texture to the sand.

Crikey 10 minutes, I assume you're using a remote shutter release if so which one? I don't think I'm keen on the footprints going through the centre of the branch because it makes the image looked staged. Other than that the lighting and detail are fantastic.

Yep, I used a remote release unlike poor Russ who had to hold the button down for the whole duration of his exposures. I just bought one of the cheap German Adidt ones off eBay.

I am now suffering from shutterreleaseitis... Nice image Jamey but like you are mentioning the footprints may detract from the image a bit.

I think the footprints work rather well ;) I love the colours and the amount of detail in there ;) I've always wanted to try really long exposures, but there isn't anything near me that would look interesting

Just go out to a field or something. When you make pitch black look as bright as daylight, even boring scenes become interesting and slightly eerie.

Sparse, I like it.
