Hi Everyone,

 

I'm posting here, because Long Term Exposure is still pretty new to me.

 

For my first 2018 photography project, I decided that some Long Exposure Photography at Rocky Point Pier and Park would be a great start to the year.  It would also be a great chance to try out the Lee 10 stop filter that I recently purchased.  In late January, the weather gods finally cooperated, and gave me a small window.  Off I went.

 

These were all shot on a tripod, with a Lee 10 stop filter.  I used the 14-24 lens, with apertures ranging from f7.1 to f14.  Exposures varied from 8 seconds to 25 seconds.

I love this stuff, especially when a monochrome conversion adds to the effect of the image.

What I'm after now is feedback.  I have rarely tried long term exposures.  While I think that I'm getting better (I believe it's called lots of trials and lots of errors ;) ) with every outing, there is always a better way to build a mousetrap.  So feedback, tips and tricks are most welcome.

 

Thanks for looking everyone.  :)

I love the intensity of the images especial the second one (the clouds look like there moving) but for me I would push the shadow slider to the right just a tad.  and slide the contrast to left just a tad.

Very dramatic, Mark.

 

My only critique is the docks on the left are too dark.  A little more light there might improve the image.

 

The last picture is nice as well, but for my taste, also a bit too dark.

 

Otherwise, excellent work.

I like them kind of moody.

The effort is the important part. Keep doing more. And...I would love to see a color version.

This is art, pure and simple. Beautifully done!!! I can't decide between the second and third as my fave.

Try bringing the shadows up, as mentioned by others, but keep these copies. I think the inky black in the shadows is a good approach too.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
