Ready for 2021! Better than 2020!
Thanks Ian, I did play around with the crop but I ended up liking that flare of light in the upper portion of the image. I did take some other long exposures of a different pier where it cropped them exactly like your suggesting (and for the same reason)Very nice Bill. I'd be inclined to lose a little off the top to emphasise the length of the pier but that's very much my opinion
Thanks JIm.Nice minimalist type image and sitting the horizon on halfway looks very pleasing to the eye, particularly given the sign advertising the length of the pier, it really emphasises that.
Thanks FD.Very nice image Bill, agree with Ian on maybe bring the top down a bit. Lovely image.
Thank you Helen, I haven't been out shooting long exposures in a while and it was fun getting back to it.I do love a long exposure. Like this shot a lot.. nice lead in line and reflections.
Thanks Tim, it's 470 meters long.The long exposure really has smoothed the water here.
How long is that pier?
Thanks Dave, I give up. I'll post a re-edited version below.Nice scene and another vote for the top crop to bring the horizon onto the top third line
Thank you Roxanne, I appreciate the kind words.This is amazing. Love the long exposure on the water and how it makes the image feel so calm. So good!
Thanks minx.that does look very tranquil thanks to the long exposure great start to the year
Thank you Allan.Very good, love the tones in the image
Thanks Jim. My preference was for the original but I can see the argument for the edited version.For me, the original is a much better crop as it just seems more balanced. Lovely set of images there.
LOL, it is all about garnering the most votes isn't Ian?And I like the re-edit. Question is - which one do you prefer - because that's what's important.
Thanks Phissy.A nice tranquil start Bill
I agree Martin, but I guess, ultimately, we only have to please ourselves...Odd how people's perspectives differ, I would have preferred MORE sky to bring more attention to the start of the pier.
Thanks Shug, I'm still learning the new system but I was happy with the output.Nice picture - edited version for me. I like how the water has been smoothed but not robbed of all detail - perfect long exposure for me!
Thanks Tom!I love this long exposure, I quite like the edited version but the original is my favourite. So calm
Thanks Kell, I'm a fan of minimalist images myself. I've shot this area a number of times but managed to catch the fog that morning which blurred out the shoreline that you usually see on the horizon.I think I prefer the edited version, but I'm a big fan of the last one you posted. Just so minimal.
Thank you Susie. The bird shot is one of my favs.What a fabulous tranquil scene, I love the long exposure .... super additional shots too, I find them mesmerising
Thanks Heather.Nice start to 2021 Bill, I am a lover of long exposure so was drawn to this one straight away.
Thanks Nick that is in line with my original thought for the image.What a beautiful shot to start off with! I actually prefer the original crop, to me there's a greater sense of space and scale.
Thank you Stuart!Fantastic leading lines and well composed scene. The minimalist extra one you added (last one) is great
Oh that works well: four prongs through an orange segment. Focus spot on!
A nice idea but would have preferred it without the fork. Nice DoF and framing.
I actually like the fork, it makes the image more interesting... and..... ouch!
I don't mind the fork there, but who uses one to eat orange segments. Segment is nice and sharp, plenty of detail against the OOF background. An interesting shot.
I’m not sure about the fork, I think it would be fine without it, excellent focus though,
I too was pondering the use of a fork for eating oranges, but I agree it makes it different so more interesting.
also quite cool the way the fork disappears into darkness yet everything around it has some light.
yep - works very well
Looks good to me. I like that you got the fork tines poking through the segment and the focus is in just the right place with a good use of dof.
Really interesting shot! I love it
Thank you all for your comments.The fork is a great addition and adds lots of interest. DoF is excellent. Really like this.
