Misty Waves


Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


I was trying to come up with something interesting along this fairly ordinary shore along the lake. I took a lot of shots trying to get a decent composition with this piece of driftwood. The long exposure blurred out the somewhat small waves and created a mistiness right above the small rocks.

Technical Details

Sony A7r4, 50 mm f1.4 Sigma Art lens
30 seconds @ f6.3, ISO 100
I post-processing I cranked the exposure way up on this to get it closer to a high key look. I probably should have used something like f12 to get the foreground stones sharper though…
