As our workshop was heading back to our cars after this sunset shoot, I looked back at the beach area and saw this view. I already had my camera set for a long exposure with a ND filter in place over the lens and the camera still attached to the tripod. This is one of my favorite images from that shoot. I really like the silhouetted trees against the soft surf ocean and fogged shrouded, featureless backround.
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @ 47.0 mm, f/22
for 8.0 secs. ISO: 100. ND filter used strength unknown. Edited in Camera Raw and Photoshop.
Any and all comments appreciated.
