Happy Tuesday, and I hope everyone had a nice long holiday weekend. Have you ever had one of those times where you keep trying to find the right composition at the right moment, but each time you set up you wish you had stayed in the spot you were just in? That’s how my morning on Plum Island went this past weekend. Each time I moved from the wide angle shots of the boardwalk and sky to some abstract shots of the waves and sand, and vice versa, the lighting conditions kept making me wish I stayed put. Finally, long after the sun had risen, the light and the clouds conspired together and presented me with this shot. As for processing, I blended two exposures – one of the boardwalk and grass, and one of the sky – in PS to balance the contrast of the scene.
Camera settings: ISO 200, f/13, 24 mm, 2 exposures blended in PS
