Midday Long Exposure, Brooklyn Bridge, New York City

Back... my tripod is beginning to wear three marks into the concrete here. Anyway, I went back this afternoon to try out a long exposure with fast moving clouds. This area of the sky seemed the least cloudy, though. I used my ND-400 X and ND8 filters to increase the exposure time by 13 stops. I tried converting this to B/W, but it just didn't look that good. The colors were burning my retinas, so I desaturated quite a bit. I used the Satechi remote for this, which works well once you figure it out, even though it feels pretty junky. I also applied a bit of keystoning correction.

 

Single exposure / f/18 / 58s / 18mm (27mm=) / ISO 100 / Hoya ND-400 X + Hoya ND8
