Road,Rail and Sea

After dodging a few security guards in the Maydon Wharf area(I have noticed you have about 15 seconds to grab a capture before they are alerted to your presence),I decided to jump out the car and over a thick bush just next to this canal leading to the bay.Giving myself a few seconds just to see if the sun would peep through the clouds(it did,quite patchy though),I then took this shot,with my tripod just sitting on the edges of the concrete at its lowest height.I wanted to get the overpass,railway line and canal all in the same shot which I just managed.

 

I tone mapped and discarded the result four times before I was happy with the result(deghosting is a pain).I then spent over four hours(my longest processing time to date) to process.This was 3 exposures at 2ev,F11,iso 100.

 

I really enjoyed this one and I hope you guys do too...:-)
