The light at sunrise was spectacular following an unusual storm. I arranged the posts in the frame to make a diagonal line pointing towards the city. The extra long exposure softened the clouds and water to enhance the impression of how it felt to be there on this morning.


Without the two stacked filters, the exposure time would have been about 1 second and that would have made the water look rather messy. Also, I still had to use a ND grad filter to darken the sky in relation to the water just as I would have, had I not used the two stacked filters.
