The Aparition

Headed over to Bexhill as the seafront there has an abundance of photo oppurtunities.

Thes shelters have so much character and I've been after a shot of one for ages.

This is a 110 second exposure with me sitting in the shelter having a ghostly presence thanks to the LE.

It was quite refreshing doing a LE where the sea doesn't dominate the picture but I would have loved to see more of a streaking sky for extra drama.

I increased the vignette to encapsulate the shelter.

For this picture I pressed the button on my cable release and locked it in position with bulb mode activated then just walked over and sat down, at the end of the exposure I got up and released the button, simples.

I got a few funny looks as my camera and tripod was left in the middle of the pavement and I was sitting in the shelter hidden slightly for a couple of LE pictures.

As you can see I'm getting better at colour correction.
