More long exposures on a sleepy island
Lens: Sigma 10-20 4-5.6 Camera: k5 Photo Location: Inch Island, Ireland 
Posted By: captainbert, 01-17-2012, 10:25 AM

This was my third day out toying with long exposures with a Hoya ND400 9 stop filter. I think the results are not fantastically sharp or as dramatic as i would have hoped just showing that i need much more practice and trips out. Any thoughts most welcome indeed!

Beautiful images that you captured here Garbhan, I especially like the first photo. The long exposure and filter gives a very nice softness to the photos. You certainly found a great place to take photographs, beautiful indeed. Keep posting here friend, I learn from photography.

Love #1 CB.

It looks to me that if it is drama you are after then you need rougher seas and a lot more clouds in your long ND shots.

I think you did an excellent job. I got the ND 400 for xmas and failed quite miserably the first time out. You captured a very cool effect.

Bob sorry i noticed i spell your name with a small b and not a big B in Bob when i was going through there... accidental bad manners good sir!

Frogfish... that could well make a difference alright into what im after though ive seen some stunning long exposure shots with very ethereal like water. I think you are right about the clouds indeed!

JohnBee thank you very much indeed!

Dice... thanks for your kind words i think maybe im having some luck maybe with the elements in my favor when shooting with the ND400. Happy shooting with it my friend!

Sincerely, garbhán

These look terrific to me - I especially like the first one and sun tones on the water. Great eye, my friend.
