Since I took the supermoon, I was able to take another set of long exposure shots. Thankfully, Boston has its share of shores to take photos from.


Since this spot was also close to the airport, got to experiment with light streaks.

I really like how the first one turned out- looks almost like an HDR shot!

That first one is stunning. Is the horizon tilted a bit or is it me? Sometimes I think my computer leans to the left.

Thanks guys, glad you like them; makes me wish I stayed longer if I wasn't so worried I was getting in the way of some teens' makeout sessions while I was wandering through.

Thanks, me, I'm just glad I didn't go nutty half of the time trying to get the curves balanced on the image like most HDR shots! Still have to abuse Camera Raw to unfair levels half of the time, though...

It might be.

I didn't bring a tripod, so most of my composition involved propping against a random object that I felt was secure, maybe using my keys, tissue pack, or cellphone for a makeshift beanbag/level. Since I usually prop the camera on the side that has the wired remote, these newer smartphones tend to be too thin to make it work as well as an effective level. Makes me miss using a Treo or some other brick.

To be honest, I've been exploring through here and there in Boston's surrounding area and Winthrop usually strikes me as one of the neighborhoods I appreciate more than others: waterfront everywhere, somewhat remote, planes flying overhead all the time (I don't care what people think about the noise, I love it!). Makes it worth dragging thirty pounds on your back for a few miles.
