The clouds were providing a very ominous background to the city skyline yesterday until the sun went down and then turned into quite a spectacular display of colors.
I used a 2 Stop Graduated ND filter to balance the sky and a 3 Stop ND filter and allowing me to get an exposure time of 25 seconds. The long exposure time creates the smooth texture on the water which also helps to illustrate the movement of the river.
Single Exposure – ISO 50 – f/22 – 25.0s – 28mm
