Good morning, and I hope everyone had a very happy new year’s.

Today’s post comes to us from Salisbury, MA.  This is the underside of the Pavilion at Salisbury Beach, an ocean-front complex that consists of several restaurants, a gift shop, and a music hall.  Although I’ve never actually been inside, I believe that this section that I shot is directly beneath the music hall.  It was a foggy morning, and I was drawn to the simplicity of the concrete supports and building with the cloudy sky and relatively calm tide.  As you can probably tell from some of my recent posts, I just can’t seem to get enough of long-exposure photography, and have been experimenting using several long exposures and combining them in Photoshop to get more detail in the highlights and shadows.  Lately I’ve been liking the more natural look of a Photoshop blended image instead of the more traditional HDR shot.

Nikon D90, Nikkor 18-70, B&W ND10, f/11, 18mm, 30 and 60 second exposures blended in CS5

    I like the nice and simple aspect of this. Nice shapes and cool misty look in the background. Happy new year man!
