Rock Steady

Rock Steady

Just a quick post for today.  This is one of the jetties along Plum Island in Newburyport, MA.  I’ve posted shots of these rocks in the past, but thought I’d try a B&W long exposure for this one.  On cloudy or overcast days here, I almost always go in thinking about how an image will look in B&W, and then shoot and process accordingly.

      Also curious as to what type of neutral density filters you use.

        I mostly use the B+W 10 Stop ND filter which works like a dream. I sometimes use a polarizer instead when there’s less light and I don’t need the 10 stops.

          Thanks – I’ve been in the market but can’t seem to push myself to make a decision. It’s good to hear what others are using.

    Great shot! The black and white processing works wonders for the image.
    I usually do the same thing when I’m out on a dreary day. To me there is no point processing a photo in color if there isn’t much to show.

    The long exposure and the monochrome treatment work perfectly here, Steven.
