Exceptional composition and photography

Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this photo in Hong Kong Victoria Harbour
Time
It is magic hour time, around 6:00pm
Lighting
The lighting of magic hour is electric blue. It is very dramatic and attractive. I used a graduated ND filter to balance the exposure between the sky and the bottom sea . I used 25sec to capture the motion blur of the cloud .
Equipment
I used my favour Nikon D700 camera and nikkor afs 28-70mm with a Graduated ND filter lens.
Inspiration
Hong Kong Skyline is very famous in the World, especially in sunset time and night time.
Editing
It just do some normal color and contrast adjust
In my camera bag
I like simple . Mostly, I carry My Nikon D700 and afs 28-70mm lenses. sometime with a Gitzo1228
Feedback
A durable tripod is a MUST in this kind of long exposure photography. Sharpness is very importance for Cityscape photo.
