Magical image.....extraordinary work! Voted in 'monthly pro vol 28' contest.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken in a small town in Ireland called Buncrana on the mouth of Lough Swilly
Time
This was taken at my favourite time of day when the light is dropping. It was roughly 7pm and the light was fading quickly.
Lighting
The light was fading fast and it was quite windy and overcast. The water was dark and moving fast slightly lit from lights from a bridge off the to right.
Equipment
This was shot using a Sony a77 using a tame on 17-50 2.8 lens. Used a tripod and nd 10 stop filter on the lens
Inspiration
I was aiming to capture long exposures of the water using the nd filter to slightly underexpose the image for a more moody effect.
Editing
I adjusted the white balance using Lightroom to make the scene cooler. Some slight vignette and lens correction and some targeted burn and dodge in Photoshop
In my camera bag
I normally carry Nikon d750 with my16-35 Nikon lens however on this occasion I brought my Sony as my Nikon was being repaired. I often forget the images I can get from my Sony.
Feedback
Have a tripod with you for this type of shot. Especially if you are going for long exposure look and definitely if you are using nd filters.
