Behind The Lens

Location
I'm a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, so most of my recent photos have been taken in and around Savannah, Georgia. This photo was taken on Tybee island, about 15 miles outside of savannah.
Time
It was evening on a brisk day in January. The sun was nearing it's final approach to the horizon, and the tide was on it's way in, lapping at the concrete and stone tidal barrier in front of me.
Lighting
The lighting in this photo is all natural, a trait most landscape photographs share.
Equipment
I shot this image on a Canon EOS 7D with a Canon EF 28mm 1.8 lens. The tripod was a SLIK PRO 700DX. On the lens I had mounted a LEE Little Stopper ND Filter to achieve the 15 second shutter speed.
Inspiration
The ocean is one of my favorite subjects to shoot. It is always in motion, constantly fighting against stillness of the shoreline. I wanted to use a long shutter speed to capture the contrast between the finality of the concrete tidal break and the motion of the waves.
Editing
The only post processing I performed on this image was some light exposure correction and an intensifying of the natural blue hues within the image.
In my camera bag
I usually have a Canon EOS 7D, a Canon EF 28mm 1.8 lens, a LEE ND Filter Set, a SLIK PRO 700DX Tripod, and a simple shutter release timer.
Feedback
Water is something which the human eye is used to seeing in motion. To capture it with a high shutter speed is to present the eye with something it isn't expecting to see and that throws off the beauty of a seascape image. Slowing down the shutter speed reveals an unrealistic representation of water, yet it is a representation which we are much more familiar with in it's movement. If you haven't already experimented with LEE filters, I would. The Neutral Density of the glass is truly neutral, allowing you to capture true color long exposures even in the middle of the day.
