Nice image, great use of a slower shutter speed for the cloud movement. Did you use a graduated ND and a full one together?

The boat house



This is a place that I have visited several time in search of the perfect capture. I finally captured it on a day when the sky was full of clouds and the wind was gusty. Perfect for this long exposure.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image is of a Chicago Park district boat house in Chicago, Illinois.
Time
This is a place that I have visited several time in search of the perfect capture. I finally captured it on a day when the sky was full of clouds and the wind was gusty. Perfect for this long exposure.
Lighting
This is a place that I have visited several time in search of the perfect capture. I finally captured it on a day when the sky was full of clouds and the wind was gusty. Perfect for this long exposure. Take just as the sun was beginning to set, which provided a nice soft light on its reflective metallic surface.
Equipment
This was captured on a tripod Induro tripod with a Manfrotto 410 greared head, using a Nikon 810, Aperture: f/14, ISO: 64, Shutter Speed: 103/,1Focal Length: 350/10. No flash was used. A 2 stop gradated netural density and a 4 stop netural density was used,triggered was a cable release.
Inspiration
This is a place that I have visited several time in search of the perfect capture. I finally captured it on a day when the sky was full of clouds and the wind was gusty. Perfect for this long exposure.
Editing
I used Nik, Silver Efex Pro to post-process my RAW image.
In my camera bag
My equipment in my LowePro ProTactic 450AW bag generally consist of my Nikon 810, Nikon 14-35mm, Nikon 24-70mm, Nikon 80-400mm and a Tokina 110mm macro lens. I also carry 100x150 filters, a 10, 6 and 4 stop Hitech Firecrest ND filter. A 1, 2, and 3 stop100 x 150 Hitech Firecrest GND filter and a Breakthrough 3 stop reverse hard filter.

Flashlight, lens Pen, Lens Blower, Hoodmen Lupe, extra batteries and SD cards, a cable release and a 24" collapsable circular diffuser.
Feedback
Just because to capture what you think is a great image once does not mean that you cannot go back and do better. I visited this pace several time in search of the perfect capture. I finally captured it on a day when the sky was full of clouds and the wind was gusty. Perfect for this long exposure.
