Strata.

The layers of the beach fade away, as the sun slowly bleeds red… extinguished.

    Glad that you’re back Peter. Is this beautiful shot straight from the camera? If not what did you do to achieve it?

    Also, it seems you rarely leave f1.4 with this lens… In simple terms, do you decrease aperture just to increase depth of field, or could it be to reduce light, or even another reason?

      Thanks John, it’s good to be back posting.

      In answer to your question:

      “…do you decrease aperture just to increase depth of field, or could it be to reduce light…”

      The answer is: both. I wanted more depth of field, but I also needed to reduce the light to avoid over-exposing, given the 1 sec exposure time.

      Hope that helps.

    Now, I’m really have a logic problem… If you wanted to reduce light, why did you go for one-second exposure?

    Was the camera hand-held?

    Really lovely. I have never considered a longish exposure with me M9. I bought a kit of 10 stop filters for my Nikon and since I never use the Nikon I have never tried the filters.

    I thought that all your lenses were glued to max aperture 🙂

    Beautiful image! I really like the shaprness and coloring in this picture. Great choice to stop down the aperture to f/16.
