Default Re: Oceanic Pier at Sunset

Thanks Joe. One of my "mentors" beat into my head the idea of keeping the shadows open. It seems an ever present thought in my mind when working on images.

I've seen a lot of pier at sunset photos that use a slower shutter speed. The technique does give the water a nice, smooth, erethral look. However it takes away the feeling of movement in the water. I spent a lot of years exploring beneath the surface and teach scuba diving. To me the sea is a living, breathing thing... the rhythm of the waves its pulse, the rise and fall of the tides its breath. As such I wanted a shutter speed that would express some movement.

When I mentioned that I've seen a lot of pier photos in the above paragraph I mean I'VE SEEN A LOT OF PIER PHOTOGRAPHS! Almost always shot at sunrise or sunset with the pier centered in the frame... usually a vertical shot. I wanted to do something a bit different (I have another idea or two for alternate compositions I may try in the near future.)

Again, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I always appreciate it.
