I paid a visit to this beach in Pulau Ubin. It's one of the popular campsites on the island, located in the northeast area. I brought along my HOYA ND-400 filter lens to try and make a few images.
The weather was good. It was overcast through out the whole day, with minor dark clouds passing by. Well, fortunately without any drizzle or rain. It was the perfect condition for the kind of photography I wanted to make. Note that the sea water is blur due to the wave motion and long exposure timing. At the time of exposing, there was sea breeze which resulted to the motion blur of the palm tree leaves on the top frame.
For this scenery, I made many bracket shots with my D70s on Tamron 17-35mm wide angle lens, mounted on tripod at waist level. Focal length at 17mm. I combined 2 of the best exposed brackets in layered format (*.psd). Converted to black & white in Adobe Photoshop CS2, with standard burning technique on the foreground sand and sky, to bring out more clouds details.
