Title: Isle of Arran sunrise
Post by: Vieri Bottazzini on October 07, 2019, 05:07:15 pm
I call the Isle of Arran's landscapes home. They are always familiar to me, and always new. They never disappoint, never let me down. Sure, sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate - but that's normal, and it doesn't matter: photographing the sun rising over what looks like a sculptor's work, is simply priceless :) 1.4 second exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 21mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.

Thank you for viewing, best regards

Amazing. Most photographers concentrate on the mountains and rarely on the shore.

Thank you. Which filter did you use? Why did you opt for a 1 sec exposure? (And not less to get sharper waves)

I used a Grad ND and a ND filter. 1 sec was chosen exactly not to get sharper waves, but to smoothen them out a bit instead. Best regards,
