Shot with a Canon 40D, Canon 10-22, 22mm, f/20, 1.3 sec, ISO 100, +1 EV, did not fire, used 2 stop ND filter + 2 stop split ND filter, mirror lockup and remote switch, in-camera long exposure noise reduction was on.

This was taken near Marquette on Middle Bay on Lake Superior on the same evening as the previous image. I set my camera up on the bedrock at the water’s edge looking north just before sunset. I set out to break the rule of thirds significantly, setting the horizon one-eighth down from the top of the image to maximize the visibility of the rocks on the right side of the image. Setting the horizon at this location made the sky almost twice the height of the island on the horizon, which I felt was a good balance. I used a neutral-density filter to get a slow shutter speed and a split neutral-density filter above the horizon. I tried to time my shots between the waves to get smooth water in the foreground, as in this image.

Exif: F Number: 20, Exposure Bias Value: 1.00, ExposureTime: 13/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 22.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 40D
