Flooded beach on a cold winter morning, Loire river near Orléans, France.

Flooded beach on a cold winter morning, Loire river near Orléans, France.

During last Sunday’s morning stroll, I found this scene which, I think, is graphically quite interesting. The light was beautiful, the winter-sun was quite low and shining through some branches behind me which created some interesting patterns. A long exposure of about 20 seconds was used to create the “silky water” look. Not much post-processing was done on this one, it looked very good straight out of the camera. I only removed some spots, desaturated the image and brightened up the top half.

How it was done:

Sigma 10-20mm lens at 20 mm with a Hoya ND400 filter
Camera on tripod
Exposure time: 20 seconds at F16, ISO100
Imported in Adobe Lightroom
Some tweaking in Adobe Lightroom (cropped, spots removed and desaturated)
