Hello Bob,

Attached is a picture taken last November while on a trip to the Outer Banks. Information follows:

Early Morning -- Nags Head Fishing Pier Consider the contract between the dark, hard pier pilings and the light, soft ocean waves. Required long exposure (1.5 sec) to blur/soften the waves, so therefore the minimum lens aperture of f/22 and minimum camera ISO of 100 were used.

In addition, a polarizing filter not only reduced the reflections from the wet pier pilings, but also helped increase the exposure time. A secondary benefit of the small aperture is a large depth of field. Camera is a Nikon D300, 38mm lens setting.

    Charles:
    I like the way you positioned the pilings so we can wind our way visually underneath of the pier area. Also by using HDR I can really feel the mothion of the water. Good tip re. using a polarizer. — Bob
