Portrait Of A Pier by aFeinPhoto-com Portrait Of A Pier by aFeinPhoto-com
4 images. ~30s each on a very very unusually clear morning. Large surf made for the misty atmosphere that the light was able to make fairly unique as the beams hit the mountainside. I really try and stay away from images that are 1:4 because they become very difficult to print at a decent size as they need to be very large to look good. But alas :)

Much thanks for the c/c!

This photo look great. The lighting looks quite unreal, too good to be true but I'm confident you didn't manipulated it :) It is so dreamy that the mountains look like the ones generated with some software I don't know, but much much prettier :D.

The long exposure trick with the panoramic format looks awesome though I understand the difficulties for printing such format, I've faced the same thing trying with my shot called La Cannée...

The clear skies and long exposure definitely give it a surreal feel. Fun times! :)

Is it always foggy there?

Never foggy actually. This is just the long exposure blurring the water. :)

I was speaking of the haze beyond the pier, not the ocean below.

Ah ha...well there ya go. Sorry. The haze is actually sea spray from the large surf that was coming in :)

That's cool. I guess over a long exposure then, it would appear like settling fog. Well done Aaron.

Love it, one of my faves of yours. The warm glow of morning light, the misty surf and pin sharp pier all combine for an almost surreal yet tranquil feel to it. Would love to see it as a huge print.

Ah, funny what each person takes out of the photograph and thank you very much for the kind words. Would definitely need to be huge to appreciated. Silly 1:4 :P

Love it but you focused on the pier and I was focused on the mountains behind it. They're so beautiful and majestic.

I've seen that photograph before and we've chatted via flickr actually. My aim is to capture something along those lines. He got amazingly lucky with conditions to get that reflection. It's on my list :)
