Dark Waters by RS-foto Dark Waters by RS-foto
Usually when it looks rainy you stay home and watch tv or something. I've had this location in mind for quite some time and I've been waiting for the right weather. There was some nice stormy looking clouds on the sky so I tought I'll give it a go. I managed to get few shots before the sky went plain gray and it started to rain too much. I even saw one lightning but no thunderstorm..

Using ND400 (9-stop neutral density) filter usually gives interesting hue to the pictures as a side effect compared to shooting without one. With such low light conditions and ND400 filter I could have used ridicilously long exposures but due to sideways moving clouds I didn't want the exposure be too long. I used reasonable f-stop which allowed me to exposure for 'only' 60 secs

I hope you like it!

Amazing shot mate. The colors are amazing, are they all natural? I've never seen such an awesome looking sky.

I really like the vignetting on this shot. Even though it's considered a 'flaw' by many, this shot wouldn't be complete without it.

The composition is also awesome. Very nice positioning of the stone ledge thing.

:thumbsup:Very awesome shot.

I used some weird white balange settings and the city lights reflecting from the clouds created this interesting tone. Also the long exposure had something to do with it too ;)

Ah, I'll have to try that sometime. What color was the sky without the off-set WB?

Wonderful atmosphere. Ominous yet calm. Great contrast between the smooth clouds/water and the detailed texture of the stones - and they have surprisingly many colors, even though all of them are dark hues!

Yeah I wanted it to be dark, but there should still be pretty much detail in the shadows. If you can't see them, maybe your monitor is too dark ;)

Nice shot, i pretty much like the contrast between the strong textures of the stones and its edgy hand-made construction versus the very silky look of the water and sky.
Plus the strong tones add alot to the mood.
Well captured

Just today someone asked me what the purpose of the ND1000 filter was. Too bad I see this so late...
Lovely shot and a wonderful location!
