Lately, I’m becoming more proficient in my B&W LE post production work. I call this image Reincarnation because it’s a re-edit on an image I posted a year ago called Still:Life. Before my trip to Eleuthera Bahamas last November, I picked up the ND 10-Stop filter by B+W. I was really enjoying working with this filter for the first time, but I hadn’t yet been inspired by any real great long exposure work like the images I see on Google+, so my post processing at that time was mediocre at best! Because of the grand inspiration over the last few months or so, I decided to revisit some LE’s I took on my trip and this one needed some attention! I tried a square crop on this one after completion, but it just wasn’t working for me. The wide view really was necessary to give the image scale and impact, not to mention fitting in all the cloud movement. I’m not sure this image came out as sharp as I would of liked it, mainly because of the 30-40 m.p.h. sustained winds during most of my trip. All in all as I hesitated to post this image today, this is a common feeling I get and when I do the images resonate better with the viewers than I had thought.
