Crusty Pipe

Scott Frederick Photography, Long Exposure, B&W

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8, 20mm, f/16, ISO 100, 240 Seconds, B+W ND110 + 106

Longport Point in New Jersey is a great location for landscape photography. Especially long exposure black and white images. The day I captured this shot, there was an amazing fog rolling over the area during the afternoon hours. This created a diffused horizon line, which I exaggerated here using a high key technique. I can’t stress the importance of patience when working on these types of images as the masking can be long and tedious. Not to mention a workout on your carpal tunnel!;)I worked with a zoom setting of 600% and a brush size of 3 pixels for most of the pipe masking. Once this was done, I was able to separate the pipeline from the rest of the image and work on those areas separately.
