Cheri Sundra - It even looks more awesome in this larger size than it does on Facebook! It’s absolutely haunting…and I LOVE the story behind it!

Chris Maskell - Hi Scott. I would probably have sat on an image where someone had walked in frame, however, when viewing this great shot in context with the story, it adds another dimension.

Nancy Thorington - very haunting…I remember when there was a lot more ship there…and it was used for advertising….interesting treatment…

luis - this is a very good storytelling picture! An image does not need to be technically perfect to be a great image!

Kris Koeller - Its a very cool effect, and fits the narrative of the image perfectly. Well done.

Muggs Ferguson - Scott, first, Awesome image! Isn’t that WHY we photograph in the first place, to gain memories? I know for myself there were times that I would drive for hours, lug my 4X5 for miles and come home with “nothing” worth printing. But you know what, THEY are the days I remember most often and most clearly.

Wayne Woodruff - Great story, the shadow adds a whole new level of mystery.

Toad Hollow Photography - I don’t even know what to say… highly charged, my friend! There’s a strong story, and with it great tension, in this shot accompanied by the background story. Terrific work, my friend!


Nikon D7000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 10mm, f/4, ISO 400, 244 seconds I recently had the opportunity to visit the Old York County Prison in Pennsylvania, with permission from the owner.  He and his family are interested in selling the property and because of it’s history, it deserves to be photographed!  One person who is helping […]

Morning Wood

Mike Criswell - Sweet colors Scott, nice work

Wayne Woodruff - Thanks for the technical details, I appreciate it! The pipe has some killer textures and the colors are awesome.

I tried a similar shot back in July, but it didn’t work as well and I know why. I stacked a 2 + 4 ND, which vignetted at f22 (well, duh). Had I used a 10 stop, I could have a larger aperture, likely avoided the vignette, and gotten more blur out of the water. Regardless, I cropped the color shot and had it printed on metal, which came out really well. It sits on my desk and is very soothing.

I plan to return to the scene of the crime and try again.

Scott Frederick - Great shot Wayne. I will get vignettes when stacking filters at wide angles. I try to shoot with my 17-55 a lot during 16 stop shots. Or atleast 18-20mm on my 10-24. The f/22 didn’t cause this.

October 1, 2012 - 9:17 am

Kris Koeller - Well-played on the title. Great shot, too!

PAUL ST. LOUIS - Morning Wood is an absolutely beautiful photograph. I spend some time every day studying photographs on the internet and rarely do I find one that compares to Morning Wood. Thanks for your explanation of how you use the ND filters.

ABarlow - Funny name, sweet shot man. I agree, well played :)

Laura Hegfield - gorgeous… I’m visiting from Wayne’s post… I grew up outside of Philly but now live on the edge of the woods and bogs in NH… I am such a hack photographer, but it brings me great joy nonetheless… your work is stunning!

Suzanne Theodora White - Great Shot.
