About This Photo:

   This photo was taken on the beach here where I live. The stick platforms you see in the background are made of bamboo and the locals put them there to sit on and fish sardines and other fish in the water. I took this photo on a very gloomy day and I had intended on getting a long 30sec exposure as the sun started to set, instead I was only able to get a 8sec exposure because it started raining. That happens sometimes. Which is why to get the 8sec exposure it required me to use an aperture of f/29 and a 3 stop ND filter, in addition my CPL which got me one more additional stop of light reduction.

   The camera, lens and exposure used was a Canon EOS 600D (T3i), Canon EF-S 10-22mm USM Lens and a exposure settings of ISO100, 8sec, f/29 at 22mm. Also small gorilla pod was used to get the camera low to the ground and hold it steady.
