thank you. shutter speed was in the order of 1/125 for the left side (light house) to 1/250 for the right side. not too hard at 16mm getting steady shots like that. the key is keeping horizon in the dead middle of the frame as you shoot.

Actually there's no need to have the horizon in the middle of the frame, either handlheld or on a tripod. The camera can be pitched up or down, so long as the plane of rotation is kept reasonably flat and steady. (And as you discovered, letting the exposure change from shot to shot creates the need for difficult exposure balancing in post!)

But the result is just beautiful; very nicely done. I never tire of seeing your takes on Palos Verdes.
