Nickerson Beach After Sunset
5

This set was taken on my last outing to the beach on Wednesday. It was the first time there was no smoke evident in the upper atmosphere yet the colors I saw at sunset hints that there may still be some. I've used a bunch of different techniques in this set for both taking the photos and processing. Some have very slow shutter speeds while others use selective noise reduction and/or sharpening. The EXIF data is present and you will see ISOs ranging from 1600 to 3200 both of which are fine on my X-T3. Shutter speed gets as low as 1/13 while others are about 1/500. The images are presented in time order and span about to 20 minutes. The subject is Black Skimmers in all but one.

Interesting stuff Morris. The last two are bit like impressionist art. While most are going for sharp in focus close ups, you are doing something a little more adventurous.

Thank you Aaron,

I discovered motion blur in 2005 winning a contest as a result and this started a trend with many photographers doing blurs.  There are a few on my web site.  I've done so many I had a good idea what the blast off would look like and waited for it when I saw a young girl walking towards the skimmer colony
