Rowes Wharf

Rowes Wharf is a beautiful spot in Boston where you will find a marina, restaurants, hotels, water transportation and during the summer a floating stage for concerts.

When Melissa and I were there, it was a chilly and sunny day with little clouds in the sky. Every so often, the water would move heavily as well.

I set up my Lee Big Stopper (10 stop neutral density) and stacked a 2 stop ND filter on top of it. The end result was 30 second exposure so the water would smooth into ice and the reflections of the buildings would pop out in the water.

When doing a long exposure like this, hang your camera bag from the center hook of your tripod. Doing so will add more weight, further preventing any movement during the shooting process.

Gear: Nikon D800 & 70-200 f/2.8 VR II
Exif: ISO 100, 70mm, f/11, 30 sec.
Processing: Adobe Lightroom

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

Scott
