The above image of the waterfall on Madeira Walk Ramsgate, was taken on a tripod as the exposure time was 120 seconds at Iso 100 F/8.0. I had a Circular Polariser on with a Lee 0.9 soft grad filter and a Lee 10 stop big stopper. This is what created the movement in the clods and the soft falling water.Read More
Have not been out for ages with the camera due to on going home improvements . Tonight i decided i had had enough of decorating and headed out with the camera. I headed over to Margate to try and capture the sunset. Well the sun obviously set but not that it was seen by anyone, the cloud just rolled in at the last minute and completely blocked it. I continued walking along Margate seafront from the Turner Contemporary to the train station. I found an island in the middle of the road that i thought might make a good location to shoot from looking down along the seafront.
There was nothing happening with the sky at all so i decided to do a long exposure to blur out the traffic and create some light trails. I set up my camera on a tripod and composed the shot. I used a Lee Big Stopper , a 10 stop ND filter. This gave me a exposure of 80 seconds at iso 100 F 8/.0 The image was processed using a single RAW file in Lightroom and finished in Photoshop.
Dreamlands new sign, which i think is based on the original, really does dominate the seafront , lets hope they make a real success of their venture and help attract much needed tourists to the area.
Decided to head over to Margate last night to capture the sunset from the steps along Margate seafront. Caught the train over from Ramsgate with my wife and we headed out to the seafront. When we arrived the main road had all been closed off with several police cars stopping traffic at the roundabout. While the Kent Air Ambulance landed on the roundabout.Read More
