A cool spot down by the Chinese cemetery in Victoria,BC

This is the first time I went shooting in Victoria this year, I don’t venture out that often but this short jaunt from home is a reminder that I don’t have to go far to get something worthwhile. I was actually on my way to a different location but a change of plans led me to this spot, by this time most of the light was already fading so I had limited time before the clouds completely rolled in and the light disappeared.

Manipulation of exposure will dramatically affect the feel of your image, I’ve added my 10 stop ND Filter to achieve a long exposure of 100 seconds, the second shot is a manual blend of exposures, one for the foreground and one for the sky.

It was getting pretty dark and on way back to the van, I saw the 2 chairs overlooking the spot I was just photographing down below so I snapped a couple that I will probably use for istock. The long exposure was almost 3 mins.
