Folly Beach Long Exposure

Sticking with the Folly Beach theme from yesterday...

After sunrise we stuck around for a bit and I got the chance to try out my new 16 stop Firecrest ND filter by Formatt Hitech.  Although I had ordered this and the mounting system for it some time ago, I really hadn't gotten much of a chance to try it out yet.

What a better place than the ocean?  It seems water, especially moving back and forth water, goes very well with longer exposures.  It creates a very surreal look that everyone seems to like.

ISO 400, 51mm, F/8 @ 4 Minutes and 6 seconds

This exposure was over 4 minutes long.  If you think waiting on a 30 second exposure is long, try a 4 or 5 minute one!

I used my Sony A7R, Metabones adapter and Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens.  Of course the ND Filter was the new Formatt Hitech Firecrest 16 stop ND.  All of this was resting atop my Vanguard Abeo Plus 323CT tripod.

I also processed the image in Lightroom and On1's Perfect Black and White.
