Shoreline Lake

Made a return visit to Shoreline Lake, but minus the excitement of Fourth of July fireworks.

Took the first shot on a tripod with the 14-24mm lens.

Nikon D800, AF-S Zoom-Nikor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, ISO 100, 24mm, f/8, 1/50s

Not that interesting. I wanted to experiment with a longer shutter speed to smooth the water. Using the no filter 14-24mm lens, it was much too light outside to do anything about that. So, I switched to the love/hate 28-300mm.

I also added an ND filter and set the camera to bracket 5 shots by 1 EV, which I combined using Photomatix Pro. The HDR version has a lot more detail in the sky. I also like the reflections off the smooth, glassy lake. So, ethereal.
