An earlier shot from my single evening shooting the sunset on the Charles River in Boston. I find these shots, high f-stop, low ISO, to be the hardest to capture. I don’t like shooting at higher ISO settings, it introduces more noise than I’d like. I try to compensate by shooting with a negative exposure bias, but sometimes I find that introduces noise as well.

I haven’t figured out which method would work best in a shot like this, where you want to stop the motion of the water, but reduce the incoming light. So much to learn. So little time.

And for my sister, who sometimes looks at my photos… yes, I over-sharpened the water in this one on purpose. I just wanted to see what it would look like. 🙂
