Manhattan Beach - Long Exposure

Manhattan Beach long exposure sunset

Here is a long exposure sunset from the Manhattan pier. LE's are a great way to change up the mood of your shot by smoothing out the water texture and by changing the dynamics of the clouds by capturing the movement of them. The mood will vary from how much the clouds streak across the image. In this shot, the sky had serious potential but only lit up in a few spots during the burn so I oped for a longer exposure to capture the nice pinks moving through the sky. The length of shutter time usually depends on how fast the clouds are moving. With a lot of wind, sometimes 20-30 seconds is all you need. Since they weren't moving too fast I slapped on the ND and opted for a minute exposure.
