OK, back to the Old Severn Bridge at sunset for another long exposure attempt… about 17 minutes this time! It was getting very late in the day – I had already attempted from sunset shots which weren’t that great. But, after the sun was virtually gone, I thought I’d take a stab at one long exposure to see what happened, and this is it:
Settings: 60mm – f/9 – ISO100 – 1038sec. 10stop filter.
Am really happy with it, considering it was a stab in the dark. One rookie error I have earned from this though – after taking the image, the camera took another 20 minutes or so to process the image. Turns out this is because I had a noise reduction setting on, which apparently takes a second image after to identify any noise in the image which is can compensate for a remove. A great feature, but if taking very long exposures, best to turn off (unless you are incredibly patient).
