Fall Evening

Long exposures on rivers are tricky because of the trees and bushes along the side… if there’s any wind, you end up with blurry where you don’t want blurry. A good way around this is to to combine multiple exposures (take a couple of photos with different settings and blend them together in Photoshop.) In this case I didn’t do that, so there’s a bit of fuzziness in the leaves I’d have preferred to not have there. I was also hoping for a little longer exposure time, but the ones I took that way didn’t turn out. I was going to pass on editing this one much at all or posting it, but sometimes I’ve found that even with a few big technical issues that make me cringe, I still end up liking the overall “mood” of the photo. In this case, the photo feels very much to me how this Fall season has felt to me, so I decided to share it.
