While sorting through old photographs yesterday in the archive and cleaning/rearranging files, I came across this set of bracketed landscape images with long exposures of water I took while checking out some of the historic and forgotten back roads of West Virginia. This one was off McKendree Road, considered McKendree, West Virginia (unincorporated).
There’s a bridge over it that water was spilling off of onto the other side. I used that shot for an altered landscapes composite project for a college assignment at the time, and this was just a lovely landscape behind it that I captured as a personal bonus.
I do not recall my exact settings on the camera for this image, but I can tell you basically how it was created:
I set up the camera on a sturdy tripod.
I bracketed 5-7 images from darker to lighter exposures.
All of the exposures were long in order to cater the water’s movement.
I merged the bracketed images during editing and performed some color corrections.
