A while back I arose before sparrow fart and headed off to the coast at Sandgate/ Shorncliffe.
Either photo has it's own qualities. Both are the same setting, the only difference is the use of an ND filter. Blocking out more light allowing for a much longer shutter duration, the result? Blurred lines. Drama, a cinematic look, I guess. The extreme vignetting comes also from the ND filter and wide angle lens. Both photos are straight from developer / scanner.
A tripod and cable release was used for both and is highly recommended in low light and especially when doing long exposures (< 1/20th). Manfrotto is my preferred brand.
