I photographed this Lonely Pier near Howard Murph Memorial Park near Rockport, Texas, after photographing the same pier a few minutes earlier and a few dozen yards north of this point. I have been trying to photograph the same subject from multiple vantage points versus staying in one location. I have realized that sometimes the location I originally chose was not the best location. I moved around quite a bit in this location experimenting with different vantage points. For this particular vantage point I was trying to take advantage of the nice sunset colors and the contrasting yellow and blue without the direct sunlight. Moving around the shore and capturing a photo from a different angle eliminated the brightness of the sun and allowed for the colors to be a bit softer.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II Lens set on 70mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/14, shutter speed at ten seconds and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my Syrp Variable Neutral Density filter for a longer exposure. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
