Pier At Union Point

On our last day in New Bern we decided to get together at Union Point Park for sunrise. After the sun had peaked above the horizon, we spent some time shooting around the piers that protrude out into the Neuse River. This is a 20 second exposure that I shot with my B+W 10-stop filter.

Gear: Canon EOS 60D, Tamron AF 10-24mm, B+W 10-stop Filter

Software: Adobe Lightroom 3, Adobe Photoshop CS5, Topaz Adjust 5, Topaz Black and White Effects

    I agree with Toad – this hangs in space – kind of Surreal. beautiful piece of Minimalism.

    What an amazing shot! It almost looks as if the pier is hanging in space due to the effect on the water from your ND filter there! Well seen and shot, my friend.

    I like how the 10 stop filter smoothed out the water.

    It’s the simple ones that really work the best. A nice, perfectly balanced image with great detail from the wood grain. I like the low POV as well.

    Nice minimalism, Curt. The wood grain in the foreground is interesting and I really like the geometric balance.
