My Top Summer Sunset

Shot:
The sunsets over a marina in Monmouth Beach, NJ. This was the top sunset I was able to photograph this summer.

Technique:
The original shot was taken with a 10 Stop ND and a 3 Stop Gradient ND to smooth out the water and cut out some of the highlights. I did two different edits on the image seen below and then merged them together using an overlay blend in photoshop to create the final image.

I had set a goal to see more sunrises that I do regularly for the remainder of 2016. This one is from Monmouth Beach, NJ just sitting on the sea wall watching the sky light up for 30 minutes.

Finally Got My Sunset

Shot:
I frequently visit the Sea Bright/Monmouth area during the summer and rarely get to witness some of the amazing sunsets that my parents send me regularly. On my last trip I finally got my sunset view and what a sunset it was.

Let Down Long Exposure

Shot:
On Memorial Day, myself as well as a few others flocked to the Fort Lee Memorial Park to get the coveted shot of the bridge all lit up for the holiday. While I was getting situated waiting for the sun to set and the lights to come on I got this nice super long exposure of the bridge. It was shortly after the police came up and set, park is closed… leave. I was a disappointing feeling that I was not able to get the photo I long awaited for.
