Two versions of a sunrise at Hollow Rock
Here are two different versions of the same photographic composition. I used very different shutter speeds on these two photos to show how much of a difference your choice of shutter speed can make in how a photo appears. Both photos were taken with the aid of a 6-stop neutral density filter and a 2-stop reverse graduated neutral density filter. For the photo above, a 15 second exposure was used at f/16 and ISO 200. For the photo below, a .4 second exposure was used at f/8 and ISO 1600. I like both versions and can't decide which one I like more, which is why I am posting both. Plus, it's a good example of how much the choice of shutter speed can affect the look of a photo.
