Watchers Over the Bay by Matt Conti

September 2020 - Watchers Over the Bay

About the Image(s)

I took this photo on a late Summer night at Squantum Point in Quincy, Mass. in a marsh overlooking the bay of the nearby town. Someone had already "built" these rock formations on the edge of the marsh that looked like they were "watchers" over the bay. They are almost silhouetted, but I tried to emphasize a flag sticking out. In addition, I was drawn to the reflecting lights on the water which were smoothed by the long exposure.

3 images 30 sec to 60 sec
F 8.0
ISO 100

I used 3 images and blended the foreground, water and background in Photoshop for the various exposures.

What a great image Matt. Very well constructed at the time of capture and very well processed to give the final image.   Posted: 09/20/2020 03:35:38
