Sunrise Light over Beacon Hill and Charles River with Downtown Boston Skyline
The addition of the Millennium Tower really pulls this angle together. I’ve also been really enjoying telephoto work lately. I feel more like a master of the scene really, and the result always ends up being unique.
What’s really made my new telephoto work possible are the tight blend lines on the new LEE Filters “Very Hard” graduated filters. At telephoto lengths having a tighter blend line is crucial for accurate positioning. I did something interesting with the filters to take this image. I reversed one of the two graduated filters to darken the water from the bottom up, both grads blending to clear in the center. The filters I used for this 6 minute exposure are listed below.
LEE Filters Big Stopper (10-stops)
LEE Filters Very-Hard 1.2 GND (4-stops, from top down)
LEE Filters Very-Hard 0.9 GND (3-stops, from bottom up)
