Long exposure subjects vary as you travel the Texas City Dike in Texas City, TX. There are a variety of structures available to apply long exposure techniques. Frequently though, you encounter birds looking for a perch. In this case, Pelicans had decided that my intended subjects looked good for hanging out.
Watching their antics was intriguing so I decided to include them in my images. The structures I had selected to shoot that evening would have been incredibly static if not for the Pelicans. In each case, the above images were long exposures using a 6 stop Firecrest ND filter and a 2 stop Firecrest ND soft grad. As some Pelicans left, others arrived. The beauty of long exposure is that you get the images above with what looks like to me, several fidgeting Pelicans. I thought it made for a cool image.
All images were shot using my Fuji X-T2 and XF 16-55mm lens at f/11 and ISO 200. Using a set Formatt-Hitech Firecrest ND filters and soft grads, exposures ranged from 107 seconds to 155 seconds. Processed in Lightroom and converted to black and white using Tonality CK.
