The small town of Donaghadee on the eastern shores of the Ards Peninsula is best known for its Lighthouse and Harbour.
Due to the popularity of this harbour and lighthouse with tourists it was impossible to take a conventional shot without having at least one person present so I set up the tripod as close to the ground as could and used my 10 stop ND filter to get a shutter speed of 60 seconds so that anyone walking about would simply disappear.

the need led you to invention and to a very appealing composition. I wonder if there are any passers by merged in this view:) I like very much the juxtaposition and balance of the two main focal points and how your point of view has brought us close to the lovely textures of the harbour. I also love how the shadows have maintained their quality and the warm tones reflect the mood of the hour. The tonal graduation in the sky is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
