If you’ve been to Stockholm, Sweden you’ve probably seen their amazing subway stations. They are a very popular tourist attraction and it can by quite busy during the day. If you go off-peak hours many of them are virtually empty. Be warned, tripods are not allowed for photography so you’ll need to be creative.
I used a mini-tripod set up on an ancient stone wall to get this long-exposure shot of La Baia del Silenzio (The Bay of Silence) at sunset.

More long exposure experimentation at Vancouver City Hall. It was very windy and I wasn’t sure if my tripod would remain steady with a 406 second exposure. I used 19 stops of neutral density and some post in Lightroom to achieve this result.

I’m getting a little behind in posting my weekly photos, but rest assured, I’m still creating one each week. This past week was my first chance to test my new Formatt-Hitec 100mm filters (an attempt to standardize my filters across different lenses). I shot this one at one of my favourite spots to capture the late afternoon light and the city skyline.
Technical notes: 10 stop ND + 3 stop soft edge grad ND, 30 second exposure, processed entirely in On1 2018 software. Anamorphic crop (2.39:1)
