Petersfield Lake

Petersfield Boating Lake Hampshire

Long exposure at Petersfield Lake

I stopped off at Petersfield Lake on the way to work this week to grab this photo that I’ve been planning to take for a while.

The toughest part of getting this image was finding a 30 second slot that didn’t have any ducks or geese swimming about in the foreground or walking up and down the jetty! And plenty of work in Photoshop afterwards to remove vast piles of goose poo from the boardwalk 🙂

Here’s the original image below with the final shot at the top of this post.

You’ll see I’ve had to remove some of the lens distortion from the picture but the greatest amount of work in Photoshop has been tidying up the boardwalk to remove all of the poo! The colour cast has also been improved a little but the overall the photo is pretty much as it came out of the can.

Thanks for viewing.

Nikon d7100 on the tripod for 30 seconds at f11, ISO 100 with my lovely 10–24mm Nikkor lens at 10mm.
