I am very excited about getting an honorable mention in the Advanced - Digital category at the October monthly Northern Virginia Photographic Society (NVPS) competition. The competition's theme was "Bridges".
The NVPS is a great club for anyone with a passion for photography and the monthly photography competitions are open to all members!
Since I was quite far away from the subject, I was able to choose a medium aperture value and keep everything sharp. I wanted to maintain some of the texture of the water so I increased the ISO so that I could decrease the length of exposure to 2 seconds... If I wanted the water to be more smooth, I would have decreased the ISO and increased the length of exposure...
Please let me know if you have any questions!
