'The Med' at Castellammare del Golfo

'The Med' at Castellammare del Golfo

I recently bought a book of images in monochrome called 'Seascapes' by the Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. His images of the sea are in landscape format and monochrome. I decided to have a go at this style myself, but in colour and square format in order to avoid plagiarism. If you think that this looks easy you could not be more wrong. If you don't believe me then try it! If nothing else it will show you how badly your sensor needs a clean!! The 38 second exposure time was achieved using a combination of 10x ND and polarizing filters.
