The Cornish Coast fast became one of my favourite destination, with its amazing rock formations and ever-changing skies. A 32-seconds exposure, taken at sunset at Holywell Bay with my Hasselblad X1D, Hasselblad XCD 30mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters

Lovely image. I am always curious about long exposures, so how did you arrive at 32 seconds?

Thank you WesternGuy, glad you liked it! :) About your question, if you mean technically, through the use of a ND filter; if you mean "why 32", to determine the length of my long exposures I decide according to the conditions, speed of the wind / cloud or water, depending on the subject matter, and so on. Here I thought that 32 seconds would give the clouds a pretty good movement effect, while retaining some shape in them. Hope this answers your question!

Best regards,

Vieri

Vieri, thanks for the explanation. It is just that 32 seconds seemed a bit strange to me. If it had been me, I would probably have chosen 30 or 35. Everyone is different, so did you try any other exposures? Just curious as I am here to learn.

Oh, I see what you mean :) The choice of 32 seconds is determined by the way the Hasselblad X1D meters: they go the "correct" doubling way, rather than the "rounding" doubling way, so to speak. So, after 1, 2, 4 and 8 seconds, you don't get 15, 30, 60 and so on like on most cameras, but instead they chose to go for 16, 32, 64, 128, and so on... ;) Incidentally, as you know to gain one stop of light you gotta double the time, so the difference between 30 and 32 seconds is effectively non influent (as from 32 to 35), so whoever way a camera manufacturer goes the result are pretty much the same, even though the Hasselblad way is "correct" and theoretically should result in more precise exposures.

Absolutely great work.

Thank you very much indeed! :)

Best regards,

Vieri

Vieri, thanks for the explanation - I understand now how you got to 32 seconds. Interesting "comment" on the way equipment works. :biggrin-93:
