    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 very much Dean, yes it was an amazing sunset! :)

    Thank you very much indeed Jeff, glad you liked it! :)

    Thank you very much Jeff! :)

    :D Luckily it didn't! Thank you very much Pete!

    Thank you very much indeed, most kind! :)

    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.
