Pfeiffer Beach by Moonlight

Pfeiffer Beach by Moonlight View this image larger.
This is a two minute exposure by bright moonlight diffused through a layer of clouds taken at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, California. For this image I concentrated on the reflections in the pond, and contrast between wet and dry sand, rather than the famous rock tunnel.

I shot the photo at the end of a long night with some members of my Digital Black & White workshop at the Center for Photographic Art. Interested in my workshops? Subscribe to my email list to be kept current, or join the Photography with Harold Davis Meetup.

Exposure data: 24mm, 2 minutes at f/4 and ISO 320, tripod mounted; multi-RAW processed, and converted to monochromatic using Photoshop B&W Adjustment layers and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.
