Taken in the morning in Santa Margherita Ligure in the Italian Riviera.

Experimenting with long exposure panoramas. This one is three vertical image stitched manually in photoshop going horizontally. Each piece is a blend of three images, the long exposure (90 seconds) shot for the water/sky, a +1 exposure to bring out some shadow detail and a -1 ev exposure (non-long exposure) for the boats to bring out their highlight detail and get rid of motion blur. Overall there was 10 images used and with the D800 it resulted in a 12,000 x 7,500 pixel image so it definitely tested the limits of my Macbook Pro.

Long exposure achieved with a B+W 10 stop ND filter.
