PhotoStream #001 : Seaham Beach, England

I live a short distance from a small town in the North-East of England called Seaham.  At the moment it is being completely revamped and is hard to get down to the docklands that were once a haven for photographers like me.

A couple of weeks ago myself and a few friends went down to the beach area of Seaham and experimented with using Neutral-Density Filters and Long Exposures and below is a small collection of the result.

It has been a while since I had done an photographs using Neutral-Density Filters and only own a couple.  An ND-4 and ND-8 Filter, and they only fit on the oldest of lenses in my bag (EF28-80mm – f/3.5-5.6), the small lens that came with the camera when I purchased it, and because the quality isn’t all that great from this lens it had not been used for some time, and as a result, the photographs required a significant amount of editing to remove all the blemishes, thank goodness for Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Well that is enough of me rambling on, here are the photographs for you to enjoy, along with a small amount of information from each of the pictures.
