One night my friend and I were just bored and walked around taking photos at Newcastle Baths. I saw a very slow movement of textures in the clouds and thought it would make an awesome “smudge” on the sky effect as the clouds pass by. This exposure was close to 8 minutes.
I love the amount of clarity and detail you get from using a larger aperture number such as f.11 in this case. The white balance I adjusted manually to this deep marine blue as when I shot this it was from using a “cloudy white balance” which made the shot more orange.
