Stunning Tom - such an interesting structure captured so well. I am only just getting into Low Light Photography - it's interesting to learn how others approach dual exposures. Would you mind explaining your choice of aperture settings? Would I be right in saying F22 to capture the background, and F8 to expose the pier...? Cheers, Matt.

You've done this scene before and I liked it then too. It's like Monet's bridge. no matter how many times yo go back to it, it's always different than all of the times before. Always a treat to visit your pages.
