For this shot in Big Sur, CA I increased the density of my Singh-Ray Vari-ND to stretch the exposure time by an additional 3 stops -from 1/2 second at f22, to 4 seconds- which resulted in the soft, flowing surf. Adding my Singh-Ray Color Intensifier further enriched the sunset lighting and color of the ocean. I fired the Nikon D3X with a set of Pocket Wizard MultiMAX’s to make sure there was no vibration from manually pushing the shutter release button. PocketWizard’s make a great wireless cable release.
