- Description: My first ever long exposure shot. The day we arrived at Key West, I kept scouting for areas to shoot early morning. We drove from Tampa with twin daughters and they were 6 months old that time. I hardly had anytime looking for a suitable place to shoot from. I woke up early in the morning to catch the sunrise and headed toards the beach. I was not sure which would be a good spot or where the sun would come out from. I just parked my car and headed towards the beach where I found these palm trees. I just set up the tripod with the palm trees in silhouette and hoped the shot would come out good. I was nervous, curious and anxious as this was my first ever long exposure shot. In the end , I think it turned out pretty good, though I had to crop a little bit. I did not even know any post-processing skills that time, so pretty much SOOC shot. I did use the software that came with Nikon that time to enhance the sky a little bit.
- Gear: Nikon D5000,18-55mm lens
