Behind The Image of the Boston Odyssey

Fan Pier is part of the Boston Harbor Walk which provides great views of the Boston skyline. On my recent visit to this photo hot spot I choose to capture a more initiate view of Boston. I there fore dissed the wide angle lens and equipped my camera with a 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens. The luxury Boston Harbor cruise ship Odyssey was welcoming passengers on board while getting ready for the sunset cruise. I zoomed in close to make this cruise ship the focus while the Boston Harbor Hotel with its arch and the rotunda provided the backdrop.

In this long exposure photography image the camera aperture was f/22 providing a 10 second shutter speed at ISO100. During post processing I removed unwanted dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the fine image of Boston.

Good light and happy photo making!
