The peeking lion by prperold The peeking lion by prperold
The mountain in the background is called "Lion's Head". It's the same head as in this shot:
Descending Lion's Head
and the the following two shots were shot from atop it:
Camps Bay
The Mother City

Single 126 second exposure shot with a 10 stop ND filter. Normal, under-exposed and over-exposed versions of the sam raw file were converted and then blended together to control the dynamic range. I used Tony Kuyper luminosity masks to control contrast.

I really hope I didn't overdo the processing.

het geweet jy sal gaan skiet toe ek daai wolke check :) Ek was ongelukkig oppad terug van die naweek.

Awesome lig, maar nes met my bootjies is daar geen vloei van die midground na lions head nie. Ek like die leading line links onder wat Lions head counter.

Ek glo ek gaan die naweek tyd kry vir 'n night shoot by twk. Hoe lyk jou schedule?

Janee, jy is reg oor die comp. Die location het gesuck. Daar is 'n gebou weggesteek agter amper elke rots :) So dit was of hierdie of sif geboue. Maar ja, dis net verskonings, ek moes eintlik net by 'n beter spot gewees het :)

Ek is ongelukkig die naweek nogals besig. Al aand wat ek miskien vir so 'n shoot sal kan gaan is Vrydagaand. Dit sal nogals cool wees though.

ek is langebaan toe genooi so nou het ek alweer nie tyd nie! ek is altyd oop in die weke as jy kans sien vir 'n laat aand...7h donker, 8h donker genoeg vir sterre...skiet 2 ure, 11h tuis?

Wolklose aande gaan nou begin skaars raak....

Not at all, the processing is spot on. Great contrast, and nice subtle tones!
