My bridge

The Arrábida bridge, Porto, Portugal, built in 1963, is a splendid example of the modern architecture.

A story behind: This is another thing that I am recently very interested in: slow shutter speed - long exposure photos. 
The fast moving clouds on the slow shutter speed of 48 seconds make an image more dynamic.

Nikon D700. Nikkor 16-35 mm. Polarizer. 10 ND-Stop.


Shutter speed:
48 sec

Exposure bias:
+0,3 EV

Focal Length: 17 mm

ISO: 50

Place taken: Porto, Portugal.

never thought to use a slow shutter on clouds - i'm going to try it some day!

also, can i ask you to clarify your suggestion of getting a polarizer? i looked it up and all it said was it makes your images brighter - i thought those particular images were pretty bright. i appreciate your input!

@Mina: A good polarizer ( or circular polarizing filter ) is a must. It is not an expensive piece of photo equipment but matters.
In general what it does is during the bright light ( middle of the day, southern countries )it softens the light and gets the sky more deep blue not pale blue. Remember: the most visible effect happens when shooting 90 º to the sun.
