Photographer's Note

Photo taken on the same evening as my, ***CALMNESS*** photo. Same subject, same conditions, same shooting "problems". I hope that you wouldn't mind if I copied that "old" note:

"On my way to Preveza, I decided to make a short deviation, and visit the beautiful island of Lefkada, for the first time in my life, even if it was only for a couple of hours.

After crossing the bridge that connects the island with the mainland of Greece, to the left someone can see a huge marina for big yaghts, but what really caught my eye was a small "canal" for smaller boats on the right of the bridge.

The problem with this shot, was that there was a soft wind blowing, that caused a slight movement of the boat, so I couldn't use very long shutter speed. I had to try something diferent than my usual settings for this kind of photo, and used a wide aperture (f/5.6) and a high ISO number (800). Even so, the shutter speed was 2 seconds. The boat was slightly moving from left to right and vice versa. I noticed that when the boat reached the "peak" of its movement f.e. from left to right and before starting to move from right to left, it remained practically still for a moment. That's when I pushed the button."
