The setting sun by the time I was shooting this little channel at dusk was at the back of the wharf and the sky was overcast, so the channel as well as the wharf were in the shadow. I used the Cokin gradual blue and gradual grey to bring down the contrast between the sky and the foreground and I set a slow shutter speed also in order to catch the fleeting movement of the water; that is why the water surface was a bit silky and the objects in the picture slightly blurred.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The lighting condition for the 'dusk' shot was bad, so the shot turned out to be unsatisfactory. As night set in and the spot lights underneath the bankrailingwere turned on, the mood of the scene changed. The spot lights were mainly from the left, so giving the wharf on the other side of the bank ample illumination, changing the texture and colour of the scene completely.
