I took this VAST photo of a fallen spruce tree over Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine, on October 1, 2014, 11:21 AM. Ice thawing in the spring every year has moved the log from its original location further up the pond. The wind was gusting to about 20mph at times, so I used a 10-stop neutral density filter to allow me to use a slower shutter speed to blur the trees and water, but still allow me to use a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field, or “bokehrama”. I focused on the middle of the tree in the pond and let everything else fade out of focus.

Camera settings: 200mm, f/4, ISO 100, 8 seconds.

Stitching data: 3 rows of 10 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Promote Control, B+W 10-stop ND filter, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned via AutoPano Giga, and blended in Photoshop.
