This is an image of the Oriental Pearl Tower and Pudong Skyline in Shanghai from a few months before the pandemic. When staying in Shanghai, I chose a hotel a short walk from this location so that I could get there about an hour before sunrise to capture long exposures through blue hour to sunrise. To get as close to the water as possible, I used a Job Gorillapod (as seen below) and placed on the barrier along the water rather than a tripod. This particular image was at 16mm, f8, iso 50, 485 seconds with a breakthrough 10 stop filter.
As you can see, by the time the sun rose, there were few clouds to work with, so I went for a peaceful serene feel with edits and added the reflection in post. When editing, adjusting perspective was the most difficult to maintain a straight horizon while keeping straight buildings - especially the Oriental Pearl Tower. Any tips or feedback appreciated!
