Cradle Mountains & Dove Lake by bobesh

Cradle Mountains & Dove Lake, Tasmania, Australia.

My main camera was on a slider doing time lapse so I had to use my backup (Nikon D7200 + Tokina 11-16mm) to take this shot. I used ND400 filter + Soft Grad 0.6 and had to shoot at 16mm because any wider would result in a lot of vignetting. With the extra Soft Grad filter I was still getting vignetting in top part of the photo but I just framed it with more sky that I knew I’ll eventually crop out anyway for the final 16:9 aspect ratio. To maximize the exposure time to get a mirror like effect I had to shoot at f/22 hence the photo is not really sharp.
