A different take of the very same scene/framing as “The Timeless Time” – my long exposure techniques involve a “test photo” step at a very high ISO to check if the exposure is correct. With the very dark 10-stop filters, exposures tend to vary a bit. Sometimes, these test photos have a very different quality, and this is one such example – the high ISO gives it a very grainy and rough appearance, quite different from the smooth “The Timeless Time” 16 minute exposure of the very same scene.
