To get a nice shot you have to be there – just thinking about it does not deliver.
To get a nice shot you have to be there – AND have the right gear (in this case a tripod and long exposure ND filter).
To get a nice shot you have to be there – AND be able to spend extra time if needed (in this case there was no one on the wharf at first, then they were talking at the beginning and then in the middle and finally shifted to the end to meet a boat coming in).
To get a nice shot you have to be there –  WITH a bit of luck (my long exposure finished just before the boat arrived to pick them up).
To get a nice shot you have to be there – AND to have had some experience (by the time this shot was taken I had made several exposures at various lenths to arrive at the right one when it counted).

  1. I completely agree John

    At times I feel like I’m trying to improve my photography by reading things or watching countless Creative Live shows but I actually need to get out and do something.

    Then I need knowledge, gear and luck but first of all I have to get out and do something

  2. Well said John,how will we get those images unless we take the time it takes. It is not just practicing it is perfect practice that gets us the knowledge to get those nice images. Nice image.
