I can't tell if this ship is close to drowning or if this ship is completely fine
How is the ship clear wouldn't it normally smear as it moves?
Incredibly done looks majestic
Yeah long exposure wouldn't allow for a clear reflection if there were even the tiniest bit of waves.
Long exposure is cool, but this is heavily photoshopped as well. The reflection should be blurry and there should be a clear separation of water and sky if it was just long exposure. Also the resulting frames would have to be stabilized on the ship to get such a clear outline, which would disturb the moon and skyline.
The ship could be resting on the sea bed in low tide. I agree with the rest though.

Can we please have a bot that points out karma-bots, or would that get too meta and cause Reddit to shit itself?
It seems to have come out of a dream!
The moon in the back makes it all the much better
That's no moon
Edit: actually wait...I think it is a moon. That's totally my bad.
I call bullshit on this simply being a long exposure shot. There was obviously a tonne of editing but HOLY that's a beautiful shot and the fact that it was heavily edited takes nothing away from the insane talent on display here.
Just to be clear: even a 10 second long exposure would blur the crap out of the ship, the reflection, and the moon. It was probably a long exposure of the water and sky and then several shots of the moon, reflection, and ship stitched together. Honestly, phenomenal job this is gorgeous!
Right? Like, of all the things to put in the title, that didn't have the biggest impact on the finished shot. I guess 'I did a ton of editing in photoshop' doesn't have the same ring to it
This gives me big Treasure Planet vibes
More like Pirates or the Caribbean: At World’s End
Such an amazing photo! 👏🏿👏🏿
Looks about to start an adventure, or the poster of a really cool movie!
Dumb question. What is long exposure?
Cameras work by opening a shutter between an image sensor and the outside world. Exposure is how long that shutter stays open, which lets the image continue being captured, kind of like taking a short video and mashing all of the frames into one image. This is how you'd get pictures with streaking lights, like those pictures of traffic you might have seen.
I'm not a photographer so I'm sure someone can come in and explain better, but that's the gist of it.
I don’t understand how the reflection of the moon is 1)so sharp 2)in FRONT of the boat?!
Wouldn’t the boat be in the LOS of that spot where the moon is reflected? Is it just me or is something off here?
Two times now my dad has said "urethral" in stead of ethereal in conversation and its fucking HILARIOUS.
This is taken in still waters otherwise the ship would be blurry from movement and the water would look like fog. It’s probably a composite image anyway because the true art of photography is pretty much dead.
Actually this is a photoshop technique off mirror I do with different items often what you are thinking is water is actually mirrored sky. Not saying that long exposure can’t have a similar effect. But the placement is too precise to be so.
This is fake. How tf is the reflection so clear?
It also looks like a post that I’ve seen on here about 17.6 million times.
I call BS, surely if there was a long exposure the MOVING ship would be all blurry?
Why does everyone in this thread seem to think the boat is moving? Of course it's still. It's run aground.
"Up is down". Any POC fans?
no it does not... it would make the water look silk but the boat would not be sharp as it is now.
the reason the reflection is clear is because there was no wind at all and the water acted like a mirror.
Is that how they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean
Looks like the ship just acquired the Soul Stone
Great...it must have thrown its captain overboard
I just found out that iPhone has a couple neat features like this for “Live” photos, it’s pretty fun, it can make gif type loops too
Man. How do cameras work? Thats insane.
The open a hole to let light in. The light hits either film covered in light sensitive particles, or a digital sensor covered in light sensitive pixels. Volia magic
Beautiful Sweaters, too
Wow That is Sick
Feels like something out of inception!
i'm in awe of people who know how to use their camera and take stunning shots. mine come out all potato-y.
Baby? That was stunning
I saw a tool in photoshop that someone used to edit out all the people in front of a ruin at a heavy tourist place by taking a lot of pictures and doing an automatic comparative edit. I wonder if something like that would have a similar effect in this scene.
Waitaminute that's Ben Gardner's boat!
Whats that monkey doing climbing up the front? 🐒
I need more
This is a stunning piece of photography. Wow ....
I might be wrong but doesn’t this highlight the equilibrium of the waves of the ocean? Like they appear smooth because over time the waves move just as much up as they do down.
The waves of the ocean appear chaotic but really in the big picture they are in perfect equilibrium.
No way! This is actually my wallpaper
Love this shot! Reminds me of foggy mornings driving over the Gandy Bridge to St. Pete. You can see 30 yards of road infront of you that disappear into a cloud.
Why does the boat look distressed and abandoned?
This is in Canada right? I feel like i saw this same boat on the way to Niagara Falls a couple years ago.
Was this before or after that Syrian sailor was released by Egypt?
You should post this on r/pics if you haven’t already this is beautiful!!!
2nd star to the right and straight on til' morning.
This picture makes me uncomfortable. There’s just something when an object is placed in such empty yet realistic backround .
What I don’t get it how the reflection is so clear?
Great now make into an NFT
This is how Ethereum is mined
Getting treasure planet vibes
I wouldn’t say this was long exposure, just very calm water. I’ve been in the middle of the Atlantic and it has been like glass. Very eerie.
There was a thread on ask Reddit about the scariest things that sailors experienced out in the sea and many of them listed phenomenon that they described exactly like that on the photo
No this isn’t.
For some reason this reminds me of Worlds end in Pirates of the Caribbean.
No. OP is wrong
It's like both of them before they die
Uh... a long exposure wouldn't get rid of the waves, it would compound them into one big fuzzy mess. The picture is pretty, but your description is full of shit.
I read urethral
Alright I’m gonna need one of these without the boat
Day after day, day after day, we stuck...
Why does it look like it’s about to capsize though?
This ship’s name is “Eileen”
I call bs
There must be a world out there that is like this permanently.
r/confusingperspective it looks like that ship is sinking
It’s pretty but makes me uncomfortable
I saw this last year, same exact title
This is oddly satisfying indeed looking like something out of a dream.
Just a fun little fact, that's how those awesome waterfall shots are created. You definitely need a stable tripod or surface, and it's pretty difficult to do in direct sunlight, but in shade or close to evening when you can use a longer exposure time is how you can get that slow motion effect where it looks like a paintbrush painting downwards.
You know why it works with waterfalls tho right? And this isn’t smoothing water the same natural way.

I think I saw this photo not too long ago. If I remember correctly, that poster said it was edited.
This is so beautiful :)
Gives me Half Life 2 vibes
That's super awesome
Wow, that’s beautiful
What did it cost?
Did you take this picture? Because it doesn’t look like extended exposure to me...
i refuse to believe this is a photo. it’s a combo of photoshop and blender
It’s a CGI.
Beautiful picture but omg it makes me feel super uncomfortable.
r/exposureporn is a sub for photos. There’s a lot of this “look at this amazing shot I took” (and HDRed and stitched together and filtered the hell out of).
It’s okaaaay when admitted but BS taking credit for amazing photo rather than essentially cgi imagery. There’s a difference.
This photo hurts my brain
I WANT THE PHOTO IN FULL RES I WANT A BACKGROUND
Long exposure doesn't explain the shadow unless the waves were minimal to begin with.
For those little things that are inexplicably satisfying.
