These are great. I would have used a polarizer and on the second image produced something totally boring. Thanks for posting.

haha - thanks Adrian! Yeah, I'm far too lazy for polarizers, although I've been thinking about branching out in that direction.

I've been fascinated recently with the way that my sunglasses change and intensify the colors in the world, and at one point was so enamored with the difference that I took a couple shots through them. It didn't work out so well, because the glasses weren't very clean, but I'll definitely look into it the next time I'm in a camera store.

If you want circular ie. screw on filters Hoya cheap range are fine. You have to be shooting with the sun at about 90 degrees so not too good with wide angle lenses. If you go the slot in sort Cokin are the cheapest you can get graduated filters as well. Go for two stop and three stop. also a three stop neutral grey is good for creating longer exposures. As I say your image would have been boring through a polarizer as it cuts out the reflections.

Forgot not much point in warm up and most of the hundred others in their range as most effects can be created quickly in Photoshop or whatever. P size is what you want they just about cope with a 72mm front element.

About This Blog

This is my first blog attempt. It hasn't been kept up over the last year, for some reason being pregnant really ate into my creativity, and I picked up the camera very rarely. I am thinking about starting it up again, but am not sure what direction to take it in.
