Did they use a Filter to darken do you think? Or maybe It was pretty dark in the photo, darker than it appears

If the time taken was correct (8.04am) then it is likely that a filter was used. On the other hand, the time may be wrong and it may simply have been taken when it was quite dark and the exposure length has caused the lighter image.

Pretty sure this would involve a Big Stopper or something similar.

Given the exposure parameters (ISO 100, and 25sec's) I suspect that some type of ND (in addition to ND grads) has been used. This might of been a 10 stop filter or a variable ND.

With a ten stopper, you would be looking at an unfiltered speed of 1/40th of a second. Seems unlikely you would get that fast in early morning light at f16. I'd guess somewhere between 2 and 4 stop ND.

Thanks for the answer. Such a great effect here in this picture! wow. I didn't realise there was such a thing as a 10 stop ND!

Well, there you go.

Stick around and you'll learn a lot.

I use a 13-stop ND all the time but don't boast about it because the Lee aficionados get upset when they have spent £30 for a filter and mine only cost a fraction of that.

Go with whatever floats your boat.

As Derek says drop Jeanie a pm.

But my guess is a "Big Stopper" in combination with a 2 or 3 stop ND grad.

The filters don't darken as such but control the length of exposure (nd) and balance brightness(grads) between sky and land.

Hi, slow to answer as no internet at the moment and using my phone.

I used a 1.2 ND filter and a couple of ND grads..it was sunrise too minus the sun (!) So the light was low which gave some natural assistance.
