A continuation of photos linked to blog posts. Thanks for all the feedback on the IR one.

I've just taken delivery of a LEE big stopper, nd thought I would compare back to back with the HiTech

This was using the LEE big stopper, but with a much longer exposure, it would have been difficult to do a fair camparison with a ver long exposure (timing and changing light)

TBH I used this to get some interest back - I've got little interest at them moment in my photography - hopefully this will return soon

Hello Nick,

your image is simply inspiring!

Simple question. I went on your link. To my mind, your original image is spot on in my opinion. So why the need for a filter, when your original shot does the job?

Nice use of the Big Stopper Nick,pretty soft tones in the water & sky.
I just think that little stone wall ( well I think it's a wall) could do with lifting a tad,there seems to be plenty of light on it,especially on the top & I reckon a wee selective levels/curves adjustment would really make it sing.Just seems a bit flat from where I am sitting.

Thanks Janet, - yes it is a wall that's submerged most of the year, and the sides are so dark I couldn't bring out any more detail (I've lifted it a lot as it is). The other side of the wall was a much better composition, but that was darker still. If I were to go back I would would take a series of images and use exposure blending, I would probably need 2-3 stops more to bring it out.

Still it's only 2 miles away so plenty of opportunities to go back.(btw marked as constructive).

I think that should make you want to get out more Nick, it's a great image.
I have the lee big stopper too and it seems in bright light i am doing a 300 sec exposure on f22 iso 100 on my 5d mark ii.
They work well and it shows in your image.

Keep them coming Nick i enjoy seeing your images.

Ian.
