Hi

Another from last Tuesday night. This one after the sun had gone, and the Cokin X-Pro filters contributed quite highly to the sky colour as I had doubled up with a X121L and a X121 on this shot. There does seem to be quite a cast with the combination of them and a 60D.

Thanks for looking, and your clicks and comments on my recent uploads.

Wonderful depth and atmosphere to this one Mark, with great detail in the rocks and texture in the water. I really like the way the filters have affected the colour of the sky too. Nice one Smile

Thanks folks, appreciate the comments. Yes Ant I was a lot closer to the lighthouse, but the tide came in that fast, we had to bail further back until I was near enough leaning against the fort.

Nice. I only live 25 mins away and I've never shot it. There's some irony there somewhere.

Hi Mark,

I had the same problem with the cast when using x-pro - annoying really given thier cost! Still it can be - and in this case is - effective.

A couple of additional things to be weary of:

1. The cast gets worse with longer shutter speeds
2. Beacuse the cast only effects the darker elements of the filter you can get an imbalance between the colour of the sky and any reflected surface in the FG. Again, this can be effective - its just that personally I'd like to control when this happens!

Regards,

Adam

Lovely image! Hope you weren't standing on the rocks in the fg. They look awfully slippery to me.

Thanks Sue, I was stood just behind them with the tripod perched precariously on top of them, and yes they are extremely slippery Smile
