Hi all! Today I finally got the chance to test my Cokin X filters properly at sunset in Pellinge (an islet outside Porvoo in Finland). This fluffy sunset coloured cloud was really breathtaking as it drifted away. Vignetting added to this photo.

The results so far was really impressive, hence the best 300 I have spent on my camera gear.

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

The filters are doing their job well. There is some vignetting as you mentioned and a bluish cast, but overall it looks great.
