Stopped @ Perch

By MrsS    
Hi All Smile

Been helping out at school tonight with car parking for the football match, hence the late posting Smile

I know you've seen the Boss's shot from here, but this is my take on it using my VERY own Lee Big Stopper!

Never had a go before (except with TSB's in Norfolk very briefly) so I did have lots of fun.

I like the way the water around the lighthouse almost looks like sand Smile

Thanks for calling in - off to watch Richard Hammond's new programme now Smile

Cheers!

BTW - To answer Michael (and anyone else who was wondering) this was a 47 sec exposure, and the Lee stopper has a lovely cushiony edge to stop any light ingress Smile

Beautiful shot Fran, I will be taking delivery of one of these babies soon!

What was the exposure time on this and did you find that the Lee let any light in with it fitting into the holder?
