Cropped Sky

By jammy_sam  
Just another from my first outing with the 10-20mm. Bit disappointed about the burn-out in the sky but i don't have a set of ND grads yet. Any pointers of what to buy would be a great help

All comments well received

Cheers
Sam

Quite a nice effect. I don't have ND grads yet either, so can't make a suggestion there.

The 10-20 is a pretty awesome lens, but requires 100mm filters, which cost a flippin fortune. The three makes I am aware of are Cokin, Lee and Hitech. The Lee are the best, but the most expensive. The Hitech are the middle ground and Cokin are the cheapest, but I believe they have been having problems with magenta casts so are a little hard to get hold of at the moment. You will need the wide angle filter holder that each of the manufacturers produce, this allows the holder to be reversed so that it doesn't show in the images, as it sits closer to the lens and therefore behind the field of view. You will also need to bear in mind which grads to get, hard or soft. I use the soft because they are the best of both worlds and becasue I can't afford a set of each!

Once you have a set of grads you'll see a massive difference in your shots, they really are a must for landscapes.

Hope this helps.

You could use Hdr technique in these situations Sam, three or more bracketed exposures would do the trick ,take a look at my latest image of York taken without filters . I still use filters as much as possible in these situations but until you decide when what and which way to go Hdr is a great alternative, HTH,
