Nice !

Was there an ND filter involved here ? (Or just low light)

Yep
Hoya NDX400. Would like to get a lee big stopper though (as well as some lee nd grads)


Yes, I would like these as well but the cost .....

Well lets just say I have spent enough over teh last 12 months and am not diving into anything new yet!

Like the desaturated look of this one.

and for some reason this is the favourite of this and #6.

notes above in the "quote", although I like all of them as a group they are all a bit 'samey'. Perhaps a bit more colour (or emphasis on orange) in 3, 4, 5 & 7?

Yeah sorry for the similarities, I was testing out different exposures.

Yeah, but there's a nice feel about them...like a certain "look". Once you can nail down a style that is recognisable, then all you need to do is find interesting subjects and intersting light to capture them in. That's a big part of getting known I think...

The third one is by far the best of the lot. The light, and therefore the colour and contrast, are way better. -X

I think #2 is the best...nice colours and the wide aspect suits the subject. #5 seems to be balanced too far into the yellow. Did you make any WB adjustments or is that as shot? Also there is something about #6 that I don't like...not exactly sure what it is. The composition and subject is fine, but there seems to be a coma (light cast, or blur) over the central area of the image, making the rocks look defocussed. Sort of gives the effect of a low quality lens...which I know is not so as your other shots are sharp and clear. Would it be shake during a long time exposure? I think the lighting is pretty harsh on that shot too...lot of blacks and lot of highlights but not a lot of mids...?

Hey Antraman.
It was just hitting sunset on the 2nd one which is why it so yellow.

For the 5th one. Others have mentioned that as well. I didn't notice until i zoomed in a bit. I think it may be from hand holding the filter in front of it and possibly bumping the camera.
