Had to make this one a little smaller... maxed out the file size. One minute exposure, which wasn't long enough so it took more editing. Which in turn added considerable noise, so I went with some film grain. I like the way it looks :)

This one shows some nicer movement in the clouds too. Perhaps time to wander a little further than the deck this time ;)

This is really cool stuff! I live really close to Harbor Freight and they usually carry welding supplies - I will have to go have a look!

I do have a question that I looked for but may have missed - could you not set a custom white balance by taking a photo after you have the glass strapped to the lense of a white "thing"?? If this would work, it would save a ton of time trying to fix the odd color casts.

Yes, this was mentioned a while back actually. It's a good idea too as then It doesn't take long to apply to all images.

Hope to see your efforts soon :)

I'll wander farther than the deck sometime. On nice days I am usually working, as I am working for a lawn and property maintenance company right now. I had other things begging for my attention and I was BBQing hamburgers, so I didn't want the camera too far away. Maybe this weekend will offer up something interesting :)

Really nice! Nice to have a comparitive shot with a normal view too. You can really see just how cool an effect this is :)

The sky? Traffic? Water? Anything that moves really. The beauty is that it makes a seemingly normal scene into something new, interesting and different. Try it.

I got a #10 at Harbor Freight for under $2, they were marked $4 on clearance. Taking it out of the sleeve, I noticed that it appeared clean and had polished edges. Now to block out some time to play around!

Anybody ever though of using two polarising filters and 'maxing' them against each other?
Works for me!

What about getting simple polarizing film (external link), cutting it to fit in empty filter rings (or step-up rings, etc. that you have lying around). Then as you screw the outermost filter on or off it would give you a variable (reasonably neutral) density filter. Edmund will sell material with a higher quality than most welding stores (I would assume ;) ), but it probably isn't super high-end Polaroid sheet either.

Edit: Quick calculations would show it to give a variable range from 2-11 stops based on provided specs.

This is my effort for today I've been out with the welding glass again I know the composition is not great as I change the focal length a bit to much once the glass like the numpty I am. Anyway the main thing is does the processing work?
