Went to the beach today to test this filter out on some waves along the fishing pier. All I found when I got there was calm seas. The waves were only about 1 to 3 feet with 10 to 20 second intervals. I should also have gone down earlier in the morning rather than around noon when the sun was so high and bright.
...

That would be a great location earlier or later in the day :)

As far as natural lighting would be concerned earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon would be better. It would also had been better if the water was rougher.
This is a Southeast facing beach and the prevailing winds were from the Northwest.
There's always another day!

Bryan - those are really sweet shots! What were your settings, if I may ask. There seems to be no cloud movement yet the water is like glass...

The new pics are Great! Love to see them and am hoping to be able to get out again soon with mine.

Reposting this for those of you looking to make a holder from wood - I posted this sometime back in thread. Hope it gives some a few (minimal) ideas. I just hacked this up quickly in about half an hour.

The ring is a Cokin adapter ring. On the inside of the unit, you see on the "open" image, a bit of a circle behind the filter - this was because I initially goofed and turned the ring recess down on the wrong side :) - the recess simply gives the adapter ring something to sit in and be stable.

I got a timer now. Today we had perfect clouds here but I had absolutely no time. I quickly shot this over lunch. It is just out of my back yard. It is cropped and you can tell because of the vignetting at the top of the photo. I cant wait to have some good conditions over the weekend, or maybe I will head to the beach...

...also, whoever said it about the sensor is right...this process sure does bring out the specs.

Yes - it really works quite well. I screw it onto the lens just as you would a normal filter. I have not (yet) added a hinge for the side that opens, right now, it is just a bit of tape, but it should soon have a latch and proper hinge. I may build a new one just to improve the dimensions a bit.

It eliminates totally any spurious light, avoids entirely the need to take care that the filter plate will not fall out (the fit is tight so even if the "door" falls open, the filter does not easily slide out) and stores quite well in a plastic sandwich zip-loc bag :-)

I would like to say I would be happy to make one for anyone that would like one - but I can't make any guarantees. If you would like for me to give it a shot though, I would be happy to put a few on the stack, as it were. I have LOTS of scrap wood I would love to be rid of, and it does not take long to make. If you would like a recess for the lens adapter ring, I would just need to know exactly how deep and what diameter to make it.

Other than that, it is just scrap wood and shipping.

70 sec exposure during overcast daylight.
nephew in the frame ~30 secs.
$6 #20 Lincoln welding helmet glass.
Yes, pool is dirty, but notice the kinda neat movement of the leafs in the pool.
Weather here is not good for clouds, bummer.

buggz - that's GREAT! Love the leaf motion for sure. There's something about the "clarity" of the ghost of the Nephew that is just fascinating as well. Did the welding glass enhance the green in the pool at all? It looks maybe slightly more than "natural"
