Lee has a difficult time in keeping up with demand bcoz' they have a high quality of standard. Here's an article of why Lee has such a hard time in keeping up with demand.

That helps thank you. Had no idea they were hand made. I assumed this was all an automated process.

First attempt with the Big Stopper. I'm unable to accurately edit it until I'm back home (on vacation and using my MBP) but I hope it doesn't look too far off. :)

The Monterey area is great for food, shopping, golf, photography,...... Great place. Here's one from Uvas Meadows outside of San Jose, CA. Once again, sorry if the processing isn't all there. I usually don't edit with my MBP.

Beautiful examples, Benjamin & Bave (Bob). And Bob, that last one's a killer (Uvas Meadows). Really nice.

Here's my first attempt with it in north central PA (Trout Run area):

Also used a grad ND in the second slot (Lee filter holder) for the sky.

Haven't used mine much but heres one from the Lake District just after New Year. The sky wasn't up to much so I used the Big Stopper to add more detail and reflection into the shot. I then converted it to B&W and then toned it blue.

There was a few on eBay over the last couple of days. I've also just seen a Big Stopper go for £200 on eBay!!!! Wish I'd bough half a dozen now! Lol.....

I got the WA adapter and most of my filters save the big stopper from Studio Kit Direct in the UK. They've been great to deal with and ship next day

You should check Ebay. :) Sometimes you might get lucky.
