Really nice. Looks nice big but a tad of camera shake possibly as it's quite blurry?

Might be simply diffraction + IQ degradation from the glass.

Here's my first go at it. Clouds were not too interesting today so I used something that I knew would be moving fast :p

I first took a practice shot and then set that to my custom WB and that made the picture much easier to review in camera and I did no WB adjustments in post.

First attempt with a shade 8 filter, 2 minutes at f29, 16mm on Sigma 10-20, extremely windy day.

Great shot, the cloud and windmill movement really add to the shot

Maybe not the best subject to show off long exposure movement, but it looks great as a test shot, very sharp indeed
The optically quality of these welding glasses are very hit and miss.
I should know, I go thru at least one a week at work ;)

Soemtimes, they are so badly made, your view can be quite badly distorted
Beleive me its quite difficult to weld when you get a double image of the arc :confused:

Finally got round to adapting the Cokin P filter holder to take the welding glass

Take cheapo Cokin holder from ebay, and cut off both wings and the small protruding knobs top and bottom, cut carefully and try to get the surface a flat as possible

WARNING - be careful with any sharp knives
Maybe get an adult to help :rolleyes:

I didnt have any silicon to hand, but did have this left over from a small building project
QUOTED IMAGE
This stuff is supposed to stick anything to anything, but I wasnt too sure about the smooth glass surface
I decided to key it in a little with some sandpaper

First I covered the glass with masking take, placed the holder on and draw a template to find the extent of the clear viewing area
QUOTED IMAGE

Then with a sharp knife (mind fingers;) ), cut around the pen mark and roughen up the glass outside of this area, a good coating of the glue and press the holder firmly in place


Its currently drying with a heavy object on top to hold it flat
All being well its should just be a case of obtaining a few different adapter rings and the filter should be able to fit onto all of my lenses

When its dry, I shall post a few more pics of it in use
:D

this is a great idea. thanks for sharing.

FINALLY got some good glass today, after the horrible stuff I bought first.

While it has some trouble with the fine details, it should do well with wide angle photos up to 8x12

So what was different about them, just the peice bought, or the manufacturer?

If the manufacturer, maybe check more peices of glass to see if there's good consistency, then let us know ;)

Went to a different store and bought another brand - slightly more expensive ($9 vs. $5), but still wayyyyyyy cheaper than a Lee Big Stopper haha

thanks, anke and jabtas,

I think the welding glass needs a contrasty foreground for an interesting shot
I took photos with the glass on and without.
The shots of the beach with the glass on are not good at all

Oh I don't know, the movement effect on the water looks cool
