Yes, and they are a bit cropped. They are taken from my balcony so I was able to be pretty close without scaring it away.

Nice shots! I've always wanted to try to take photos of running water, but haven't gotten around to doing so yet.
Did you use a ND filter for those?

I see. Well nice shots.

I used the XSi, 17-40L and the B+W ND110 for those shots.

On a cropped body you do lose some of the range. (Not too wide, not too long) However, being my first L lens, I'm very happy with the color reproduction, sharpness and overall image quality. It tends to be my go to lens for most of my photography needs.

I've been deciding between the ND 106 and 110, your thoughts? I haven't used either but have had the itch to experiment with longer exposure.

Testing my new 50mm 1.8 II lens with my awesome XSi :D


For a newbie like me this lens worth's every penny!

Yes, indeed. I want something wider than my Sigma 30mm, but I don't want to buy any more EF-S lenses. I haven't got any money to use on camera equipment though, so I'm not going to buy anything anytime soon ...

Hmmm, it's a tough one for me because I'm not very experienced with long exposures. It's just that every time I went out for landscape shooting and came across water, longer shutter speeds caused everything to over expose. The ND110 is not a middle ground type filter. It's an extreme and as a result cuts out 10 stops of light. Hence, depending on intended use, it could be great or suck.

I do wish I went with the Lee filters though. I hate the screwing and unscrewing part. My process for shooting with it goes as follows:

1) Compose the image without the filter.
2) Adjust focus, etc.
3) Switch the manual focus and screw the filter on so as not to mess the focus up.
4) Using one of the charts available online along with some trial and error, make changes to the settings and take the shot.

People do complain of color casts with certain filters, but I usually enjoy experimenting with the white balance to match the colors with what I remember it being when I was there.

I hear you. I use the 17-40 for landscapes, nature, urban primarily. But, I also use it for self portraits and what not. The money part I understand. At no point so far have I had the ability to save up for a 5D2 which I want, so when I got a good deal on the 17-40, I jumped on it.

Nice shots by the way.

silentsounds -- thanks for your view, I'll consider it in my decision.

Nobody Weird Like Me -- I love your Bleeding Heart flowers! They are my favorite. My take:

I was messing around with OCF today and have to share this cool bottle it's on my blog too. I showed the setup in the setup thread.
