Hey Travis...this is exactly the thing that I'm experiencing with the Lee 10 stopper. It has a blue color cast when using it with the Nikon D600 (don't know if that makes a difference). I'm relatively new into this. The color cast can be corrected in post however.

The blue color cast is a lot easier to deal with in post for me...I also warm my WB in the field to try and compensate for it.

You pulled a lot more color out of that image than I would have thought was there...a bit over cooked for me, but it shows what you can do.

floyd, if you want no color cast or minimal, try haida. When I bought the lee big stopper, I wasnt satisfied with the color cast either, and I stumbled on an article regarding cast:

http://www.achim-sieger.de …itech-prostop-irnd-haida/ (external link)

so I decided to try it before my return period was up..... I did flare tests and sharpness tests, no way was lee beating haida, except for prices  :p

it's a no brainer, and it's definitely not my style to buy a bunch, try and return, I consider the cast unacceptable really. I have 10 stop variable ND with less color cast, however a sharpness penalty.

Out in the field I started doing this (see pic) with WB card. That would be my starting point then I "over-cook" the heck out of it....lol. I shoot images all in RAW.

Thanks Charlie...a 10 stop Haida is already on its way from Hong Kong. I will do an image comparison with the Lee when it arrives.

My rational side of my brain says I don't need a reverse ND grad, but then I see amazing stuff like this and the emotional side of my brain says I need one immediately!

It's a filter where the darkest part is across the center - where a sunset or sunrise would be. The bottom half is clear and the top half graduates from the darkest center to a less ND value at the top so you can balance the sunset / sunrise with both a foreground element and the sky.

Ahh, i could imagine this works better for sunsets etc than a normal grad ND. Thanks for the explanation, didnt know there exists something like this
