have a query here guys, would you expect the histogram from your baseline shot (without the 10 stop) to be replicated more or less after you shoot with the filter in?? -?

Never thought about it before but I suppose it should although if you have white individual clouds in your non 10 stop shot and these are blurred away on your longer shot it may show a darker histogram

I would tend to agree with that...I don't expect them to be the same. Don't know that i have ever even thought about it to be honest!

Usually pretty close, but consider that your 10 stop filter might not be 10 stops (my lee big stopper is about 10 2/3 stops), also a colour cast will influence the RGB histogram - you can alter the in-camera while balance to mitigate this. In post, if you WB from the same area in both reference and long exposures, you should find them practically identical though as has been observed by xpfloyd, the longer exposure can influence shadow and highlight areas that are in motion.

Yes, I'm aware of this TC,i've measured mine and it is 10 2/3 as well. I'm just experiencing some strange exposures, i need to do some more tests and may post some results for opinions if I don't sort it out. ;-)a

I think the composition could be improved. The bridge in the BG is competing with the opera house for attention. It's difficult to balance a photo when you have two BG subjects vying for attention. I find for those type of images that it really helps to have a central and strong FG point of interest, giving a triangle with the point at the bottom center point of interest and the base the two BG subjects. This helps balance the two BG subjects in the frame and gives the eye a natural path between all three of the elements in the scene. Coincidentally, my last image in this thread is this type of composition:

You may find this video (external link) helpful, it is fantastic and has some very useful pointers for composing an image. Looking forward to seeing more of you photos :)


Really opened my eyes. Just wanted to say thanks for the awesome post!

Been a while, I'm getting back into shooting with a snap of my favourite location.

7D & EF-S 24/2.8 STM used

Two image stitched pano with MS ICE, welding glass filter used ~ 90s exposure.

Winter Pier

Thanks, apologies, force of habit with an export preset. 10% opacity and lower right hand corner would have been better! :lol:

Maybe yes haha.

I wonder how you edited this image. It has very smooth and calm tones.

Maybe from the welding glass? That seems to cast a mellow haze/OOF feel on things.
