Hi all,

Here's a photo that I was happy with, taken at Buttermilk Falls State Park in Ithaca NY. I had a good day, but using a ND filter and polarizer stacked, my viewfinder was really dark and I missed focus alot using my 18-55 IS. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks and enjoy.

Nice shot. Only suggestions I can give about trying to focus with the filters attatched is try setting up your shot, go ahead and get ready to take the shot then turn off autofocus then attatch your filters. I know it can be hard to get the filters on after you're already set up to take the shot but sometimes it might be the only way.

Thanks. I didn't want to keep taking the filters on and off because they are a pain, but I guess I might have to end up doing that next time if it helps my AF accuracy.

Yeah I bought a Hoya 9 stop ND filter a while back and this is the biggest reason I've hardly used it, you can hardly see through it and it's a pain to take on and off. Hopefully I'll be able to afford the Singh-Ray Vari-Nduo one day :D
