That would be a good time.. I'm not sure what's stopping us!

I would wait till there's more green foliage. Spring perhaps?

Definitely.. I'll be gone 10th thru 18th.. in NC actually, but it's a trip I have planned with someone. Aren't you near the coast somewhere?

El Capitan at Sunset

Your image is stunning. I particularly appreciate that you chose to represent a range of tonal values that, though compressed by use of an ND grad, is what someone would imagine when standing there, with his or her "eye/brain" taking in the scene.

Would you mind telling what filter you used and try to describe where the "line" was placed in the frame? I can't for the life of me see it. And I have trouble trying to imagine how you kept the angled face of El Capitan uniformly lit, though held back, using a filter.

Thanks for posting such a nicely done shot and for any advice you would share.

Cal

Sande NRW - Germany

Canon 5D Mark II - Canon EF 24-70 F:2.8 L USM
Stacked ND8 and ND4 Graduated Neutral Grey filter (Cokin)

I have the P series and on my 17-40 there is vignetting - next week I shall order a new Cokin Z series or the Lee set (depends on my budget)

Hehe. :) Not sure yet. I'm heading on a trip to St. Lucia in April. This will be my determination of which one I like most. So far, both brands are excellent. I used to shoot Nikon but, they have totally improved their technology. The Canon's output OOC is definitely more saturated in color while the Nikon's output needs a bit of punch in color in post. Not a big deal really. I will be posting images from both cameras and I'll let everyone decide what everyone thinks. :)

I love the colors in the first image Martin. Both are definitely a good example of using GND filters. :)

Here's some pics as promised of my UWA kits. If you have any questions that need answered, please ask away. :)

Here's a pic of the Lee filter holder with the 4x4 CPL. Some people have never seen one up close. So, here's a pic of filter I've been always talking about. :)

Thanks for posting those pictures, I've been reading this thread for a while and just got a Lee filter holder and GNDs because of it. I've been trying to figure out if I can use a 4x4" square CPL with GNDs so time for my 1st post!

I think I've seen photos where you've used your 4x4 square CPL with GNDs? I assume you rotate it by 90° before placing it in the holder? Do you find that only being able to use it in 4 positions (0, 90, 180, 270°) limiting?

I think I'd rather use a 4x4" CPL than a 105mm and adaptor ring, to make sure I dont get vignetting at 10mm on my sigma 10-20mm (also it works out about half the cost!)

Your welcome and welcome to POTN! :) As far as placement with the CPL, I usually hand hold the CPL and turn it before I insert the filter. That way I can tell if the polarisation is at it's minimum/maximum. Most of the shots I posted with this filter is at it's default position as you see pictured in my setup. If I ever need to use an actual CPL, I use the screw on and hand hold a GND in front. You can use the 105mm with one slot to minimize vignetting but, I'm not sure of this setup since I don't own it. Anyways, the 4x4 hasn't failed me yet. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Enjoy your stay here! :)
