A fantastic piece of handiwork. Looks quite heavy though, does it stay on the camera ok?

Not heavy at all, it's aluminum, it weighs about the same as the glass, plus the camera will always be on a tripod when shooting. It screws onto the lens via the filter.

Ahh I see, ok, it looks deceivingly heavy.

Tenby Harbour - West Wales, UK

Three exposures with the welding glass, HDR combined and most of the colour cast removed in LR4, the colour cast gives it an old film feel I think.

I was going to do this same thing but we had storms moving through by us at the time this was supposed to be happening. Thanks for sharing!

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Ok...so photographed the Transit of Venus as well. I used my 50d since it had a cropped sensor. With my 70-200 mm lens on it, as well as a 2X convertor. My exposure was f/11, 1/100, ISO 160. Manual focus with a shutter release. I also used my DIY solar filter. Which consisted of a UV filter and a replacement #12 welding glass. I used a hot glue gun to attach the welding glass to the UV filter.

I used my 70-200mm on my 7d and then cropped to get the result you see!

Thanks for all the comments.

Jay, I see your shot is upside down! Must be in the Northern Hemisphere :-)
