I might have to get another bit of glass and try some more of these!

Inphoto, a couple of years ago I got a couple of pieces of glass and tinkered a little with it. I never got a good system for holding it on and eventually gave it up and went on to other things. Recently, I put together a holder using a generic 100mm square holder and some of those black spring-clips for holding thick stacks of paper together. So far the only thing that I've done with it is to take a shot of the sky to get a custom white balance to use in-camera and then turn around and shoot some broom straw in a pasture. Seems the in-camera white balance did pretty good. Your white balance looks pretty good, did you use a custom in-camera white balance or do it in post-processing? Both?

We don't have a lot of water features around here, but I hope to get some shots soon. I think ND filters come to shine when water is involved, especially moving water. You've given me more encouragement to get my filter contraption out and use it! Thanks for sharing your images!!!

Welding filter holder. I'm not sure where that purple tints coming from, though I wonder about the corner of that purple booklet. But, whatever, my haywire-and-bailing-string filter holder. ;-)a

Looks fine to me!
I get a green cast with the glass and correct in DPP, it does better than Lightroom, but it's still tricky to do it right.
You can also catch moving clouds and moving trees - plants, rivers and also car trails in midday - as long they have their lights on.

It helps to do an in-camera custom white balance with a grey card and the filter to remove the coloured tint, then you can to the fine tuning in DPP.


Cheers, Kevin ;)

I didn't use a grey card but rather just turned my lens toward a clear blue northern sky to get my custom white balance for the welding filter. Now, all I need to do is get out shoot with them.:rolleyes:
