Thanks so much! It's an area near me that I've come to realize has exceptional sunrises and a vast array of colors on most mornings! I especially love the fog that appears now with the cool, morning temperatures that we don't have over the summer.

What are a lot of you using for post processing? I have a Hitech Pro Stop, and its pretty much unusable for color shots. Are any of you having success getting color out of them? I have Photoshop CS6, and I try to adjust the white balance, and I just get these awful dark reds all over when I adjust. At this point I'm thinking of just getting a B+W since most of my lenses I use are 77mm.

I use Lightroom 4 for the majority of my post processing. CS5 for more intricate work.

I just use LR 3.6, but, I'm using the Lee Big Stopper, there isn't a cast to get rid of, usually. Those color casts are one of the reasons that the Hitech filters aren't as popular; but if you're going for a screw-on solution, the B+W ought to be pretty good.

It’s probably the filter rather than your processing. I use a Big Stopper with Custom white balance set on the camera to 8900K. It does need a little tweaking either way in post processing but I can normally get good results. I did have a Hitec but got rid of it, like you I couldn’t seem balance the colours.

I can do screw-on or Lee, because I have a Lee Holder, I just really don't want to wait 6 months for a Lee. I've heard great things about the big stopper though, and I am really satisfied with my other filters from them. I guess I'll play the waiting game.

It is totally worth the wait for the Big Stopper; I love using that thing now that I have it.

I have the B&W and I set my camera's WB Shift to somewhere around +4 blue and +2 green. Seems to work pretty well for helping avoid the slight magenta cast from the B&W. I started with a cheapo 8 stop Formatt filter, but the magenta cast was horrid. I stopped using it.

Just Picked up a 10 Stop ND from B+W, noticed it has a small little speck in it.
Similar to a "bubble" in car window tint.
Does anyone using this filter have any of these? Does it affect Image quality??
It's only about the size of a pinhead, but for a $100+ filter you would expect better right?

I have this same filter, and no, it has nothing like that in it. I agree with you that for $100, it should be spotless. Even if may not affect image quality, I wouldn't risk it if you can exchange it for a new one.

If returning is still and option, I would. If it's brand new, it should be spotless and clean; sounds like their QC process missed one. Even if it doesn't, or shouldn't, affect the images, you're always gonna have that doubt :p
