Rockpool in Lorne. This was taken not far before sunset which happened behind the camera. I liked the other shots but felt they lacked some mood, so what did I do? You guessed it! On went the 6-stop + 3-stop soft graduated filter and just like that, I had a 25 - second exposure in combination with the circular polarizer. The effect of these filters can be seen in the water and clouds. Exposure details are f16 for 25 - seconds, ISO 64. #Landscape #Scenic #Beach #Nikon #Seascape


_marisol: Just awesome as usual from you. Hehe...nice to hear that someone else is using a lot of graduated filter πŸ‘ I also use a lot of radial filter, quite often like 2-3 stops graduated and even 10 stops radial filter. It's like polishing the picture. Anyway, as you know I love your work and always thrilling to see what is coming next πŸ˜ƒ Cheers mate! Have a wonderful weekend! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ‘β€β€

ian.underthesea: Thank-you so much Marisol! 😊 The nd filters really add something to the atmosphere of a scene I find and I like making the colors pop and water see through with the polarizers too. What are the radial filters you are using by the way? Are they the circular ones you turn for greater effect? Cheers my friend and I hope your weekend is a beauty! May your little scout lead you to some new treasures to share with usπŸ™πŸ‘πŸ˜

_marisol: Hi Ian. IΒ΄m sorry my answer took so long. Radial filters are indeed circular ones which I place in the image I want to improve, xra-edit, correct something etc. Graduated filters are rectangular ones, including the same ability to edit a pic as a radial one (their sliders are the same), but nevertheless, with the help of the radial filter you can,, turn the sky too bright into a darker one. Now IΒ΄m curious as to how you use these filter(s), not just in this pic but in general. Any tips for me??? πŸ˜ƒ Happy ValentineΒ΄s Day Ian! πŸ’œ

ian.underthesea: Hi Marisol and Happy Valentine's Day to you too πŸ˜™ I used a radial filter on the water to bring down the exposure as this was not the main subject and was distractingly bright. There is a graduated filter across the bottom of the image increasing clarity where the focus is sharp in the foreground. The sky was already balanced in camera with the 3-stop graduated neutral density filter in infront of the lens as well as the circular polarizer. I want to say I try to be subtle with filters but it's not really true: I love what they do for an image and they are part of my style! 😎
