Clouds, sea and the effects of a 10-stop ND-filter
Lens: DA*16-50 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Ternaard, the Netherlands ISO: 100 Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Fries, 12-07-2014, 11:26 AM

I haven't posted that much lately because it has been awfully busy at work and after that the weather did not cooperate. Yesterday I finally went out with my tripod and ND filter and here are some of the results!

I hope you like them!

Vielen Dank Norbert! Ihr habt auch eine schöne strecke Wattenmeer wo mann vermutlich gut Bilder wie diese machen kan. Aber Deutschland ist schon etwas größer als die Niederlande und die Küste ist möglich ziemlich weit weg für dich! (Thanks Norbert, you also have a nice stretch of Waddensea where it should be possible to shoot the same sort of photo's. But Germany is quite a bit larger then the Netherlands and the coast might be a very long drive away for you.) It has been a while since I spoke or wrote something German and I fully expect it not to be up to scratch anymore. Thats what the English translation is for!

Fast perfekt Remco! No need for a translation, die Nordseeküste ist 3 Stunden entfernt und im Januar werde ich mal wieder eine Woche Urlaub dort verbringen.
Take care

I knew I should of studied German instead of Spanish. Great shots Remco, I've got an ND 10 but still can't seem to get it right shooting landscapes, this inspires me. The colors really stand out in this photo, a pleasure to view.

I forgive you for you foolish choice for the Spanish language Bob. Thanks! If I can be of any assistance concerning your use of a ND filter let me know. Shoot me a pm or ask it right here!

Thank you Alcazar! The exposure time was 123,3 seconds. What you see aren't waves, but those are exposed mudflats.

Cheers,

Remco

I have a ND filter but have never tried it out. These photos inspire me to finally stick it on the end of a lens and give it a whirl! Gorgeous shots!

Thank you very much! Yours is one of the most rewarding compliments to receive. To know that someone thousands of miles away goes out to trie something new because of my photography is something special. Good luck with your photography and keep a eye out for the weather and the time of day. Long exposure photography like this works best if there is some visible movement (clouds, water, cars, pedestrians etcetera) in my opinion. Especially with the K-3 it is best to cover up your eyepiece to prevent light leaks destroying a fine photograph and use live view in stead. I use the mirror up function to prevent vibrations and a remote. Prefocus before you put the ND filter on to get as much as possible in focus. When there is not that much light you will have a hard time judging from the live view if everything you want is in focus (it just gets to dark to see). Then put the lens in manual focus mode to prevent accidentally shifting the focus.

(Out of laziness and lots of experience with the same lens I skip the prefocus part quite a lot. You get to know the sweet spot of the lens if you shoot a lot in the same conditions.)

thanks Remco, the main problem is we don't get many moody sky to make good use of the filter. Shot in bright sky just doesn't work at long SS. We are supposed to get some cloud cover in the next couple of days, so I'll do a bit of experimenting to see how it comes out.
