Very Nice Thomas, Really shows of the best of the lens and the film type. (I've hardly ever seen a shot from this lens, your lucky to own it)

Outside of the beauty of the shot, I am appreciative of the effort it takes to make long exposures. I did a few recently in France and it is incredible how suddenly a few minutes seems like hours when you are waiting in a dark, chilly and windy place.

Cheers,

Thanks Eddie. I love that lens, even though it's the weakest of the 67 lenses I own. It's very soft in the corners, but who cares, it's a fisheye. KEH has one for $500 (EX grade) if you're interested. You can wait for a BGN grade, usually about $350.

HAHA thanks, I'd need a 67 first , my MF is a Lowly Bronica ETRsi, widest i have is the 40. I watch KEH for deals though they are very conservative in their ratings IMHO
and your right who cares about a little softness in the edges on a fish-eye, it's got a lot more distortion than that intentionally

That shot looks rather 'otherworldly' with such a long shutter tuco. Especially the middleground rocks. Very nice job, I like it
Thanks. On a prior trip there I shot this rock and some out of the frame next to it and it too looked like that too.

Nice. The whites are well preserved.

That's surreal. I've pondered over getting that fish-eye on more than one occasion.

Yeah, it doesn't sound like much but take 10 long exposure shots and the time adds up. And for each successful shot there are some rejects. A sneaker wave comes in during the exposure and hits you. I've had that happen way too many times. And I just use my wrist watch which has an analog dial and I lose track of elapsed time especially if someone comes up and talks to me. I really need to get a stop watch.

Is that the Sun on the side? Bold shot. Whatever happen to that 6x7 of yours with the shutter stuck on 1/125th problem?

240 second exp? Of course, in the night?

I would bet the day, just the ND filter allowing the time. a ndx400 is 9 stop light removal (1/500 of the original light)

Take the ND filter off and at f16 middle gray is EV9 (=1/2 sec at f16, 100ASA). That is not very unreasonable in the twilight after sunset, no? And after 120 seconds you're suppose to apply 1/2 stop of additional light for reciprocity (=f13 or 360 second exposure) with Acros but I didn't do that. Neither f13 or 360 seconds is what I wanted so I counted on the film's latitude + scanning and neglected reciprocity.

EDIT: What is interesting is the sum of exposure errors and the film's latitude and using an image editor. First, I metered for 100ASA with my Pentax Spotmeter V but really my EI is between 50 and 80. Second, a NDX400 filter should really be ≈8.6 stops if we believe the filter factor of 400 is accurate but I used 9-stops. And finally, ignoring reciprocity.

not at all, the ND 400 is a pretty extreme ND filter and I think a lot of people will never have used an ND8+ filter (or an IR filter which is also pretty drastic given I expose ISO 400 Ir at iso6 or so when i shoot it - not at twilight though Ir is better closer to mid morning/noon when the amount of ir is at it's peak
so this was twilight then, looked like there was fog as well which would bring down the exposure

the pacific NW is a great spot to shoot (I have family on Vancouver Island and am always awed by the natural beauty when i go to visit
