Thanks! I like it, too. For some reason the last picture didn't render properly to the site- the colors are muted and it's a bit soft all around.

Just purchased this lens from member Kp0c here and I couldn't be more pleased. There is quite a steep learning curve being fully manual, but I enjoy the challenge.

Yeah, mine is from Fotasy and I think it is two filters stacked to provide graduated results, and it was less than $20. It takes many shots and more than a few crap images that wastes my batteries and tries my patience. But occasionally the results are passable. Almost worth it.

There was a discussion earlier this week about ND (neutral density) filters and I felt compelled to dig mine out. It was an impulse buy in a shop somewhere about a year ago, and I had only used it a few times and didn't like what I saw. To wit: I got it back out this weekend, and am pleased with what developed...

Man, that's great. Nice shot. Beautiful subject, gorgeous bokeh strings, and the white balance is spot on. Excellent.

Here's an update:

I did manage to locate my cheap (<$20) rotating ND filter from Fotasy, and snapped a good deal of shots this weekend. The image below happens to be one of my favorites. While I don't doubt the "real" ND filters may render some notable results, what I have serves my purposes for now.

Hey, Rainbow Falls! That's just up the street from here, love that place! Nice shots, also. Might have to dust my old ND filter off and see what I can't do...

Wild sugar cane I spotted while out on a walk. Doesn't get much sweeter, imho.

I usually think that the whole crashing wave shot motif is a bit played out, but I thought I'd share as I'm pretty pleased with how this one went. Especially given that I didn't mean to take this picture.

I shot this a couple of days ago with the 18-55mm kit lens on a K50. EXIF says it was at 50mm f22 for 1.2 seconds with no filters. Only a slight touchup (highlights, straightening, cropping out unwanted bits, and some minor vibrance boosting and saturation clipping) in Lightroom.

I own a ND filter, I think it's a 6-stop, adjustable job from Tiffen or one of the other cheap vendors. It is ok, but I have yet to yield any results that I like. Not saying that ND filters couldn't or don't have anything to offer, I don't think I could say that at any rate as I've not much experience with them. I have taken to tightening up the aperture, setting up a tripod or other sturdy surface, adjusting ISO for the conditions, and going from there- usually in Bulb mode. I've had more success with this method than any I tried with my cheapo ND filter.

Multiple exposure stacking to fake the "ND look" has always seemed like too much work for minimal payoff. Your mileage, as always, may vary.

Still very much accessible. Lovely place, it's like Hapuna Lite. Lovely. By the way, I'm off to Maui for a few days next week; any suggestions for places to see and snap?
