I guess Sandy showed us, lol.
I too always reach for the F150 or the DFA 90 for portraits instead of the 120 because my results have never been stellar. But, there is much to be said for technique.

Ed, great vantage and love the fantasy and realistic versions equally well! Really excellent long focal length technique as always.

before I retire my now cracked blue/yellow polarizer forever, I went out to the pool and shot the water surface to show a quick comparison of the effect. It definitely works best with shiny surfaces (as does any polarizer).
check it out...
btw the second image is the Cokin blue/red polarizer.

The cokin version does the same, as it is also a polarizer. In fact, it appears to be two polarized layers of glass fused together. I know this because I just dropped mine and it broke. Aw crap.

it's clear i haven't used mine in 8 years, mainly because i forgot. So, i'm promising to pull it out and try to do something with it in July. Thanks for posting this thread, 72ndPoolShark!!

barondia, mine is the cokin version too. I recall it dd magic things with seascapes but I was at a loss for finding utility in other scenarios.
I also have the cokin red/blue filter and I have been able to find no good use for that anywhere.

wow, i can totally see what the filter is doing for that bronze statue. great tip!


Here's another oldie where the blues really went deep and dark using the filter. There wasn't much for the gold effect to grab onto, tho:

It's a national landmark with patrolling ranger(s). They clear everyone out at sunset and we needed to navigate some rough terrain without the use of headlamps. Once I knew i had my 2 shots in the bag, i didn't feel bad blasting my LED panel a few times to check out the river bank and surroundings. A lovely place.

Stunning work, Ed, and I believe you have proven that it's the photographer, not the gear, or something like that.
Love those 400mm tele shots and the amazing color of barrenjoey head.

Last night's Sonoma Coast plans were dashed due to fog, but Plan B was this covered bridge along the Stanislaus River.
