This was my first attemt using my 10 stop for a water/landscape shot.
Sadly I didn't put LE NR on so there's ALOT of hot pixels. Lesson learnt.
2min exposure. There's also a heron sitting on the end of the pool.

Looks good, Peter...! :smile:

Just curious, why did you use a 10-stop...? Is it simply just to learn/experiment...?

thanks

yeah, just experimenting. I just bought a used light craft 10 stop filter and wanted to try the silky water look. it doesn't show too well here as it was very still in the pool already.
Only other time ive used it was in a busy street in china.

heres one from the beach beside, again the water wasn't moving a lot as it was every cam weather.

Love the colors and composition. How much color correction did you need with your 10 stop?

Mine causes a blue cool hue and I have to warm up the image but I dont eve get purples like that.

Very beautiful! First picture is great!
Where is it taken?

I just bought the LEE big stopper, but to be honest I haven't used it a lot yet.

But why would you use LE NR? If you take a 2 minutes exposure picture, the NR needs another 2 minutes before you can take another picture. Precious time when there's a sunrise or sunset. I *think* not sure that Lightroom removes all hot pixels when you import your pictures.

Thanks, its taken below the castle in my home town of St Andrews, Scotland (where they play golf).

Light room certainly didn't remove the hot pixels from this, you can't see them unless zooming quite a lot. But there's certainly enough of them, not sure if they would show in print as I'm not a landscape photographer so haven't had this issue before.

Heres a crop showing the hot pixels, think this is 2:1 crop in light room, so maybe they wouldn't show up even at 100% crop, but there all over the image. they show up worse in the edit.

yea yours looks an awful lot like mine with that blue cast but its great you were able to pull all of that color from the raw file. that means the color was there and just needed to be brought out. thanks so much for posting up the SOOC, great work.
