24-120vr goes to the beach

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Creative Edge, Jun 4, 2011.

  1. the more I use this lens, the more I like it's versatility and IQ.
    I was bored this morning and decided to jump on the bike with the d700 one lens a Vari-Density filter and head out to get a shot I had been thinking about.

    I'm going to be working on a series of shots at different times of the day, from the same vantage point.

    things pretty much came together on the first of the series :smile:

    Wonderful photo...I am anxious to see more in the series.
     
  9. thanks for the kind words,
    I actually went for a ride with the camera, tripod strapped to the back of the motorcycle and thought it was in vain as it was later than I care to go and shoot.

    I was wondering how you shot that without a tripod - but it all makes sense now

    Great shot!

  12. Which vari ND do you use, and does it vignette at 24mm?
     
  13. Gorgeous shot!

  15. Keith, I use a Singh-Ray Vari-Density filter, at 24 it does vignette a small bit but in those cases I use the 16-35 at the 24 FL. When I need 16mm with a Neutral Density I use the B&W slim 10 stop ND which vignettes very little on the 16-35. For the most part the Singh-Ray is my most used filter.
     
  16. ducky, Keith, Vindex, Alan and Glenn, thanks for the kind words.

    I have a large format printer and last night I printed it at 24x14 and it really does look impressive. Will be framing it for my office.
