Went with Gordon Large for the café yesterday to Longwood Gardens and Winterthur and I was able to grab a few scape's nothing spectacular but figure I would share. This is the first I have gotten out in a while. :lol: These were taken in the early afternoon and it was quite hot and hazy.
Most of these shot with the 12-24 with a two stop grad ND filter

Looks like the heat is even getting to the grass these days! That first shot is beautiful! Just how tempting was it to take a swim? Looks like the water was nice and cool.

Mike, I'll take your "nothing spectacular" shots any time you want to post them. :)

Nice use of the 12-24 and ND filters!
Thanks David you know I dont use the 12-24 enough I need to force myslef to try it more, and the ND sure make it easier to avoid blown highlights, I am really digging trying them in differnet situtations

Hi Mike,

Another superb series! Is there anything you don't shoot well? I love #1 as well: the composition, colors, reflection, and of course: location, location, location! ;-) :? :lol:

What solution do you use with the graduated ND filters? What system/holder, etc...? I think I might get tempted to play with them after seeing Anand's pics from Alaska, yours, and a few others and knowing how much it takes to achieve a similar effect in post-processing...
