    Very nice Douglas,Congratulations on a Great capture:smile:
  4. Very nice! Congratulations Douglas.
  5. Thank you for spotting this and the wonderful compliment Terri. Wish I could get out and shoot more over the last month, but I am at home caring for my wife. She broke her leg while we were out hiking and scouting some areas I could go back to and shoot early morning or late evening. She had to be carried out by search and rescue :( 

    If anyone is interested, the shooting data:

    lens 17-35
    used a 3 stop hard GND and a 2 stop soft GND.
  6. Thank you Dave, Phil, Tim and Anthony!

    Great Shot!! Looks like a painting!

    All the best to your wife for a speedy recovery.
  8. Congratulations, Douglas. That is a beautiful shot, that is well deserving of being honored.
  9. Absolutely beautiful, and I didn't know they grew tulips like that down in PA! :smile:

    Sorry to hear about your wife, I hope her recovery is fast and uneventful!

    When you say you used the two filters, did you stack them? Did this give you a loss of 4-5 stops? Which one was closer to the lens, and why the stack?

  10. Thank you Haze and Cliff.

    Gretchen, yes I stacked them in the holder. It was late morning and very bright. I wanted to capture as much detail in the clouds as I could. I postioned the the grad line of the hard stop filter between the tulips and the sky, then slid the soft grad in place. The hard stop was closest to the lens. Oh yeah, better mention I held my hat over the lens to block flare.
  11. Douglas, that is just a super picture and a worthy winner.
  12. Congrats Doug and good to see you online again. Sorry to hear about your wife...OUCH!

    Where's the stunning shots of your Japanese Garden shoot? Man, I hated missing that one this year.

    Talk soon.

    Peter, I wasn't happy with any of the Japanese Garden shots. sorry you couldn't make it. I plan on heading up to Twin Falls (where my wife broke her leg) to finish scouting soon. You are welcome to come along.

    Thank you John.
