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
20mm
1/15
f22
used a 3 stop hard GND and a 2 stop soft GND.

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?

Thanks!

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.

Thank you Gordon

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.

PM days you are thinking of heading up. Your wife is a trooper for holding on until help got her out. Very tough indeed.
