  1. Where is that? By Oporto? Or further South?
  2. The first two at Peniche, 80 miles north from Lisbon. Third and fourth 15 miles south from Oporto and the last one here in Oporto.

    Oki I was just wondering as I got a lee filter, ND grad 0-6 a few weeks back and I was trying some seascapes as well and I thought they might help with the horizon/sky where they meet..I am going to the coast soon this week or next and will post you a couple shots here with the ND Grad on..
  14. Peter,
    Sometimes I find polarizers very useful to shoot seascapes, specially to boost colours and emphasize clouds. Here an example taken in Brasil:

    however, I am not so sure of the benefits of a ND to achieve the same results. I see graduated ND more suitable to dark overcasted white skies keeping the ground subjects with the original taken exposure. I got great results from a B&W graduated ND in some pics I took in Poland last winter, when the sky was tipically snow sky:
