Until The End Of Time by MaciejKarcz Until The End Of Time by MaciejKarcz
And will we find our destination
Within a time of resignation
A night of poetry and motion

Was there in a moment in the madness
And then a momentary sadness
A night of poetry and motion


Sigma 10-20mm EX HSM lens
Hitech Grad ND 1.2 filter

As a new customer of a Cokin Grad ND filter(s), I look at this for inspiration! I hope my photos come out half as good as yours do. I'm under the impression that you have to wait for the sky to be blown out. I think in the next few days, I might try to get a stronger grad, or maybe a hard edge filter. My two soft ND grads arn't doing much for me. It's been real cloudy(like overcast) so I havn't had much chance to use mine.

:aww: Thanks. You can use the grad nd's at most any time. My two favorite times are sunset and overcast skies. During an overcast day you can use the grad nd to make some really stormy-looking pics. There's a lot you can do, you don't always have to wait for the sky to have a particular look. Have a look at *angelreich's gallery ;)

Oh wow, thanks for the link. I'm going to try some more today. I haven't even gotten any photos I took with the new filters on my computer, so who knows what they really look like. It think I might need stronger filters though : (

I tried my hand at using my filters today. Go check out my page. It's the picture of the onramp of a highway. It's pointed more at the sun.

I took a look, looks like it could use a little more contrast though. Try sunsets with a grad nd :)

Nice composition. Excellent use of the filter - the reflection is great. You'd be hard pressed to get that affect with PS.

Thank you, without the filter you probably couldn't get this in PS, most of the sky would be blown out and you'd have to draw a sky :)

Fantastic image, my friend! I loved the composition, the tone! Could you explain a little the influence of the Hitech Grad ND 1.2 filter in the shot?
I want to know a little more… I want to buy some filters soon. :)

The grad ND is a square filter that is darker on the upper half and transparent on the bottom half. ND means neutral gray so that it makes the sky darker without changing its color. You'd use this kind of filter for scenes that have too much dynamic range, if you meter for the ground then your sky would be blown out and if you metered for sky the ground would be all black. Grad NDs come in many strengths (1.2 is 4 stops of light) and in varying levels of quality. Cokin are good ones to start out with, the Hitech brand is a lot better quality but costs 2 or 3 times more. Anyone who wants to shoot landscape or sunsets must have at least one grad ND ;)
