ND/32 would only cut out 5 stops of light, not nearly enough for daytime long exposures not captured in shade. The B+W example I used, which is a 10 stop, is $110. 50 pounds ($80) isn't really that much less. I don't use that filter, I just listed as a good example. What I use is $20 variable ND filter I bought off Ebay.

@ Kabstrac, Fluorescent Lamp is my favorite of the bunch. I like the color that you set the picture with. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/p7xBt.jpg[/IMG] . [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/GVerb.jpg[/IMG] I feel like shooting with a view camera has helped me.

would you say cokin filters are worth it?

fuck you guys and your awesome photos, i quit [sp](not really)[/sp] i've heard a story of this small square hole in the middle of a road that has a plant growing in it, plant stays short because cars drive over it every day, I wanna get a photo of it with a car ontop or coming towards it (in appearance, of course), not sure how i'm gonna pull that off just yet
Get down low on a pavement and whip out a zoom lens? By down low I mean literally lying down on the pavement.

Taken so many pictures at my own property, when I leave the house, everything is eye candy.
Trying out something new for inspiration, a series of pictures with a specific theme/subject. It's actually pretty fun to do.

Ah well, I kind of like it
those are beautiful man!! i really need some inspiration, i've stopped taking photos completely :( [editline]17th May 2012[/editline] could someone drop me a list of things i [B]need[/B] to complete in the next week? im on study leave and have no exams to do.. i think this would get my juices flowing again
Anyone else notice how Flickr's display has changed? Unless you view them in lightbox, they're really fucking soft. Terrible. [editline]17th May 2012[/editline] Wait... And now it's fine again. Very strange.
Just had a check on that and it's quite bad with some shots, not so much with others.
Attempted to take a picture of a spider. It moved right when I pressed the shutter which is why it's slightly blurred because I flipped a shit. [t]http://puu.sh/v7AB[/t]
Wow those are beautiful DoubleDD!
Originally went out to take pictures of the neat clouds since hugeass storms are coming in. Got caught up with a quick panorama that really turns out as just a wide angle shot.
