"10 Stop ND Waterscapes"


cambridge, US
          

Had a chance to put my 10 stop neutral density filter to some good use on a recent trip to Maui & Kauai. Here are a couple of my favorites. Both made using Singh Ray Var-n-duo in combination with a 10 stop B&W ND filter.

I think the thick horizon line makes them look somewhat unreal.
Also, there are not enough shadows to give the images some added depth.
Maybe trying again at the golden hours could turn them much better.
Never be afraid to make mistakes, such fear kills creativity.
At least that is what I keep telling myself ...

Thanks JRP. Your point is well taken about the golden hour and added depth but I'm not sure what to do about the horizon line as I believe it is an artifact of the long exposure process.

Yes, that thick line is there to stay, but added depth may change its look.
Keep on trying.

Perhaps if the camera is a bit lower, the rocks might break it up a bit more? (at least on the first one)

Hi Matt,

Very fine seascape pictures but in this case I think the 10 stop neutral density filter is too much. The sea doesn`t look like water but like cotton wool.

I quite agree - but I do like that aspect, at least in #1 (less so in #2). So for me, with the same reserves as JRP, nice work... to be considered a practice shot before renewed golden hour attempts.

But when you do that, maybe the addition of the var'n'duo and the 10-stop will be a bit too much

I really like the first one. It reminds me of work by Franco Fontana.

Thanks all. I too think the first is the stronger effort and have to say that the "cotton wool" aspect is kinda what I was going for, at least with number 1. I also think that when I do future shots at the golden hour I won't likely need both the Vari-n-duo and the 10 stop as the light levels will be significantly lower. On this trip I also did some longish exposures of a couple of seconds (as opposed to a minute or more)and really liked the effect that gave me. Can't wait to get back to some open water to improve my shots in this area.
