    After gym this morning I noticed the sunrising from my window. I farted around for 15 minutes thinking it would not be worth it, then went for a drive with camera + tripod to have a look. Fortunately the clouds put on a show once I got there :thumbup:

    The perils of having an un-calibrated monitor and a bigstop!

    The bigstopper produces some crazy cast, and even more-so when using a cokin (never use cokins nowadays due to it).

    Here is the untouched from the camera

    Hmm I thought you would be able to get that cast out (with the Big Stopper I thought it was more blue, where as the B+W 10 stopper is more magenta).

    Stacking Cokin filters is never a good idea. I am glad I broke one of the filter holders on mine, since I can only hold one filter the cast is reduced dramatically.

    Sorry, it is a B+W :thumbup: Mixed with the Cokin's Magenta = :sick:

    I find feathering black card in front of the lens to work reasonably okay with the B+W 10.

    Nice reflections. Is the jetty open now?

    I can't see a colour cast unless they have been edited. Maybe ever so slightly purple?

    Did you see the clouds before the sun rose? Were they pink?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    +1 ?

    Didn't know it was open again... or did you fence hop?

    Also, doesn't strike me as the sort of shot that would benefit from a big stopper (or an ND in general...) what made you decide to use it?

    On my calibrated screens the whites are magenta (not just a light tint).

    Fair enough. I might have to re-calibrate mine then!

    I wanted to smooth out the water, the sun was well and truly up and small aperture alone couldn't cut it.

    The jetty is still closed, even more of it now (last week you could at least get to the floorboards, now they have put additional fencing as some of the concrete has risen). The local paper says they haven't even started on it, tenders just closed, so expect a fair wait still.

    Just put up the tripod nice and high to peek over the fencing :thumbup:

    I like shot 2 man.

    It does have the tinge of magenta but I don't think it detracts.
