I decided that I want to get better landscape shots so decided that some ND Grads would help (I know buying things will not make me a better photographer, but will at least get rid of blown out skys).

What do you think of these3 shots?

Thanks for looking.

Mark

Nice shots mate. #3 is my fave, great colours. Brixham is a great place for photos, very picturesque, and you've done it proud. I too am looking to purchase some nd grads to fix my blown skys and have a question. How do you decide where the grad fades in the shot? In other words if you recompose and change the horizon line in the shot, can you move the grad up and down?

Thanks Dan, I'm with you, that is my fave. As I said landscape is not my forte (yet) so just trying lots of different things!

As for the filters, in my vast experience of about 1 hour shooting with them yesterday, it is easy to adjust them as they just slide into the holder and are griped by friction so they don't fall out but can be easily moved. Not wishing to advertise but the best place to us locally is Mifsuds in Brixham which although a 45 min drive isthe only place that hasany stock(hence I chose to shoot there).

I did not quite get the horizons right as it is not over easy to see (but can be helped by pressing the dof button) and I guess it is all about practise.
