very interesting seeing the effect the ND has with the BW shots. See that you were by pier 41 the super size parking lot and converted sport fields and Chelsea pier. You were on my bicycle path. Never thought about taking photos of all the junk that is by NYC Dept of San. But it works for telling a story about environmental awareness. But the city will clean all that up with the project of making the manhattan waterfront a gaint park that rings the island. They are ripping up the east river down by me now.

Thanks shoturtle! This 10 stop ND is a fun filter! The long exposure aren't so fun for me and the batteries! Next time I'll have 2 fully charged batteries. I was out of the bick path, those guys are CRAZY! They don't stop for anyone or thing! I've always wanted to shoot the pilings but never got a shot I liked. The ND and cloudy day worked out, at least I think so That junk has been for the longest! Can't wait till they fix it up like from 23rd and up, very nice. Must be a mess by you.

Thanks Torgny! It's the old harbor on the west side of Manhattan. They're starting to clean it up. The parts that are done is nice. Much nicer than the old path. I can't wait till the entire west side is finished.

Really cool effect on the surface. I love it. You've convinced me to order an ND filter.

these look really nice. i really enjoyed #1 and #3!


10 stop NDs are fun to play around water.

a friend of mine had a whole gallery of long exposure b&ws from Singapore, and were gorgeous.

Thanks Hards80! This is my first time using any kind of ND filter with water. It is FUN! Next I'll shot the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. Hope for a nice partly cloudy day so I can capture the moving clouds and water.

Do you find long esposures work better in b&w?

BTW Here's a landscape version of #1. Not sure which I like better...

I think i prefer this landscape orientation, its a little more expansive feeling.

as for your color vs black and white. i think both work, its just picking the right one for the given situation. on overcast day like it looks like you had here without any strong colors, i think the black and white works well. but if a scene has some nice colors in it, etc, then a color works quite well too.
