Great pic. Before I rush out and buy those filters, did you do any work in photoshop or the like?

I have just made an enquiry about buying this filter and was told I need a Grey in it. I am also told I need to buy Cokin for my camera, even though I have a 55mm thread size. Can you help? Would this be right? Thanks. John.:?

Hi

Used Photoshop Elements 2: adjust levels, adjust color saturation, adjust brightness, resize, usm and noisware thats it.

You need a cokin P holder thatwill hold up to 3 of these filters, HiTech GND filters are more expensive than Cokins own grey types which are well reported to give of a color cast, could notget these in Australia and had to import from 2filter.com in the U.S.hope this helps.

Hi Wirraway, Thanks for all that info. Just a couple of other questions if you don't mind.

How long ago did you import theseto Australia?

What was the total cost?

Was there any tax payable at Customs?

John.

Very nice job. IMHO light reflection is the key of success.

Hi John

Go here: http://www.2filter.com/prices/htpackages.htmland you will see for just over US$55 you can get the Cokin P holder + adaptor+ HiTech filter of your choice, you will have to email or phone to get the shipping cost, when I got mine last year I ordered 2 extra HiTechs plus a 'Moose' polarizer and Hoya hood, there was no tax or duty applicable, when an item is over I think A$300 they add the shipping cost as well as the price of the item and charge 10% GST + A$55 admin costs, usually still way cheaper than buying cameras etc here in Australia, I bought my used Sony F707 from the U.S. as well and saved a bomb against buying one here.

Cheers & Beers Wirraway
