Shot this on late afternoon Friday. A storm (which missed where I was), was brewing. I exposed this shot for catching the cloud detail. I'm looking to get a graduated ND filter to help with photos like this and sunsets. Anyone else using one of these? Shot with pentax istDS..........cheers.........thekman.

Yes, I used tohave a B&W graduated filter but I never liked the results so I gave it away. I found it very difficult to obtain the correct exposure and well balanced pictures. Its use is very limited (as you mentioned, sunsets/sunrisesare pretty much it). I thought I could have spent my money on more useful things. But once again, that's my very personal opinion.

Hi kman! Awesome looking! I love the way the light plays on these storm clouds! I checked out those pics that you were experimenting with the new lens in your other post, pretty cool being able to change lenses ain't it!

Thanks Bob. I like the light on those clouds too. Interesting. This shot was also taken with that fish lens, but I cropped out a bunch of bush. It is nice changing lenses, although it can be a pain to haul them around. I still need a long tele lens. Hoping to find a 300mm manual around f/4 to f/5.6 range in the coming year. Luckily with the Pentax, you can use their old manual lenses without much trouble at all. You just have to shoot manually, which I find i quite like doing......thekman.
