Default More long exposures.

We went out again up to Bowman Bay at Deception Pass yesterday...got out at 6am looking for the summer fog that lays in there.

This stuff is still new to us, still a learning curve. The ND filters from Cokin give a reddish cast to anything green (Play with WB Ken!) so I've gone B&W once again. They were all shot at f22 and between 40 and 60 seconds.
I used just the #9 ND, strong enough that I couldn't see anything through the viewfinder. I had to compose the shot, then slide the filter into place (fun)
What was amazing the E500 did that the D600 couldn't was to auto focus through the filter. The rest of the settings were manual of course.

I could get a 60second shot, the D600 can only manage 30 without going to bulb.

The sun was burning through quite quickly which didn't help.

Here they are with some cropping for composure. The misty look is the waves breaking on the rocks.

Those are interesting and unusual shots Ken. It is also amazing that you got auto-focused shots thru a dark #9 ND filter.

Hey Ken.. love the effect that pics 3-5 have the last two look very nice indeed. Just curious as to what the colour version looks like ?

Thanks guys. The AF was pretty impressive. Saved me trying to MF then slide the filter on, tricky.

How about this then.... Looking at it, If I could control the colour then I like it better.
Really the rocks are black with a tiny red tint. the kelp is green and the water a pewter colour in the morning under the fog.
The waves on the beach were about 2 foot when they broke.

I like these, Ken. It's odd than an ND filter changes specific wavelengths. That said, I really like the gently surrealistic effect of the color photo. It's not like the obviously manipulated colors you get from a color IR photo.
