A grey day at the coast, nothing spectacular in reach.
Just me, the waves, a stoney beach and the FZ5.

.....if I only had a camera obscura!












But there is my new greyfilter - factor 10000, 13 steps (aperture).

So have a look:


































Data:
normal - p mode
camera obscura mode: f 2.8, iso 200, time 8 sec. - last picture 24 sec. (4 pics. combined)
The FZ5 has a 8 sec. time limit ....

I hope you like it

Sven

Sven, I definitely like it. I really like the mystic quality of the second shot. Looks like a mist over the water. Readily apparent that you enjoyed the beach.

thanks bayourebel, tcook, rhermans and treed,

I found this lens after reading this page:

http://www.photogg.de/ulz/Ultralangzeit.htm

You should look at this too!!

If anybody is looking for these special neutral gray filters, here are the specs.:

This is from my tips and tricks page:
http://people.freenet.de/seemolf/TripsAndTicks.html

B&W filters and Neutral Density factors
# • B&W 101 ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2) this is equivalent to the NDx2 lens
# • B&W 102 ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4) = NDx4
# • B&W 103 ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/ 2 = NDx8
# • B&W 106 ND 1.8 (exposure adjustment = approx. 6 stops, transmits 1% of light,)
# • B&W 110 ND 3.0 (exposure adjustment = 10 stops, transmits 0.1% of light)
# • B&W 113 ND 4.0 (exposure adjustment = 13-2/3 stops, transmits 0.01% of light)
# • B&W 120 ND 6.0 = (exposure adjustment = approx. 20 stops)
and Baader sun foil ND 5.0 (exposure adjustment = 16 1/2 stops, transmits 0.001% of light)

The ND4 lens can be used for direct photography of the sun.
(!!! only for the camera, our eyes need ND5 -Baader sunfilter- or more !!!)
With different cameras it is used for long sky shots.
Exposures of one minute or more let the moving people disappear in a crowded city.
...and we have the chance to shoot lightning at daylight.

Sven

thanks Don,

I always liked long exposures.

Blurring the motion is a small step towards eternity...

I hope I will find more stones in restless oceans soon, there is a storm out there.

Great idea, Sven

I ve always loved those shots with sea looking like dense fog.
Sometimes I have stacked polarizer plus a couple of coloured filters to achieve that effect with cascades in B/W.
