Alright, so this was my first attempt with the 10 stop neutral density filter. It was a lot of fun: changing settings trying to get a perfect exposure. It’s definitely going to take a little getting used to. This is a bridge that a friend of mine brought to my attention. It’s an old bridge. It has a metal frame and wood flooring. Since it’s an older image, much like my images of the old governor’s mansion, I thought I would try a vintage look. I didn’t want to leave it at though. So, I made a regular B&W and the color version as well.
Also, the last image is the result of my typical Photomatix processing. I’m assuming it’s from the long exposure time because of the 10 stop filter. It was a windy day and the trees were moving. I couldn’t use the de-ghosting feature, because none of the exposures really felt right, and when trying to mask in a layer, it really didn’t work that well either. What have you guys used to accommodate for this? Any ideas/advice?
