    I've been testing out a cheap version of filters from SRB filters. Not a bad piece of kit although I think I'm going to upgrade to a larger size of glass ones from Kase. I shot a few images using the ten stop filter but a lack of attention whilst opening a beer saw my tripod collapse and fall off the rocks smashing my Sigma 10-20mm lens into pieces.

    All shot at either

    15secs
    F16
    ISO 100

    Or

    2.5secs
    F6.3
    ISO 100

    lovely spots especially the 2nd.

    Looks like you have some colour cast issues in some, common with darker filters. the 1st and last look much more like I would expect.

    All very impressive vibrant images with a refreshingly distinct style. Nicely done.

    Thank you. I've started saving for the next one.

    Thank you.

    Thank you

    Thank you. I've pushed the clarity & vibrancy in a couple whilst trying out some new editing techniques by Serge Ramelli but obviously pushed it too far.

    Thank you

    The technique was for B&W (almost HDR style) but I thought I'd apply it to colour and see if it worked. Still got a lot to learn in shooting landscape images.

    Very true! Off to Arbroath soon so hopefully I'll find some nice new areas to shoot.

    That's a shame about the lens. Unfortunately it's the nature of the beast when you dabble in landscaping. I'm not suggesting your tripod isn't up to it but this is why I always advocate a strong stable tripod to mount your gear on for several good reasons. One being the hefty price tag some tripods command can always be justified because it often eliminates expensive camera/lens accidents.
    I've seen guys with 1000's of pounds worth of gear perched precariously on unstable flimsy supports arranged in such a way if the camera was knocked even one or two inches the whole lot would be over.

    Is this where we sit with smug smiles with our long spiked Gitzo's?

    It's amazing how some folks (not a dig at the op as I have no idea of the sitiation or equipment) sit really expensive gear on top of unstable and substandard tripods when it's just about the single most important item for sharp landscape images.

    Especially long exposures. I noticed an instant improvement in ultimate sharpness when doing longer exposures after acquiring a heavy sturdy stable tripod.
    It's not smug but pleasantly reassuring when you plunge 4" long spikes in to any ground that the whole lot isn't going to crumple like a cheap suit. I can safely say that in approximately 4 years since owning a large fat legged Gitzo I've never once had an oops moment. Probably jinxed myself now. :D

    you have some nice compositions there. four and five are my faves. some look a little over blue, so maybe consider dialing that back a touch.
