You mean the cloud movement my friend? Its a very dark neutral density filter I use to get a very long exposure even in daylight. So much fun to me! The exact filter I use is called a Hoya ND400 but there are other filters made you can get this effect with. So glad you like it Lucie!! Autumn is my very favorite time of year. :)
Yup...they screw right on to your lens. They come in different sizes. It's millimeters (mm) here in the States. Your lens should have a small number written on it somewhere, sometimes near the lens cap on the bottom. Something like 55mm or something maybe? Mine is 77mm because I use a wide angle lens to get these cool perspectives. You get a lot of depth with them. A tripod is also a important tool to me for shots like this since the exposure is so long.
awesome this maple tree leave.... glowing in its rich autumn colours..... contrast to the soft turquoise of sky light.... a deep comfort enfolds by this work.... i wish to sit there until the wind steals 'my' leave away and brings it into winterland......
i love the textures..... is this also a HDR? there is a comforting opulence in this work.....
i am sorry..... i HAD to come back to this 'beyond paradise'.... and now.... i see..... yes, it is a HDR...... (i am sorry, the first time, i just was overwhelmed .... ) such a velvety ..... you are a master in HDR works !!
Not a problem at all Barbara!! I have a super great friend that first got me started in HDR (or tonemapping you will also hear it referred to) about 3 years ago and I really ran with it. Spent countless hours trying to learn better technique. And in the past 3 months I haven't tonemapped a single shot. LOL! There are still certain times and places I will have to use HDR techniques to get the dynamic range I want I know so I need to stay sharp with it. HAHA! I would just spend over an hour on one shot and I sure like spending 5-15 minutes now. Thank you so much my friend! I am very honored you like my tonemapping. I usually try and keep it as natural as possible. I am not a fan of "muddiness" or "haloing" in HDR. I call it overcooking a shot.
