    Sunset in the river Po's Delta

    Strong nature and human ingenuity characterise the lagoons of the river Po's Delta in Italy. Here is a "Casone", a typical construction in Comacchio's lagoons to keep an eye on pirate fishermen. A 3-seconds exposure taken almost three years ago at sunset with Leica S (007), Leica 30-90mm Vario-Elmar-S and, as always, my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.



    Thank you for viewing, best regards

    Sure thing - Grad ND to balance the exposure (I was shooting against the sun) and a mild ND to bring exposure down to 3 seconds. Hope this helps!

    .......Thank you!.......Why mild ND?..surely you would like to keep exposure time as short as possible(?) to avoid any movement of set-up.....

    Thank you, sir! The sky is about 1 hour and 45 minutes. The foreground is 16 minutes (at a lower ISO), taken after the moon came up.

    Given that the tripod keeps the camera still, it's done to achieve blurred water or clouds (which are going to be in motion). 3 seconds isn't going to create that overtly "steamy" effect of a very long exposure, but it is enough (with water anyway) to create a smoother area rather than sharply defined waves.

    In particular, in this case I wasn't interested in having a completely silky water, because that would have left me with a large area with no texture on the bottom left of the frame; all I needed was an exposure long enough to take away the "choppy", short waves of the lagoon, which were - in my opinion - a bit ugly. Hence the mild ND, rather than a strong one or no ND at all Hope this helps!

    Vieri,

    Beautiful picture! If a three second exposure would do that for me every time, I'd never shoot any other way. Getting a bit , but do you use the polarizer in your filter stack? It's difficult to switch in and out in some systems, and causes odd blue skies with very wide lenses.

    Thank you,

    Hey Matt,

    thank you very much for your comment, I am glad you enjoyed it! About your question, as you know I use the Formatt-Hitech Firecrest adapter, which has a built-in polariser in the adapter ring, the one that screws on the lens (not, like the old school Lee system, in front of the whole stack). However, Formatt-Hitech also sells adapter rings without a polariser, which are also very affordable. So, what I do is:

    - Have a ring permanently attached to every lens I own;
    - In particular, I use a polariser-free ring to my 21, 30 and 45mm XCD lenses;
    - For my 90mm and 135mm XCD, I use a polariser-with ring;

    In the rare cases where I need polarisation with wide-angle lenses, such as if I have wet stones / leaves which I need to polarise and at the same time I am in the forest with no sky visible, or under a cloudy sky with no blue in sight so to avoid the dreaded "black blob of death" caused by polarising a wide-angle lens against a blue sky, then I replace the polariser-free ring with one of the polariser-with ones and I am done.

    For the shot here, with the 30-90mm Leica lens I never used a polariser - too fiddly. Hope this helps!

    Re: Fun with MF images

    The final post from my recent trip (apologies if it's getting too much!).

    I always intended to do some of the Grand Canyon in Black & White. I found the medium suited different pictures compared to a colour rendition - the views that are all about texture and tones. The colourful ones didn't translate (as mentioned in a post from yesterday).

    So here are the ones shot for B&W:

    Love the depth, tones and mood in this one, Pramote. I presume that is WA as in Washington State (US) rather than Western Australia?!

    The colour palette here is interesting as well...

    Thank you very much Ed! Much appreciated!
    Yes, the Olympic National Park is in Washington state. It's a very beautiful Park. My daughter goes to college in WA.
    I wish to visit Australia/New Zealand one day. Today, I just learnt from my sister my only niece's got a grant for her PhD in New Zealand. My dream may come true!

    This image is a Five minute exposure from Southey Pt Salt Spring Island, BC Canada. This spot is only a couple minutes from our house. I shot this last weekend, while giving a photo lesson to my visiting nephew. A Great spot for sunset.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I'm not usually this insecure about posting but a) the last several pics in this thread have been awesomely good and b) I've gone back to photo kindergarten trying to use a tripod and filters when I've been using neither for most of the past two decades. That being said ...

    Yes, it's another "reflection in a Central Park body of water". At least it's a different pond each time! 24 seconds, Canon 24 TS-E on X1D. Now that I look at it, while the verticals are vertical, I was not facing the buildings square on, I should have aimed at them and used an angled shift.



    Matt

    OK, this is more interesting. Three minutes, stacked 10 stop and 6 stop filters, definite light leaks, although I'm not sure that's what you're seeing in the B&W image. In color, it's a tonal shift all around the edge. (And NOT with the Firecrest filters. Though 16 stops in direct sunlight is a lot to ask from anyone.)

    Thanks Dave. I saw the clouds setting up for a nice shot and headed to the point. I definitely need to shoot more local imagery.

    OK, this is more interesting. Three minutes, stacked 10 stop and 6 stop filters, definite light leaks, although I'm not sure that's what you're seeing in the B&W image. In color, it's a tonal shift all around the edge. (And NOT with the Firecrest filters. Though 16 stops in direct sunlight is a lot to ask from anyone.)

    Hey Matt,

    Great to see that you are enjoying playing with tripods & filters, my bread & butter photographically speaking! I like that second one, good idea and very well realised Matt! If I may add a small suggestion, perhaps I'd just eliminate those little branches popping up from the top in the middle of the image and close to the top right, since they seems to be coming out of nowhere and they sort of block the "flow" of the clouds - just my .02 of course, for what is worth.

    Best regards,

    Vieri,

    Thank you for the suggestion. It does, indeed, improve the image. One of the hardest things for me to learn when I started taking photography seriously was to look at the picture's edges, not just the subject! These early lessons get forgotten when concentrating on a new mode.

    (Quick retouch with PS content-aware fill. To get the clouds perfect would take more work. Then there's that one motion-blurred branch...)


    Best,

    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    I am glad you found my suggestion useful, I think it looks much better without the branch. I personally don't mind the wind-moving, motion-blurred branches, since they go pretty well with the moving-looking clouds generated by your long exposure

    Best regards,

    Agree, it is also hilarious. How did you get the German Shepherd to raise a paw? The other Shepherd seems to be eyeing the cat.

    I too would love to know more about this shot and the story behind it. Would be interesting and hilarious if this was actually a real familiy's portrait.

    Yep, me too. One of the best family portraits I have seen in a long time. They will treasure it.

    That's assuming it's a "real family's" portrait. We've yet to find out but in any case, it's a phenomenal shot.

    Nascent sunflower appearing in the garden. I love the way some new growth appears almost alien. No focus stacking possible with the wind, but I may prefer the the shallow DOF anyway. 645Z, 120mm macro, f/10
