As I stated in this thread, I recently became the proud owner of a Singh Ray Vari ND (the thin version).
On my recent weekend away on the shores of the very beautiful Loch Lomond, my goal was, as well as hopefully making some decent images, to 'play' with the new filter and try and master its use on my various lenses. It will take more than one weekend to really understand the impact of the filter and I think only experience will allow me to really know what to envision as the final image if I use the filter.
Colin (Southern) has far more experience using this filter and that shows in the quality of his work in images when he has it mounted on the front of the lens.
Anyway, my earlier thread led to a discussion about the use of the filter and I said I was working on some images that would hopefully illustrate it (and me) at work.
I think these are best viewed as a pair (or at least they work as a pair for me). I'm also just finishing a pair that I captured on the Sunday morning, when the mist really came down and the atmosphere was totally different. I'll put them up later.
But in the meantime, I'd welcome any thoughts or comments you have about these. And, remember, I'm only learning!
