    Brilliant as usual Colin.

    Looks can be deceptive, it looks pretty warm from where I'm sitting

    12 minutes? How many times did you try before being sattisfied with the result?

    Brilliant indeed. My taste/eye/something just loves the treatment this tree got on Friday in 'One Tree Vista'.

    Thanks Keith - I took about 100 shots, but most of those were 3 shot brackets (that I didn't use). I start shooting as soon as the sun sets, but the "money shots" usually come an hour or so after that ... It's the long exposures that give the smooth clouds.

    Exposure calculation comes straight from my lightmeter (spot metering), but with a 5 stop offset (3 for the GND Filter, and 2 to shift the metered midtone to a highlight).
