    Time is relative

    About a month ago I bought a B&W ND110 filter (that's 10 stops of sheer beauty ). I really love what can be achieved when combining long exposures with water or skies, especially combined with black and white. So for now it's just practise, practise and practise.
    What do you think of the results achieved so far? Please be open in your critics, I appreciate it.

    Wow! #2 has sooooo much energy and power in it - and I am NOT trying to make puns or be facetious. The sky with the subject gives me a very emotional response - I can just feel the electricity. Very cool!

    Firstly, I congratulate you on your use of the filter so far. You are clearly using it as a tool to complement and add to your already considerable skills as a photographer. I think it would be very easy to go 'over-the-top' with this filter and start producing all sorts of weird images. However, the fact that you not doing that is to your credit.

    For my taste, the sky is too 'flat' in this. It needs some shape and texture that would be provided by cloud.

    The voting in the Mini Comp tells its own story. This is a very well structured, executed and processed image.

    I can appreciate the bleakness of this, but am not sure that it works. Maybe if we has seen the top of the light stand closest to you ...?

    Re: Time is relative

    Thanks for the comments Donald,

    The bleakness is what I wanted to capture. It was the first bit of snow we have this year, and I used a long exposure to increase the bleakness since it was snowing throughout the capture. But without the tree line in the back I think it would have looked better. About the post: It was at least twice as high as shown in this photo and I already stood with my back against the fence.

    I like #1 because the sky is boring, put another way real. Must have been a very still day. I think you can maybe use this filter in a city, I will like to see what it looks like.

    That's certainly something I intend to do. I already have a some shots in my head which I'll do in Eindhoven (the city where I study). Now find the time to do so.
