    An attempt at a long exposure. It did not come out how I wanted. It was a little to light. But I will have another go when I am out that way.

    Here is something I converted to Mano recently which came out well I think. Manaslu peak, 8th largest in the world

    Thanks Gary. Something makes these big guys look good in B&W.
    Practitioners advice to look at world in B&W before shooting for B&W. Frankly I am yet to learn this.

    Gary, I don't think it needs too much adjustment. On another thought have you been able to get onto the site since the 13th of last month as this is the first time I have since that date Craig S.

    Hey Craig,

    The plan was to do a longer exposure to make the surface of the water a little smoother. But I couldn't get past a couple of seconds exposure without over exposing the image. I was aiming for a fifteen second exposure or thereabouts. The other problem I have is that I am using a 28-80 film kit lens on a crop frame camera, so I was not able to quite get as much into the image as what I wanted. So at some point I will return as there are a number of good subjects around this area and it is not to far from home.

    With the other site, no I have not returned to that particular site, hopefully this weekend is looking good for a visit.

    Gary

    Here is another image converted to Mano. This one is from Saga, Tibet shot in the early hours of morning.

    I think I have a fix for your need for longer exposure, do you have any neutural density filters (you can get cheap ones off of EBAY) as these will increase your exposure time with out increasing the brightness or use a polarizing filter as you can cut down two stops of light with it.

    I did hand hold a ND10 filter in front of the lens. While I was there, I also tried hand holding two ND filters in the front of the lens, but I got some pretty unusual results, so I gave up on that idea. I do have a filter holder that holds a polarizer as well as ND filters that screws into the filter thread on the lens. I am not confident to mount this on the front of my lens and shoot away. Once I upgrade my wide angle to something that has a little less plastic, and is built a little stronger, I will have another go. Or I can give it a go under a full moon. I have done that before.

    I was thinking about what you have done and ask the question, what time of day did you take the shot was it mid morning to middle of the day as this is the brightest time of the day. Thinking along these lines if you were to take the same shot say early in the morning or later in the evening then you could use a slower shutter speed with out the stated problems . This is a bit left of center as a solution but one way around the issues. PS. if you are there a bit earlier you might as well grab a nice sunrise or a bit later a sunset shot. Just a thought, regards Craig S.

    I was there midday. I could do an early morning as well. I am pretty sure I would be looking in the direction of East to grab this shot. I was out there again today, but the wind and tide was wrong. So I went to plan B, and we done a short drive down to some formal gardens. I will be posting a few from that location.

    And a cropped version but a different image.

    More to come from the same location.

    I think this would have been a goer in the last comp they had

    I like both of them, the shot itself was pretty cool
