Thanks, Trace. I might try a long exposure from here later this summer to capture the sunset. But first I need some GND filters, I suppose :)

Hey Keld, I think the character of the shore would certainly be good for that. I know quite a few people choose to apply the gnd digitally now through photoshop and/or simply blend multiple exposures to get a similar effect. I enjoy/prefer using my filters at the time of capture though. Look forward to seeing more of the location :)

Actually I do have one of those filters and also used it for this shot, but the effect seems to be very modest. It's a Cokin P121S Gradual Neutral Grey G2 Soft (ND8) and I can clearly see it in the viewfinder, but it doesn't make much difference to the actual shot. I'll probably have to do some additional blending of two or more exposures to get the desired effect, but I don't mind experimenting a bit, so I hope to get it right after some trial and error :)

Yes, I found the soft grads are not that especially useful at the few minutes either side of sunrise when the light on the horizon is most intense. I have found I need the 3 stop soft or better yet the 2 stop reverse gnd for most of the skies I've metered here. From my limited experience so far, the 2 stop soft has been great for the more overcast days when the sky is still metering more brightness than the landscape but the intensity on the horizon is not there. Trouble with the reverse or hards is when there be trees or mountains "in the way"... LOL... always fun :lol:

Thanks for sharing your experiences, Trace. I'm looking forward to some new challenges, but I might have to consult you again when I get to the actually shootings :)
