Thanks guys!

The1; Yeah I had asked her parents for permission before hand and had told mine so they all knew it was coming. It was just a matter of letting them know once it was official.

nice shot Mario! If only it wasn't overexposed on the right side... an ND filter would've definitely helped here.

Thank you! I was using a 10 stop nd filter, 17 sec exposure I think. But it was about 3 PM in direct sunlight.. I tried so many different angles but still the same result.. I'll try to get a sunset shot soon!

oh wow... must've been really bright outside then. Either that, or your 10-stop ND isn't really 10-stops.

Even a 10-stop filter will overexpose because it's still an even light value across the frame. You would need a good grad filter to handle that exposure from the right side. Probably something like a Lee filter that you could move up and down.

Still a damn nice image. Loads of detail in the rocks.

Mark,why would it overexpose, as long as you correctly compensate for it in-camera?

I think that he made the right choice, to expose for the shadow of the rock. Sun sparkle on water really doesn't bother me and I would have left that there; however, I would have probably done this as HDR to get the sky darker. Either that, or composite the sky in OR bring the sky level way down in PS layers.

Putting a GND on the side is asking for trouble, IMHO. I might have tried my polarizing filter here.

A solid filter leaves the same ratio of light across the frame. Exposing for the shadows still leaves the bright areas over-exposed. You need to reduce exposure in one area while leaving other areas alone. Hence a GND.

True, it can really show up in the image if you're not careful. I have a B&W GND that has so little effect that I rarely use it. In this image the sun is so bright that you'd need a seriously high-stop filter and that would make it very difficult to smooth the falloff across the frame. I agree in this situation a second shot exposing for sky only would have been useful.

oh and nice shot mario. I think the overexposed part could not be reduced unless he took an HDR.. one shot for the rocks one in between and one for the sky, then combine. I like it better like this, its more natural..

Very bright, the filter is a B+W 110 ND 3.0

This is another view of my "tones in grayscale" entry, only this time in the original color. As you can see, there's not a whole lot of difference. A study in grays, only in shades of blue and green.
