I don't think it's your code. I think it's flickr. I've been having lot of problems recently seeing some pics hosted on flickr. Doesn't matter if I use IE or FF. Right now I'm on your flickr page in IE and I can see your fireworks pics, but not this one. Weird.

Ok, I can see the full size image, but no other sizes. The other sizes don't even attempt to load. Really weird.

In any case, kudos to you and the future Mrs. Seminole.

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.
