p.1 #1 · Big Sur Coast w/some 10-stop love


Made the hour trip out to the GarrapataPark south of Carmel mid afternoon.
Clouds were a no-show, but I expected that from the forecast.
Here some pre & post sunset images with 10-stop applied to a few.

Here is the "normal" shot






Same scene w/10 stop, @ 30sec






After sunset, 20 minutes. Fog started to come in, hence a lower contrast






Would definitely like some suggestions for taming the color cast with the 10-stop
edit-Tried the ACR w/b method, doh

C&C

Thanks
Dan

10 Stop looks good to me. I just usually play around with the white balance manually in Lightroom.

Are you using the Lee Big Stopper, or a screw in?

The cast doesn't look like a Lee Big stopper. Maybe a B+W or Hitech? I use the B+W ND110 and I usually just mess with the WB. Since you have the non filtered shot as a references you can also mess around with WB, sliders, etc to try and match it as close as possbile. Photoshop CS can be a good tool for that. Also sometimes I'll use one of the filters in Nik CEP4, which can be helpful.

As far as your shots I like #3 the best besides it being a litlte underexposed IMO. Some adjustments in curves/levels could help it too. If you have a cable release I would have tried a longer exposure, 60 sec, 120 sec or even longer.

I like the color cast... The 3rd image is gorgeous! Very inspiring.
Don't have Lee filters, but Cokin, Singh Ray and Heliopan. Heliopan (especially the Heliopan ND 3.0 = 10 stops) as well as some Cokins can cause heavy color cast (e.g., http://www.fotoblur.com/images/481985), but I have to admit, I sometimes like that effect a lot. Agree to Scott: I just play around as well with white balance, color and color temperature using the RAW converter (PS 5.1).

2nd image is my pick - has the perfect balance of "mistyness" and golden highlights throughout the scene.

boingyman, actually it is a Lee Big Stopper
I have finally figured out how to get things close to realistic/normal with the white balance tool in ACR

I have another. I agree that the 2nd is the best ballance of light/color & movement.
Now the focal length I take this at is the next discovery.

Thanks for the comments.
