I hope this is a right place for this question.
Is it possible to use both circular polarizer and GND filter (Lee) on my Zeiss 21mm without vignetting ?

I mean stacking first a circular polarizer (with a front thread) and then the Lee Holder with just one filter (GND) ?

thanks a lot for your advice !


aran, I've often used the combination of polarizer and GND on my 21ZE. But I've a slim polarizer without front thread and just handhold the Lee filter.
The combination Lee holder with a normal filter (ND or UV) works also perfectly on the 21, but I've never tried this with a polarizer with front thread.

Thanks, Prosep.

Jojomon, lovely portrait with the new 35. That lens is very tempting for me wright now..

Smridevan, excellent series but the last one sticks out for me. very surreal!

Melbmanu, I just love how the 50 MP renders in your shot. Too bad I have the 58 Nokton already

Rajan, just excellent! I like it a lot for the simplicity.

Nice to see this thread keeps on producing top quality images! Since I'm on the sunrise/sunset theme. Here's one with the 100MP from yesterday morning.

Great shots everywhere. This is why I keep coming back to this site to give my eyes some feasts.

Bobring - Lovely color captured with 21 from Vermont. Beautiful bridge in the background. Good that bridge survived Irene ( hope that is the case )
Jim - As always, perfect composition. Great eyes. Love the shot
frezeis - Lovely bokeh from 28. Very nice color scheme.
Lars - Yeay, great to see your work. Beautiful detail.
Jojomon - nice portrait
Smridevan - Very nice set. Works perfectly as a set. Makes me wonder whether that is a permanent installation, btw.
melbmanu - White background makes this shot really stand out to me. Did you hold the ball up by some device from the back, or you caught this in motion ?
Rajan Parrikar - Very pretty shot. Love the green.
Bob - Great sunset shot.
Ron - Wonderful shots from Highline. I love the color and lighitng. First shot is almost surreal. Beautiful work

rscheffler,

are those colors OOC from the M9, or you did some tweaking later on? I've always liked your entries on the M9 thread, especially the colors & tones.

Thanks guys!

Everything I post has been tweaked to some degree.

In LR I generally apply around +35 contrast and +30 clarity. Additionally I tweak the tone curve to generally make it more aggressive, more contrast, usually compressing the shadow zones and brightening upper mid tones. Depending on the scene, I will tweak the hue and saturation of various colors. I find the M9 sometimes is too weak with blue skies and I will shift the hue to pull excessive magenta (seems to depend a lot on the lens used as well) and often also some negative luminosity of the blue setting, which I consider to be my quick and dirty polarizing filter solution.

Both of the images posted above received selective burning/dodging.

In general I don't post sooc images unless it's to illustrate a technical issue. Sooc images IMO look very digital. Shadows are quite open and the files are often too flat for my liking.

Having used the M9 now for over 6 months, compared to my Canon bodies, I feel it does respond differently to tweaks in post. I think I can push the low ISO M9 files more before running into problems, and when I shoot the same scenes side by side, find I can never tweak images from one to match the other - there are too many variables involved with different bodies and lens systems. It's possible I've also over processed some of the images I've posted in the past with too much fill light combined with a strong clarity setting, for example. But it can work for some images, and depends on my mood. It's definitely a learning process.

IMO most of the images in the various camera/lens threads here are more so indications of photographic talent in respect to both image composition as well as post production than sheer camera/lens capability. Certainly the rendering of a specific camera/lens combination is important, but it is often enhanced or muted by a given photographer's interpretation and skill in post. Meaning, if you like images you see here from a given camera/lens combination, there is no guarantee you will get matching results with your own post production workflow.

Rajan very nice! was this taken atop a bridge or vehicle?
Bob nice sunset shot, the 100 looks familiar
Ron nice as always really loving the second shot lovely sky
R Young very calming shot and really strong tones that goes well with this
Awesome Jim love the simplicity of this, strong contrast works really well here

Thanks Boris !
Did you use the wide angle adaptor when using Lee with the 21 or the normal adaptor is OK ?

I use the wide angle adaptor and only two slots in my holder.
