I’ve got one, have you?
Well no landscape or architecture photographer worth their salt goes out without one these days do they ? 😉
It is the current fad – that surreal sky, those misty sea shores… you simply have to use them…
They are genuinely interesting to use, and I have on occasion used one commercially to make “people disappear” from photos.
So looking back at this photo of Clarence Dock, which it was called then, I wondered what it would have looked like with a 10-stopper.

- If you’ve understood the theory of how to do the sky, you could apply it to the water – so that part would be superfluous.
