    Thanks, Nik. Just checked out your blog - some fine images there, and you do tuition as well. Good man.
     
  6. I love the tones, so maybe thinking it's time to use my red filter on something.

    They're all great, the first one is outstanding though, I love the sense of movement, and the birds being less blurry as they approach the centre really draws the eye in.

    Cheers, Andrew. It's the first time I used a red filter, and have now glued it onto the lens!
     
  8. I bought loads of filters when I got my Voitlander VitoB, orange red yellow, etc. But never got around to using them. My new Zeiss Ikon Nettar takes same 32mm hood/filter so I should really make an effort since I've got loads of B&W medium format!

    Good. I love my Zeiss Nettar, but don't have any filters...yet.

    Yeah - the first one is really special. Love the ariel viewpoint, the motion and the 3D impression of the birds and water in the center. Outstanding, Rob!

    Well, Dan, I did go down to the crossroads, and sold my should to the devil in return for a photographer's eye. I hope that photographer doesn't want it back...

    I was wondering were my 'should' had gone! ;)

    I've been forced to use shall for the last couple of years, and living in the present tense has been trying I can tell you!
