      Great idea -- love the innovation and the result. Gotta get me a little welding glass now. There's that waterfall down the road that I'm eager to try this on.

      Very creative usage to get the effect of a ND filter! Though not optically superior, definitely solves the purpose here :)

      Which welding glass did you use? I used a 11 grade welprotext (made in germany) glass to shoot the solar eclipse but it was a disaster and finally had to switch to xray films. The welding glass just spoils the shot.

      ^ It was a grade 10, bought from a eBay seller called darkmullen or similar. Works for me!

      Very nice shot. May i know what's the custom white balance you used in this shot? I'm gonna try this welding glass filter. Happy shooting always.

      I got my welding glass off of Amazon. It gives it a strong green tint. I tried custom WB to no avail. The glass was super cheap (~$10) so it was worth it. But, just FYI, some welding glass is better than others in terms of tint.
