Best seen on black, so hit the "L" key


So headed out around 5am this morning with the hopes of a decent sunrise and a chance to test my new 100x100mm Formatt-Hitech Firecrest IRND Filters both 10 & 16 Stops. The clouds that I'd hoped for and the BBC weather app had predicted were well of in the distance behind me so there was little hope of any cloud streaks. The River Thames however provided enough movement in this scene to not make it a wasted effort, as the tide was rushing back out to sea.

As the light levels were quite low I thought I'd start off with my 10 stop Firecrest and no word of a lie there was no colour cast and I've done very little in terms of editing to this image, just a few minor adjustments in LR5.


Hope you all had a great Easter Bank Holiday and look forward to catching up with your work over the coming week ;)
