Hi All, Welcome to my photoblog. Please feel free to add a comment. If you like my work you can also have a look at Andrew Atkinson Photography.
Thanks for looking
Looks oh so calm and peaceful, with a surprising amount of colour in the foreground.
Still prefer the b&w version though.

@Adela Fonts: Thanks Adela, I've never thought of the format like a Polaroid.
It seems so pure environment.
This is just an illusion, created by this excellent picture.

It's a lovely photo Andrew and you did really well getting colour this nice with the strong nd filters you will have been using during the 3 minute exposure.

@Ian Bramham: Thanks Ian, I have to say that the colour rendition from the D800 is better than my D700 when using the strong ND's.
excellent work, stunning in fact.

Andrew - re colour rendition when using strong nd filters for long exposures - do you use auto-wb or do you set it yourself? Ian.
8 Oct 2012 8:54pm
@Ian Bramham: Ian, I use auto-wb as i always have in the back of my mind that i will be converting to B&W. However have now changed my thoughts due to the lack of colour cast. When i first started to use 10 stop ND's I had a big stopper that gave a cast which was correctable using PS, however I broke that. It was replaced with the Hitech version which had such a bad colour cast I sent it back for testing and it came back concluding is was ok. So I put myself on the waiting list for a Big Stopper.
When I got it I noticed that the colour cast was virtually gone, i do make some very slight adjustments but nothing compared to what I use to have to make. I do know that the filters do have some variances between each one so Im not sure if I've just been lucky.
Quite an unexpected surreal feel! Almost ethereal and such a drama is the interplay of the heavenly beach and the steel works in the distance! Marvelous work!

@hugo poon: Thanks Hugo
A real stunner, I have just got myself a 10stop nd bw. I love it, it's great fun, but I just need to get out a use it now

@Alun: Thanks, Im sure you will enjoy it
Interesting discussion regarding colour casts, I was experimenting the other day using 2 X 8 stop NDs from different manufacturers. Like yourself I knew my intention was to convert to black and white, however, as I always shoot RAW files I am never really too bothered about setting white balance in daytime as it is so easily corrected in Adobe Camera Raw. I was surprised at how far the colours had shifted towards the magenta end of the scale though, I'll have to repeat the exercise using just one filter at a time to discover which one is the culprit.

@Curly: Good idea Curly. If I had the time I would shoot a grey card or white paper and build a custom white balance
Stunning milky water around the rocks, thank you for your comment and tips!
