  • River Don Long Exposure

    This is the River Don near our house.
    I spend most of my life here walking the dog, photographing our local wildlife etc so be prepared for an overload of River Don images in the future
    Yesterday I tried a variable ND filter on the Oly 9-18.
    I came to the conclusion that VND filters don't work too well with wide angle lenses

    Seems to work pretty well to my eyes Mike. What don't you like about it?

      Thanks Paul
      The edges appear darker than the centre.
      I had to lighten the shadows at both ends.
      As you can see, the sky on the right is a different colour from the rest despite the sky being a uniform grey.
      I don't dislike the image, in fact I quite like it, but I hink I'll stick to my Big Stopper for this sort of image.
      Incidentally, I used this filter on my EF-m 18-55 and it worked fine

          It is a well known effect on variable ND filters as they are two polariser filters.

          Why use ISO 100?

          Just under 1 second would have worked better IMO.

            I'm pretty new to this Alf
            I've only had the E-M1 for a couple of weeks so I was experimenting
            With the speed and volume of water at the moment, there isn't a huge difference between a 1s and 2s exposure

            As I mentioned earlier I quite like this image and I'll continue to use the filter but not on such a wide angle lens.

            Great Flickr Photostream btw

              Mike I like the shot too. I thought the darker edges did well in focussing the interest but I can see why you'd find it annoying if you hadn't done it deliberately.

                Ironically, I always add a vignette to my images

                      Nice shot. It's not unusual to get vignetting when using filters with wide angle lenses, even the slim ones. Should be easy enough to correct in lightroom or such like though.

                        Theres been a fair bit of post prosessing done to the edges of this shot ie lightening of shadows but all-in-all I quite like the effect.
                        The 9-18 is the only Olympus lens I own that this filter will fit
