Yes, more sand ripples!

















Sand ripples and clouds, Dorcas Bay, Bruce Peninsula National Park


I couldn't resist the dramatic clouds that rolled in a couple nights ago! I shot this from a slightly higher perspective than the photo in the previous post..... and managed to stay dry for a change!

EOS 1Ds mark III, TS-E 24mm II tilt-shift lens; Singh-Ray LB warming polarizer & 2 stop hard edge ND grad (4x6" size, handheld in front of lens); mirror lock-up and cable release; Exposure: ISO 100; 2.5s at f/18

  7. I got an excellent question for you about the filters you use. Now i just recently brought a Cokin P series holder and the thing im really confused about is the singh ray filters. I would really like to get two singh ray filters. but the thing i dont know about the sizes. Now my camera size is a 52mm and so the question is does my 52mm size fit in with the P Holder size? or the 4x6 size that is offered on the singh ray site? or should i be looking for a exact 52mm size filter? i know this sounds really confusing but i would really like to know what you think. p.s. awesome photos. Their really great.

  8. Hi Jesse,
    Thanks for your kind words.
    You should be able to get a Cokin adapter ring for the P-series holder to fit each of your leses.
    For the Singh-Ray ND grad filters, I'd suggest getting standard "P" size filters - which will fit the P-series holder. The front lens element on your lens is fairly small at 52mm, so I don't think there would be benefit going to the larger 4x6" filters (which don't fit the P-series holder).

    If you are buying polarizers (I consider them essential for landscape photography), go for the sprocket-type designed to fit in the P-series holder.

    This solution means you can use the same filters for various lenses using the P-series holder... a very efficient and effective filter system.

    I hope this helps!
    Ethan

  9. Ethan hey,

    I did manage to get the holder and filters for it. Got the NGD Kit for P-series holder and they work great. probably not as great as the Singh-Rays but will do for now. Thanks for the help.
