Firstly, merry christmas!
Just returned from a trip to Hong Kong and got the opportunity to head out of the city for a walking tour in the Hong Kong Global Geopark of China. The scenery was great so I strongly recommend it to anyone going to HK, definitely a change from the shopping and busy streets.
I got round the shooting the sunset and found that I got very weird results. Both weren't proper shots (just put the camera on a rock and hoped for the best) so do pardon the composition.
This first shot was a test shot. 1/30", f/16, ISO 100, manual WB at 10000K, with a GND 0.9 (dark part to the sky)
Second shot was with a B+W ND110. 30", f/8, ISO 100, manual WB at 10000K, also with the same GND in the same position
I guess I can accept that the exposures are more than 10 stops apart as the sky was getting darker. But what is quite puzzling is that the colours are extremely different. Also, the vignetting on the latter shot is really very pronounced. I've used the 10 stop ND before (sometimes for sunrise or normal day shots) and the results, comparing with and without filter, have been different but only slightly (usually with a slight brownish tinge when the filter was used). Is this correctable? Or could it also be some auto setting on the camera's response to the filter?
I know nothing much can be done about it and the red is actually pretty nice, but would just like to know what's going on. And if this is a common 'problem' faced by all ND110 users.
Thanks in advance (:
