Playing around with my recently acquired GW-3

Postby newmikey » Mon Jan 18, 2016 4:41 pm

Took my GR + GW-3 wide to a high vantage point over a very busy highway (for those who know a bit about the Netherlands: the A7 across the Afsluitdijk). The GW-3 has a 62mm thread but it vignets heavily with filters so I use a 72mm filter on a step-up ring. An ND1000 brought down shutter-speeds to 6, 15 and 30 seconds on a 3 shot exposure bracket. Combining the 3 as well as the relatively long shutterspeeds got rid of the traffic entirely!

As a bonus, a HDR consisting of 3 exposures of the inside of the belvedere (the "Monument") which is located at the point where the builders of this huge dam closed the final gap:

I like them both but particularly the second: I just love looking up stairwells and the blue and white works brilliantly!
Cheers!

I believe that it must have the best meaning.

Hello Mike,

I really like the photos you shot. However, I am not sure how you implemented "6, 15 and 30 seconds on a 3 shot exposure bracket". Did you use the "Multiple exposure" setting and dial in the shutter setting (6,15,30) for the shots? Or did you use the "Auto Bracket" setting three times?
I am using a GRD IV so perhaps the ability to change shutter speeds in bracketing is different to the GRII.
