Who the hell needs Photoshop aka digging deep in my old filter box

2010.11.19

You know the situation, a nice sky but the sun from the wrong side and this is the output. A lot of photoshopping is necessary or
pixel
same situation, the same minute, what changed is the use of a graduated grey filter
pixel
sunset situation without
pixel
and with this filter
pixel
If that should not flashy enough the graduated filter in pink helps you out
pixel
or both of them with different covering of the lens
pixel
or if you need some "end of times" mood both together

Yesterday I have cleaned up a bit the mess after moving from Germany to Georgia and felt over my filter box. So for those who do not like to photoshop at all a nice possibility to get nearly "ready for printing" pics out of the box.

krasotulichka Great idea to check the boxes! Very interesting tests!

revenant Fascinating set. Quite apocalyptic, really. Mr Nasty (i.e., me) would say that Photoshop would correct for the perspective distortion in a way no glass filter could... ;-)

revenant I'm only saying that because I have to justify the huge expense of buying Photoshop in some way!

DancingDolphin But then I would have one more thing to carry! You are so right though... on the rare occasion that I remember to carry, say my polarizing filter, I'm quite surprise at how much fun it can be. But mostly I'm lazy. :-) This was a fun post, thanks for experimenting and showing us the results!

????? Interesting set.
Thanks for the commercial info, too. Asap (?) I'll buy a new one as I crashed my polarized filter days ago (butter hands) :-(

Ole365 Very nice set!
I had a lot of Cokin filters when I used my old Nikon SLR, but it didn't fit my new camera. I bought my son a Nikon D5000 kit, and gave him my old filters. I hope he can use them as creative as you do here.

girafferacing These show the benefits of ND grad filters perfectly - reminds me I really must dig mine out of my box of camera gear!
