Can't wait to use it!

This is the ND filter I received yesterday and I am really looking forward to trying it out when my lens is fixed. Apart from UV filters, this is my first real filter for creative purposes!
It's always nice to add things to the old wish list, so tell me, which is your favourite filter?
Great macro shot. Any word on how long it will take to fix you zoom lens?

@jenniferruge No, not yet, hopefully in a week or two. I'm feeling a little restricted, but hope I learn something from the experience or only having a macro lens available!

yeah! i have a ND 8 filter and a polarizing filter. They are great. ND filters are way to go for long exposures during the day. :D

@kirstyalexandra here is the wiki explanation: ND (or neutral density) filters reduce and/or modify intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. It can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter. The purpose of a standard photographic neutral density filter is to allow the photographer greater flexibility to change the aperture, exposure time and/or motion blur of subject in different situations and atmospheric conditions.

Cool shot of your new filter! I need to get one of those. I have a polarizing filter that I love :)

I think I want one... do I want one Aleksandra? Is it good? How much was it?
posted May 16th, 2012  
@monika64 I think you want one...although I haven't tried it yet, I am pretty sure I will be using it a lot once my lens is fixed! Murphy's law: the day you receive something you've wish listed for a while, is the day the lens it will fit on will break! It will be about 2 weeks before I'll be able to try it out, hence all the macro shots the last few days as its the only working lens I have at the moment! I think it was around $180, but the price depends on the size of your lens.

If you shoot landscapes, then polarizes is a must, of course. Other then that, GND 0.9/0.6 and ND400 are great for sunrise/sunset and slow motion water, respectively.
