    It was too hot today to do anything productive. So I went to Griffith Park.

    In pic 4 how did you manage to capture the sky in bright sunlight. I know its mostly done in PP, but you need to have some blue in there for pp to work.

    Looks like a lot of post processing. I like the fountain one best. I assume thats an HDR image?

    Wow you noticed that. Awesome. It was indeed a very bright part of the day and normal exposures the sky was coming out as white as the water.

    I used a pair of Cokin Z filters Z123L (graduated sky blue) and a Z121L (graduated ND2) for a combined I think graduated 4 stop drop with slight blue tint. These filters are enormous and very cumbersome. But the always make the skys look awesome. Oh yeah they are acrylic and the static is ilke a magnet for dust. I ALWAYS have to photoshop out dust that sticks to the acrylic filters. I wish they made glass ones.

    Here's a shot from a hike I did on Saturday using that same filter setup. The sky here was NASTY as well. Completely grey/white and the filters probably are too dark and look too fake, but I like it. My thing is, if I have to lug around a stupid camera with really sensitive filters on the front that scratch, scrape, or catch on any piece of clothing I accidentally touch, I'm going to use that dark sky. It seriously is a pain to use these filters.

    Dude, you have no idea how annoying it is. Does anyone else use Cokin filters? I have to admit the results even after chopping is worth the nuisance. But barely.

    Below is the Z holder mounted on the 2 inch long 50mm with 52mm threads. Shit is enormous
