Shot this on a turn off just as you begin the ascent to Echo Lake from Idaho Springs, CO. Beautiful day, about 70 degrees, slight breeze, and partly cloudy.My first real test using an ND filter, I have to say I was happy with the results. I'd shot this same location last summer without the ND filter, and got less than stellar results: it was near noon, sunny skies, and of course so bright that you can't do anything but shoot with a really fast shutter speed.
