It’s back to images from my Filey trip for this week’s Friday image. This was shot from Filey brig and is a long exposure taken during the day. It’s a 6 second exposure which I captured on the Olympus EM5. I used a Hi-Tech 8 stop ND filter from their ProStop IRND range (here is the link to a 10 stop on amazon). I have to say that I am really impressed with these filters. They give a blue colour cast to the image but it’s really nice and something that I decided to accentuate in this shot. The image quality is very good and I am going to buy some more of these in different strengths to give me more choice. As I am using them with Micro 43 I only need the 67mm size so they become very affordable.

There is something about a simple image such as this that I find quite relaxing.

Hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

    Both the the blue cast and portrait aspect suit it, looks lovely. i bought a cheap ND8 and 720 IR to try on my RX100 when in Cprus on holiday, If I can get a photo anything like yours I will be happy.

      Thanks, I’m pleased you like the photos. And don’t forget your tripod. The exposures can get quite long, especially with the IR filter. Good luck and enjoy Cyprus.

    Beautiful colors, composition and processing. Love the shapes in the water.
