    Very cool. was this after sunset or before sunrise? does the 8GRadND filter help with the bright lights on the bridge? I want ot buy a filter like that, is it good or essential to have for low light long exposure shots?

  • Its about 1 hour after sunset. The 8Grad stops frok blowing out & the CP keeps the sky under control. Colours are due to the long exposure aswell. The ND filter is a must for long exposures bud. An 8grad adds 4 f stops to your aperture. Comes in very handy when shooting during the day. I have 2 8 grads. Stackable aswell. Definatly get yourself one bro

    Thanks Don, wildo, first I am going to get a new wide angle lens and then the filters as my current lens is a 72 diameter and the new one is 82 I think so the filters will not be interchangeable.

  • wow thats a massive wide angle. I need to look at getting a wider lense too.
