An unusual dusk at Apollo Bay Victoria, March 2011. My graduated filters don’t usually give me a colour cast, ever, but something seemed to happen this time (perhaps in conjunction with such a long shutterspeed) exaggerating the pink tones of the opposite setting sun.

Shot with a Canon 7D, 10-22mm lens, B+W polariser and Lee filters.

Shutter: 121 seconds
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 100

    Nice shot. My Cokin filters give me colour casts all the time. But that’s just because they’re cheap. Just can’t afford to upgrade at the moment.

  • Cheers Glen! Yeah I’ve always heard/seen about the Cokins, which is why I kinda skipped that step. Really puzzling with the Lee’s though (does age do this? LOL)

    Sea mist and long exp Jase,,great comp mate!

  • Cheers Dale! I gotta say, through my whole stay in Victoria I didn’t encounter much sea/salt spray at all (perhaps less salt concentration in the sea due to antarctic waters) whereas up in QLD I sometimes get mental salt spray. I just realised it could be a combination of the long exposure and also the polariser catching the light as the sun shines into the atmosphere at an unusual angle.

    One would pine for color casts if they all ended up looking this good!

  • Cheers Tula! Though I think the real sky actually looked better – magentas not as saturated! :)

    You can see the mist rolling in down in Dport and it is SO pink on a long exp and with HiTech grads I should get a brownish cast?? I quite like the pink tho mate.

  • Cheers Dale! I don’t mind it, it just seems a little over the top! Brownish cast with hitech grads? That’s gotta be a little strange!
