    Well, in honour of the new photography forum, and because I haven't had a chance to post much lately, I thought I'd toss in a few shots I took last fall from Algonquin Provincial Park (and one from Kincardine).

    Thanks for the comments - and sorry for the delay in getting back to check! :)

    Dekka, for the second shot, I used a combination of filters: A colour intensifier, a Neutral density filter and a Graduated ND filter so I could get a really long exposure and smooth out the ripples in the water.

    How I've missed seeing photos from you, Andrew!

    How do you stack/use multiple filters at a time like that?

    Unfortunately I didn't do any fishing when I was there, but I'm hoping to make this an annual tradition. The park is still beautiful, though there's more photographers than there are moose now-a-days ;)
    Hey Zoom,

    I've missed being here regularly over the last year. Come April or May though, I may just be able to go back to one job and spend a bit more time both here and with the camera :D

    I took a few shots that evening so once I had the filters I wanted set up from the first shot, I just kept the holder on the lens. The only adjustments I had to make to them after that was to remove the holder to focus, put the holder back on and then line up the transition of the GND to the horizen (quicker than it sounds).

    Awesome photos!!!!

    I usually try and make it up there every couple of years or so... I love it, landscape photography is not something I do well so I sure love seeing photo's from others who do:D

    Actually Chaz has been hard on my confidence... I thought I was a not bad hobby photographer until I came here!!! ;)

    Thanks Renee & LauraLeigh.

    LauraLeigh,

    Brighton isn't too hard on the eyes either. Lorri, the kids and I went there for a few days last summer and had a ball at Presqui'lle. I think the only one who didn't enjoy it was Jake. He seemed to be favored by the local mosquito population and his poor nose looked like a mountain range when we got back. :D

    The first two remind me of a story I'm writing. They could almost be the setting I've described.
