This was just an amazing Sunset at Wilson's Promontory, looking towards Norman Island from Whiskey Bay with the bank of clouds turning from bright orange to a deep pink and then light blue over the course of 30 minutes. The light from the clouds was also then reflecting on to the rocks and the entire scene above-it was quite a sight!

Hello photo fans, it’s really amazing how fast this area changes its face. The new jewel of the area around the Oberbaum Bridge is the Cuvry Campus, which you can see on the left of the whole photo.
To get some clearer reflections and a soft dynamic effect in the clouds I needed to shoot a long exposure of 234,0 seconds. The longer the time, the softer the clouds and the water.

Summer Dreams

I took this image last summer in Spain.
This bay in Asturias is very special due to its shell shape. The water is turquoise and white foaming, surrounded by high cliffs and a breathtaking landscape. I combined Haida ND 4.5 and ND 1.8 filters, in order to be able to expose longer while having the sun in the frame, without getting directly overexposing areas.

Multiple exposure long exposures for full dynamic range.
Taken with Nikon D780 and 14-24 and Haida Filter ND 4.5 and 1.8 combined.

Landscape and sun part in the sky: 1/80s, f/11, ISO 100

Water and sky: ND 4.5, ND 1.8, ISO 400, 240s, f/11

Water and sky second exposure: ND 4.5, 120s, f/11, ISO 400


This image is taken at WeAreRAWPhotography, all day Mornington Peninsula photo tour with our highly enthusiastic students from our mentor program. The sky looked not very promising for the highlight of the day - sunset shooting with Haida Filter. But then in a split of a second when the sun dropped behind the horizon some amazing light appeared with colors out of this world.
I love to teach and transfer my knowledge I gathered during the years. And as a reward my students reminding me about my early start with long exposure photography. So excited to see the results and just one more click please ... 8 minutes later.
And still today I am like my students, take one more!

Malaysia has some of the most beautiful islands in the world. Gem Island, Terengganu located on the east coast of Malaysia, as the name suggests, is truly a gem.
One could photograph sunrise and sunset in a single location. I spotted this unique location near the hotel, where the sun would rise just behind the little hill.
I reckoned it will be nice to try out the Haida Red Diamond .6 GND filter, the Haida Polarizing filter, and the Big stopper as well. I stacked all of them together effortlessly.
To my delight, the exposure came out very well, with virtually no color cast, and the highlights were not burnt out.

Every person experiences ups and downs in his life. I think this is a situation out of human control. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you don't get what you want. One cannot know exactly what will be better for him. In fact, the story of this perfect photograph or the story of all perfect photographs is very similar to the conditions in human life. There have been many times I went to very wonderful places and returned without taking a proper photo because the weather conditions were not favorable. But this time everything was perfect for photography and I did not miss this opportunity. This is a situation that we do not have. Conditions are not always perfect. Sometimes everything goes well, but sometimes everything goes bad. The important thing is to be able to stand upright in all conditions.
