I need to save the pennies for some ND filters for my Hitech filter system...
Or get a bit of welding glass for £1.50
https://www.diyphotography.net/use-welding-glass-as-10-stops-nd-filter/

Certainly worth a bash for a few quid.  Then epoxy it to a large stepping ring? http://www.thephotoforum.com/threads/how-to-diy-10-stop-nd-filter-with-welding-glass-under-20.361479/

I wonder how good the SRB ND1000 filters are for around £35 (for a cokin P holder?)

Always shoot RAW and take a test shot with a white-balance card in case you need to correct any colour-cast.  It's lack of colour-cast that seems to justify high priced ND filters.  Even so it's worth shooting a white-balance test shot.
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

Went out today to try some macros with canon 18-55mm kit lens & extension tubes. Every sodding image turned out soft.  Perhaps a tripod should have been used as well.....

A post post work trip down to North Queensferry, to take an arty shot of Kevin:



And the old dear:


Shame about the green splotch of lens flare from the moon.  Why can't Canon include a lens hood with the Canon 10-18mm lens?  >:(

Boxing day TT. This year I thought I'd use the monster zoom. Perfect weather for it.
