Trying to make up for a crap landscape I posted the other day. I couldn't get any color edit on this that I liked, so I converted it to b&w.

I'd be interested to see this with a neutral density filter and a long exposure, or at least on a day with a clear sky. In a black and white photo, the textures really stand out and to me the water is rough, the hills are rough, and the sky is rough. A smooth sky and lake would make the tower and hills stand out a lot more.

I think the b&w did the photo justice. I like it a lot.

Of course you do. You do know there's a simple acid test for determining whether or not you need a particular piece of gear, right?

Do you have it? No? Well then clearly you need it. Do you have it? Yes? How many? Only one? Clearly you need a second as a back-up; not having a spare is almost as foolish as not having one to begin with!

Now slow down there!! I'm just a babe-in-the-woods here! I heard one guy say go fixed, because you'll be constantly having to remove the ND for adjustments and all. But can't you just dial down a variable to zero for your other adjustments, then dial it back up, without having to remove it? Of course, I see the variable's are a good bit more expensive too! What are the costs for fixed ND "holders"? Thanks!

The square and rectangular filters offer so much more flexibility. I'm sure a variable ND is convenient, but I also wanted the ability to use it in conjunction with graduated neutral density filters. I made a thread all about plate filters. You can search my recent started threads, but I can link you to it tomorrow if I remember.

So, just for fun here, say I just wanted a basic setup to get started. Could I get away with getting a............. Lee Big Stopper 10-stop ND Glass 100x100mm.......... a Lee filter holder............... and a Lee 82mm adapter ring, because I'll be using my Canon 24-70 II? Is this enough to get started, and a viable setup? What would I want to add at a later time?

Easily. Then you could add a little stopper, maybe a 0.9 or 1.2ND(3 and 4 stops, respectively), a set of graduated ND's(soft), then a hard set, then a reverse GND, then the possibilities are endless!

Just do it. If you like landscapes, you'll love the filters.
