    Film days - I had a Cokin kit - I could slide filters in and out easily
    also a screw on Polariser - but
    Nowadays it's all so much more expensive, and the kit doens't fit anything I use

    Thank you for all the advice. Now I just need to prise that wallet from the depths of my pocket and buy a set of filters and holder. Seams like about $200USD is the go, Cokin or Lee the brands to get?

    Lee for the filters. Some people also like the Hitech filters, but I'm not one of them. You could get a Cokin holder though to save a few bucks. You could also try bracketing exposures, but it will cost you more time in the editing room.

    Wonder if I can still get a compatable Cokin holder - bet I can't! - mine
    doesn't fit most of my lenses - I think it was 10= back in the day...

    Very nice. I like the dynamic element introduced by the water. I have thought that the dynamic elements are frequently what makes a landscape (or maybe any picture) good, the more fleeting the moment/light the better. Well, not always, but in a great many cases.

    No more landscapes for me for a while. In the part of China I'm in it would be a debate over whether the landscape or lighting is worse, so I'll hone my people skills maybe. (Of course, it might be possible to get a good landscape sometime, I have heard the Yellow River is nearby).

    What are you doing in China. In my mental image of you I'd always assumed you were a yank. Funny how the internet makes fools of us - or me and my assumptions at least.

    Nice shot again Lukas.

    Nice shot Lukas - what filters did you use on that one?
    Geoff I found an excellent stand at Focus on Imaging by a company called SRB-griturn.com they had all sorts of accessories & loads of filters. The lady I talked to about extension tubes was extremely knowledgable unfortunately they had sold out of 4/3rds ones However in the catalogue I picked up they seem to have a wide range of Cokin filters & adaptors all very cheap, maybe one would fit your old system to bring it back into life. I'm starting to think about slide in filters myself from Lukas' advice. I was originally going to buy a screw on NDgrad but am thinking twice now & may go for a Cokin type. Final comment looking at the Lee filters stand - they may be good but wow they are pricey, definately out of my league.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them
