Hoya ND400 filter – review

For those interested in a neutral density filter, I have put together a short review of the one I use, the Hoya ND400 9-stop ND filter. You can find the review here, or you can find all my reviews on the Reviews page.

Winter’s day in Bojnice

Where is the snow? That I was in Bojnice in December, was just a coincidence, as we stopped there on the way back to Bratislava. But if there was snow, this could look so as from a fairy tale. Like in Frozen :)

Still this photo is a little less colorful than my other photos, but every time I added more saturation, it felt fake. I try to give a photo a look of what I have seen, and it just didn’t feel right. This is a manual blend in Photoshop from 5 exposures, using luminance and painted masks.
