* Oak Park Dawn, with Grads. June 10 2014

This Dawn shoot took place on the 4th June, 2014. with regular Kevin Weir in attendance. This shoot was special for me, because it was my 1st  shoot with my new 3-stop Graduated ND Filter. This Filter is intended to hold back the Sky in my pre-Dawn images, enabling faithful reproduction of the foreground, giving my images maximum impact. I'm very pleased with the result ... ! To demonstrate the effect; the above image is pre-Filter, the below image is post-Filter. BIG difference ...!
