A long exposure

Image taken with Nikon D800E and Nikon 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 lens using a 10 stops B+W 110ND filter. This is the only thing that I miss on the 14-24, not being able to use this fantastic ND filter.


I altered the color for a more artistic look, and I had a good reason for that. For one more time I forgot to block the viewfinder during the long exposure, and I got a magenta cast on the photo. I should probably tape a note on the camera to remember that, since I’ve ruined many daily long exposures this way !!

    Why do you need to block the viewfinder? Is there light leakage? Does that happen with D600? Best Angus

      With the D700 I didn’t have a ant problems at long exposures during daylight, the D800 show a magenta cast if I don’t close the viewfinder (probably light entering). I don’t know about the D600, I hadn’t a chance to shoot with it. Both the D700 and D800 have a curtain that blocks the viewfinder, so its just a simple process of remembering to do it, I don’t know if the D600 has that switch.
