I got this B+W filter, and other filters from Christmas present. I did not get a chance to test these filters out until last winter storm from last week. I took these shots from walking distance from my house. I'm very impressed how the filter handled the lighting when I shoot against the Sun like you see on the bottom picture. It was very cold day so I did not want to stay out long to setup my tripod. Therefore, the sharpness is not as good as I expected.
