Playing with the CP Filter...



Here are a couple of pictures using the CP Filter. The first picture is of  Ala Moana Beach at 10mm with the Sigma 10-20 and CP filter. the second picture is of Waikiki and Diamond Head at 18mm with the Nikon 18-300 and CP filter. Except for a slight crop to get rid of vignetting on the first picture and resizing both pictures are as shot.

Interesting to note that I saw very few people taking pictures with DSLR cameras this visit to Oahu. I actually felt a little out of place with my great big camera and lenses... More and more people using their cell phones I'm thinking!

  1. Your photos are lovely. I think I am in the very small minority of people who do not have a cell phone.

  3. CP filter??? You have a CP filter? LOL

    Did you make another trip to Oahu or are these from an older trip? I really like the top shot.

    Cell phones are great for snap shots but if you want to print something you better have a "real" camera with you.

    1. Yup did a quick one week visit to Oahu, like I said "Blame it on Ron!" Have come to the conclusion that one week is definitely not long enough to call a real holiday... Next trip will be two weeks minimum!

    2. One week is definitely NOT enough time but it is better than no time at all in Hawaii!

  4. Certainly enhanced the white clouds and blue sky. Nice touch
    I've got one but seldom take time to remember to use it.
    Thanks for the reminder!

  5. Did not know you have made a quick get away trip! These are nice! Did you shot any photo with ND filter? I'm still counting my days until my trip to Kauai this summer. This time we going to stay there for 11 days, and hopefully I can hookup with Val one day to shoot the hidden spot of Kauai.

    1. Regretably I still don't own any ND fiters... But that's definitely next on my list of gear to buy!
      Hmm, hidden spot ok Kauai, sounds interesting... You need someone to carry your gear? Ha ha!

  7. Great shots! The filter really makes the sky pop in both pictures.
