project 52 | week 16 - street photography

How to effectively and enjoyably utilize the lunch break downtown in St. Louis? Bring your photo gear and go out for a short walk! :) Harsh, very sunny mid part of the day gave me the opportunity to try again my very very dark 10 f stops Neutral density filter. So in the middle of the day I was able to have my shutter opened for 30 sec and get so beautiful velvet/creamy look of white moving clouds. Is it "street-ish" enough?

And just for a comparison, how really 10 f stops ND filter makes difference, enclosed our two other examples of the very same composition. Left one is a normal exposure, right one is HDRed to get more details from the clouds. I still prefer the one above. What's your view? Let me know.


  1. I photo! What lens did you use?

  2. Hey Tina! Thanks for stopping by ;) It was shot with my wide angle Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 at DX format Nikon D7000. Great lens by the way! I never though I can have so much fun with wide angles and story telling...
