What do you do when you go out for a dawn shoot and there is no colour in the sky and it turns out boring? Well, after the sun comes up, whack a 2.4 ND (8-stop) filter and polariser in front of your lens.

This shot is near Jibbon Head in the Royal National Park just south of Sydney, looking towards the beachside suburb of Cronulla.

Next time, I will try it without the polariser as it makes the sea too dark and the sky too uneven. The worst bits have been cropped out.

This shot was taken with an Olympus E-P1 and Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm lens set to 9mm. Apart from the ND2.4 and polariser, the details are ISO250, for 1 second and f/7.1.

Peter, I always love to look at your photographs and really appreciate your including the details, both technical and physical, of your set ups. Gorgeous and in my opinion that polarizer did just fine, but I realize you're the artist!
