Nikon D90 - Sigma 10-20 @ 11 mm - f/16 - 15 sec - Soligor CPL - Cokin P154 - Cokin p197 (handheld) - NEF - Capture NX 2.2.6 - PS/CS2
This year (2012) the autumn forest shots were kinda messed up by nature in Hungary - the long and warm September-October delayed the golden part by 2 weeks to the middle of November, and the windy-rainy weather also destroyed it early, withing 1 week. Sadly I can only submit the autumn shots from last year only.
Here I tried to make the exposure as long as possible (to show the slow streaming movement of the leaves on the pond) with the perspective as wide as possible. Even here I felt how restricting the Cokin P system feels on ultrawide angles: at f/16 I'm already 2 steps into diffraction territory, but using a stronger ND filter would have required to include another filter between the lens and the filter holder, restricting the angle of view to ca. 14mm focal lenght. Yet another reason to get the Lee system... *sigh*
