Cloud Filter Test Results…..”Yeah, cloud!”

As a follow-up to the last blog entry. Weather finally eased up a bit yesterday in Massachusetts. I headed down to Dodge Park in Worcester, armed with the Model 230, the # 516, and some FP-3000B. There is a Windows Live commercial running in the States where a man and a woman at an airport want to catch up with the latest episode of the fictitious “Celebrity Probation”, and the woman finds it, and after watching it, proclaims, “Yeah, cloud!”. That is what the author said yesterday, after taking the following shots. Yeah, cloud!-

Across the street from Dodge Park is something that looks like something out of a Batman movie. This is the famous OddFellows Home, slated towards demolition. While photographing, part of the roof collapsed, from the excessive weight of the daily snowstorms.

This shot taken with one notch towards darken:

Many digital SLR’s, such as my Nikon D300, seem to, by default, shoot “hot”. I get many blown out skies. None here, really. This little filter really does work nicely. Yeah, cloud!
