Chinese mix up

I think I am bit late for the Chinese New Year congratulations, I don’t even know exactly when it ends. And this picture was taken last year anyways. So let’s enjoy the intemporal look of that girl and try not to get mixed up further.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Happy Chinese New Year to you. The 1st day of this year Chinese New Year started on 3rd Feb. FYI, this is the year of Rabbit and wishing you well for all your upcoming trips.

    BTW, I bought the 60/1.2 lens today! Just curious, which ND filter do you use? 4X or 8X?

    Well, I got educated on the Chinese New Year with this pictures, thanks for the info ;)

    Norman, I use a 2X ND filter. I feel a 2 stops reduction is enough to cover any bright situation wide open, and it doesn’t penalize you too much when entering a shadow area, therefore you can leave it on as long as you are outside.

    never quite experimented with ND filters myself but would love to one day.
