Multnomah Falls - 5D3, 17 TS-E, f/16, 2.5s, ISO 100
Those that have visited the spectacular Multinomah Falls know that it can be a challenge to capture all of it in a single frame. I knew I wanted to photograph the water fall in the morning light before the sun got high enough to start making things too bright. I got there with my family (this was done during a family vacation) at around 8 AM and though much of the waterfall was in shade the sun was starting to illuminate the top a bit more. Normally this is no problem as it is easily fixed with a graduated neutral density filter. However, in order to capture everything including the very vibrant ferns in the foreground I needed to use my widest lens the 17 TS-E, which doesn't have filter threads and very large bulbous front element. This was the perfect time to try out the homebrew LEE filter adaptor for the 17 TS-E. I stacked a circular polarizer and a 2 stop graduated ND for this image and got no vignetting. I could even shift a couple of mm without vignetting. This is not a tool I'll use often but when the need arises, its useful.
