Hemoglobin by LukePotts Hemoglobin by LukePotts
I shot this image testing a 10 stop ND filter after a hike into the rainforest in pouring rain. The rain made it impossible to get anymore usable photos and I had to hold an umbrella over the camera to get this one photo after placing all my other gear under a ledge on the left hand side out of view. I couldn't focus with the dark filter so guessed the focus and it worked with the aperture used. Obviously the rain is invisible with the long shutter but it was chaos. I will get back up when it calms and try get the smaller rapids below.

Great photo! I don't have all that much experience shooting in the rain and certainly not in the kind of rain that you're describing so I'm sure it was quite the hardship. I am curious about something though, looking at the Exif. Is there a reason why this was shot at ISO 800? Were you getting too little light even at 75/1? I don't have a 10 stop ND filter myself, so I don't know first hand just how dark that is. It makes me wonder if you could have managed without it.

Let me know if you get the time. I'm really curious!

I had the filter on expecting a lot more light. I had one hand on the camera gear and the other on an umbrella and I litrally couldn't take it off, no where to put it.. So much rain it killed my phone in my supposedly waterproof jacket pocket :(

Great picture - I think the fact that it was raining makes it a better picture - everything is soaked and it gives it that nice vivid quality.

Even though you can see the rain you can definitely see its effect on the water. It gives the water a matte look that makes it appear like you could walk on it.
