comment How do I take a shot like the flooded tree by Andrew Tallon?
@matt - Which part is no clear? Water smoothness = long exposure; Tree is sharp and clouds are not completely out of focus, so smallish aperture; 2+ filters = vignetting; hard-stop split ND makes the sky darker, otherwise the sun's reflection would not be brighter than the sun; filter coloring gives the unnatural horizontal M-Y gradient. Author claims it is due to the cheapness of his filters and his software-compensation. There are gradient filters to do the same. As I said, just a pile of simple tricks. The art is thinking of applying them in this combination :)

Haha! When I take the time to use my ND400, I am usually up to creating something awesome... plus I get only a few shots like that per golden hour, so I have to make them count!

comment How do I properly expose dark scenes containing bright light sources?
Clarified. I meant correct for automatic metering looking at the whole scene (Matrix on Nikon, Multi-Segment/Evaluative/etc for others). Absolutely, the photographer can take control and decide what he wants using EC or Manual exposure.

Oops! @rm999 found the answer. Does it helped anyone how I guessed? Or should I simply delete this?

comment Do I really need a fast 50mm lens?
Since you have a Pentax, what you really absolutely need is a 55mm F/1.4, 50mm is so unoriginal ;) Seriously, see the related questions suggest by Matt.

comment What are the benefits of Av vs. Tv vs. Manual exposure modes?
I know two professionals who have taped their mode-dial to Aperture-Priority mode. I use it at least 85% of the time.

Honestly, #1 does not matter and you probably wont find an answer. #2 is a good question though.

comment What should I look for in a second-hand DSLR with a nice long zoom lens?
@Billy - Yes, I was going for those that you would normally find used, so not the D7000, 7D, K-5, etc.

Should have been more specific, Live-View is a gimmick on most DSLRs :) As far as I am concerned, only Canon (XSi onwards) and Sony (A33 onwards) get it completely right. Still, I even use it occasionally on my Pentax DSLRs to see anything at all while using an ND400 filter.
