Gold Coast Architecture Part 2

Some long exposures from the Gold Coast with what has turned out to be a faulty filter by Firecrest. Thankfully the people at B+H in New York are sending me a replacement just in time for my upcoming trip to Japan in a few weeks time. It created these weird rings in the sky with any image shot at any aperture smaller than f5.6. Totally useless when I'm wanting to do 5 minute or longer exposures. Still a bit of heavy black and white + lots of grain in post has masked the worst of it. Lesson number one - always test out new gear before heading off for a shoot. Of course I know that - I simply didn't follow my own advice this time.
