Beautiful failure

I tried to get an ND-Filter with varying factor by combining a circular and a linear polfilter.

It worked fine, at least until I saw the results. the exposure is 30 seconds, the lens flare is pin sharp and the colors went amok.

I also have the impression that the reflected IR-light is starting to get importance versus the “normal” light.

It is a failure but it is beautiful.
