Thanks! I bought the complete set of Polar Pro Filters for the Mavic 2 Pro in the end. The one used for this photo was the ND 8 filter with a 2 second exposure

Ok great thanks. So I need to get some filters soon so I can do long exposures during brighter conditions.

Nice shot! I love the brake light trails you captured. Amazing timing to get such long trails in only two seconds. I’d love to see a 4 second shot!

I have the entire set of PolarPro filters and often use the ND256 and 1000 filters during the day

To avoid frost bite, I fly from inside my truck. The MP2 signal is bullet proof unless you fly well beyond VLOS

Very cool. I hadn’t even thought about doing some long exposure. I’ll have to give it a try.
