From the Japanese Garden in San Mateo, CA. Pentax K100D, Pentax 18-55mm DA, with Hoya R72 IR filter.
No comments? Interesting.
Interesting work. How did you put some of the normal colours (like the brown of the wood on the steps) into the IR picture?
dude this is busy on the eye. the lines on the bottom half coupled with the leaves. tall. lengthy. detail rich. the color works. very nice.
I shoot in RAW, then there is post processing required to get the colors you see above. I use Photoshop CS2.
This link - http://digitalphotographer.com.ph/forum/showthread.php?t=5931 - has a good description of the post processing using Photoshop. Note that in the link, the camera used is a Pentax K10 and the K10 requires much longer exposure times than my K100D. For my K100D, this is the EXIF
18-55mm at 24mm
Custom light balance
I also wrote something up on pst processing, see here > http://www.xsrider.com/infrared/infrared.htm but mine needs to be updated - I have improved my technique since I wrote that.
Hope that helps.
yes I think there are too many competing elements on here to be effective.
Thanks, that the kind of comment I needed.
I dunno, I dont mind the content/subject....maybe its a little busy on the right, would have been nice to see a little more of the handrail to break it up a bit, and a bit more room round the wotsit, the trees are kinda cramping it from the right, but on the whole I like the perspective.
The thing I dont get is, if your gonna start changing colours in PS, why bother using an IR filter in the first place, just shoot normally and invent whatever colours you want.
I too think it's rather busy but with all the busy-ness, my eye is still drawn to the Pagota via the steps. Very nice
