Watermane by boomslice Watermane by boomslice
The weather has been simply fantastic here in RI over the last week. Sunny and cool, little to no humidity. What more could you ask for?!?!

In any case, I was experimenting with IR this morning and learned that white balance settings play a HUGE part in the end result. For this pic, the color is straight out of my camera and miles away from the purple/red that I'm used to seeing.

That is just utterly incredible...a lil soft in the trees which I suspect is due prolly to the long exposure IR needs. But man......those colors!!!! Bowl me right on over!

that is a nice one... I wonder how did you make water so orange? Was is only WB or did you use PS? Could you write in details how did you measure WB. I raed about a method with a white sheet of paper. Here are some useful tips on how to make such beautiful pics with D70 [link]

Hope to hear from you soon.

I can see this is already a popular shot. me doing some IR myself and as a friend to a friend.. Have you tried this swapping the red and blue channels over in photoshop ? It will give the trees a more natural yellow wash and the water would turn to a rich blue.

I like this shot very much. :)

I love how claustrophobic it looks. Almost as if it's a miniature inside of a building. And yes, the trees are amazing and beautiful.

Love the diagonal line of waterfall that runs across the image... it splits the colours nicely and plays havoc with my mind.
The swirl of colour under the falls is amazing.. what a cool place!

Thanks for the comment on yellow swirl! much appreciated!

Very well deserved Daily Deviation. I don't fully understand what I'm looking at, but the long exposure has created the most intriguing shapes and patterns in the water. Composition is excellent, well balanced exposure. Can't fault it.

boomslice Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2004
Yes, it's a Canon G3. I have an IR filter that I attach to the camera that allows me to take IR photos. It's really quite fascinating, if not a bit difficult at first.

Thanks for looking and commenting. :)
