Smoke Confrontation by Dave_Canon

Smoke Confrontation

Thanks for the comments. The smoke is as captured but there are three images in a montage.

Thats My Girl by Dave_Canon

Thats My Girl

Thanks for the comments. This was taken in a studio we hired and the girl was sat on a motor bike but the shot is better without the bike. The two models had never met before but the guy does look like you had better not mess with his girl.

Black Country Museum by Dave_Canon

Black Country Museum

Many thanks for your comments. Several people have suggested that the poppies were added but they were there. The Black Country Museum is well worth a visit with plenty of opprotunity for photography. Be sure to speak to the staff in costumes before you photograph them and you will then find them very cooperative.

Thanks for your comments. I visted Lyme Regis with this shot in mind.

Why Us?

Thanks for your comments; it is certainly intended to ask a question.

Light Play by jeanie

Light Play

Excellent shot which just shows how light makes the image (with the photographers help, of course). Well done.

Strawberries and Cream

I think the flash gun was mine and I did press the trigger. I had not realised that you were into steam engines. You should come to the Club Outing to the Severn Valley Railway tomorrow.

Venice - Storm Approaching

Many thanks for the comments. I have since painted this scene in oils basically copying my photograph.

Two Sisters

Thanks for your comments. I have another shot from the opposite direction in this gallery in mono. This shot does work on colour or mono but I found that this particualr shot worked better for me in colour.

Impressions of Rialto by Dave_Canon

Impressions of Rialto

Thanks for your comments. The suggestion of a dream was what I had in mind. It is busy at the Rialto Bridge and I saw it several times on different days at different times so I was looking to produce an image which portrayed my memory of it rather than just a record of one instant.

Tanks for your comments. B&W infrared does not suit everyone and colour infrared is definitely an acquired taste.

Fishing Hut by Dave_Canon

Fishing Hut

Thanks for your comments. I walked along the pathway out towards the first hide half hoping to capture a bird. We were waking into the sun so the hut looked somwhat unintersting from the back as it was in shadow. After passing it I turned round and was amzed at what I saw. I took several shots as the cloud formation was not going to stay there for long.

Trees by Dave_Canon

Douglas, my camera has been converted which makes it much easier. I did try just using a filter but gave up because exposure times were 30 sec and foliage and clouds move a lot in that time.

The sensors on a DSLR are sensitive from ultraviolet through the visible spectrum to near infrared. Once the internal block filter is removed the camera is as sensitive to near infrared as it is to visible light. For the conversion, they install a 720nM or 840nM filter. The latter blocks all visible light whereas the former allows just a little visible liight and is better for colour versions. When you look at the histograms you can see all three channels have data but the level is highest in the red channel. The above effect is created by swapping the red and blue channel. Remember near infrared does not have any visible colour to humans so any representation (even B&W) is false. Hence these are called false colours. However, as there is no truth it does mean you can do whatever you please though red/blue channel swapping is the most popular. I can also easily produce B&W versions as well.

All Saints Church by Dave_Canon

All Saints Church

Thanks for your comments. This is All Saints Church, All Saints Rd, Cheltenham. This church is very photogenic and the more popular view is the opposite direction towards the altar. However, I particulalry liked the way the nave was better lit. At the time, my Club's Annual Photographic Exhibition was being dsplayed in the Church hence the lighting.

Kathy, the Buzz is marketed by Fo2PIX. It is based on a software algorithm for enhancing military Photographs (bring out more detail). The author realised that the algorithm might be used in reverse to simplify pictures for artictic effect. While the filter can be very effective (my Venice Storm picture worked well), it is difficult to find the right pictures to suit this effect. In 5 years, I have only used it on 4 pictures. Dave
