Winter Trees

By dark_lord  
While looking out some family photos to scan I came across these for Film Friday. Alder trees in south Staffordshire taken on a Canon EOS 600 using Ektachrome Colour Infrared and a yellow filter, with an exposure of 1/45 at f/11. 31 December 1997.

The Versions are a couple of the locl shopping centres from 24 Decemnber 1997.
V1 is the Santa grotto in the Mander Centre.
V2 is the Wulfrun centre, wet and uncovered and much the same as it was since it was built in the late 1960s. There are numerous small shops and despite what many like to think these days there was some individul character back then. You wouldn't get that now since the overhaul in the 2000s as it's brightly lit with chain shops present, just a clone of every other shopping mall. Oh, and far fewer shoppers.

Thank you to everyone who commented pr voted on Chelsea Blues.

All well taken and interesting, Keith.
I'm trying to identify the location of the lead image.......
...... Highgate Common or Kinver come to mind.

P.S. - Dudley's 'original' Churchill Precinct was similar in character to the versions.

So tempting to say 'I see you never had any real success with IR Ektachrome either' Keith. Colours unpredictable and rather odd. D-max worrying at the best of times...

Thanks John, I think Grin
I shot sufficient that I knew the type of effect I'd get, but often it'd be 'let's see what happens. A red filter gave orange tones and green skies, very post apocalyptic...
