On my way

Recommended Posts

The Castle of Mery sur Oise is on my way to work. This is an example of view I am lucky to enjoy, sometimes...

D80ir, AFS 18-55mm.

As I see your kit lens "like" IR!

Fine shoot!

What a wonderful atmosphere you created here!

Very enjoyable image this is ... the tree to the right and the geometry of the path through this garden rounds it up.

I like it a lot ...


Never mind the words ... just hum along and keep on going...

Thank you all!

Andrew: yes, the kit lens is remarkably well suited for IR, and I find VR really useful on the D80 as it is not really acceptable to increase ISO beyond 400...

Fons: the sun was not up yet, it was rather dark. I açtually like the mood given by darkness

This is excellent. Great mood captured here.

The only minor thing that I'd consider is to get rid of the bench and waste bin between the trees. Personally I find them distracting to the overall feel of the shot (although I know that this suggestion would annoy 'purists' and competition judges! ;) ).

Thank you!

The bench and trash bin should be fairly easy to remove, I'll have a look tonight.

Keep them. They add to the ambience of the scene.

Nice IR, by the way. Like a b/w movie of the '40s. The ivy-covered tree is almost spooky in its appareance.

I love the gloomy look.

Nice composition.

Congrats

I have a lot of affection for this tree... It is an old sycamore under whose branches we often stay for pic-nic or just to protect from the sun during summer.

Dracula? maybe not, but the almost 900 years old castle (in its intitial version which does not exist anymore) has seen many dark days.

Thanks! This is actually a difficult time for me, sitting on my scooter on a freezing morning... But hell, Paris is 25km away, which just takes 2 or 3 hours by car in the morning!

      I have a spare micro 4/3 body that no longer sees service, a Panasonic GX-7.  I was looking at having it converted to an IR camera by https://www.lifepixel.com/  Does anyone else have any experience with a converted Micro 4/3 body and lenses shooting IR?  Which conversion do you go with, the standard IR?  My goal is to have some fun and explore an area of photography I have never tried before, and the redundant body with little resale value seemed like a good choice to try?

      My old Nikon D80 is now converted to IR 830.
      This is my first IR image... actually an IR panorama.

      It was taken a few days ago from the "Passeggiata del Gianicolo", near a lighthouse, where you can have a nice view over Rome and its surrounding mountains in the background... clearly visible in IR; not so in visible light.
       
      The NEF was developed and converted to BW in Lr; some extra editing, punch and contrast, was done in Nik Silver Efex.

      These three IR images were shot on hike of the Queens Route in Vesterålen, Northern Norway in August. The hike goes from Nyksund under the mountains along the sea, then reaching the fishing village Stø, it ascends up on an narrow mountain ridge back towards Nyksund.  It was a day where light and fog was changing the whole time:
