It seemed like a good choice at the time Micky. Although I wasn't too sure about how bright the pine trees would be. Seems to have worked OK. :) Thanks very much.

Thank you MLVargas for the YS and Best Of. I am happy I've impressed you. :)
Best regards, Tom
I don't know what IR is Tom but it really looks dramatic. Very good perspective !!
Glad you like the composition and outcome Luud. IR means infrared. Using a filter that blocks all visible light the camera will record the part of the light spectrum that we can't see. Check this link for more information. My shutter speeds were anywhere from 1/3 second to 4 seconds so a tripod is needed. :)
Thanks for the information Tom, I have something to read this evening . But first I will try the IR possibilities of my photo program.
Nice Tom. It's a powerful composition and you're decision to not straighten it has kept the drama in the scene. Nice!
As a by the way, what do you do to control the highlights in shots like this one?
Cheers Mark. I appreciate your insightful critique and compliments. :)
As you well know Mark, blown highlights in mono work is always a concern. With these IR shots I usually use a slightly underexposed image(from the bracketed shots I take) to work with. Then I'll set a white point in the brightest pixels I can find to keep larger areas from going hot.
Aah, that''s what you do. I wondered if you ever did the two exposures thing, on for ground, one for sky and combine in PS or whatever? How about HDR/tone mapping?
Hey Mark. The single shot Infrared has historically been the standard but with the tools we have today multiple exposure images are certainly attractive in their own right. This image is a three exposure IR-HDR. I love the combined effect. Haven't played around with single exposure tone mapping of an IR image but now that you've mentioned it I'll have to give it a go. :)
Merci beaucoup Catherine for the kind comment and YS.
Regards from America, Tom
love the effect on this!
