IMHO, IR & UV are useful tools for providing a different view of our common, ordinary world. I think that these settings are sufficiently outside the experience of most people that IR & UV don't necessarily add anything. When I see them, I can't help but wish I could see the images capturedin the visible spectrum.

Just my $1/50.

i understand what you are saying TCav, but do not fully agree. just because joshua tree is a plcae many people are not familiar with is no reason to not use IR and UV (although i do have visible spectrum shots of most of these as well)

that said this was my first trip to joshua tree with only photography in mind and the reason I choose primarily IR and UV was to try and break from the mold of all the typical shots from the area that I had seen. while I feel i did break from the mold a bit, if i was successful or not thats for anybody to decide.

i found it more dificult than i thought it would be from a photography point of view out there and plan to go back and spend some more time getting familiar with the place now that temperatures are under 100 degrees again.


thank you both for your comments.

I agree.

I was just pointing out that 'different' and 'better' are not synonyms.

But then, I tend not to be a big fan of B&W conversions either.
