I'm partial to #5 - the detail and how the composition leads the eye nicely through the frame. Nice series!

Very nice. If I HAD to pick I think it would be #1.

Nice work, Tom. I like #1. Are these handheld? If not, what were the settings?

Hey all,

Thanks for the great comments. I had a great time that day and was hoping that there would be some kind of subject to shoot for IR.

fmoore,

I did go handheld on this since I did not bring the tripod along. I decided to just let the camera do its thing in "P" mode. I took a chance and it came out nice. The PP was all done with PhotoFiltre. I did the channel swap and tried upping the saturation which does enhance the blues and reds but decided to leave it the way it is. Did the resize and then sharpen edges and then the 3d frame.

Now that the sun is out more there will be much more experimentation with IR shots. I appreciate your information that you provided for a newbie like me and because of you and NickTrop I have a new world of fun opened up to me.

Mahalo,

Tom

Nice shots - no 5 is my favorite out of the bunch. Just really nice and relaxing to look at. Excellent, esp as they were handheld.

How about posting a coupel of picts from the pentax and lettting us know what you think of it?

I really like #5. #1 and #2 also are niceif it wasn't forthe buildings leaning inward. Personally, I find that distracting. JM2C. To illustrate the point, I've taken the liberty ofstraightening up the buildings in#1. Maybe I've ovedone it a little, but I think it looks better now. Do you agree?

Hiroshi,

Thanks for doing that. I would like to know what it is that you did to do that if I may ask?

I agree that the buildings do have a lean to them so that is why possibly #5 looks to be the prohibitive favorite of the lot.

I found going full wide angle with any of my cameras has this lean to straight buildings or lines.

I cut the picture out and away from the frame you created. Then I used the "distort" and "skew object" features on my Microsoft program to straighten the picture and reinserted it in the frame.

I believe some time back, someone else mentioned using the same program, it's pretty versatile and easy to learn and use. It's called "Picture it. Digital Image Pro #9". It's only about $80.00

"Hope that helps, Hiroshi.

Ok,

Thanks much. It was posted by guaz who I have not seen here in quite some time.

I will now certainly get this program.

Mahalo,

Tom

You can get the same result in PSP by rotating the picture left 1 degree or so then crop off the canvis . You will loose a small portion of the picture but it works .Being new to photography i dont no if PSP is a good enough tool tho .
