Just back from holidays this past week, in was very intriguing, tons of wildlife but did manage a few landscapes, going to try panoramas when Im bored. 10GB's of images to play with so dont see it in the near future. LOL This was my first real go with the D2x, mixed reactions at the moment........

here is one where I did color, infrared and worked with the colors the IR filter gave me and last one infrared in B&W.......not a great pic, but was fun to play. These were shot with the 12-24mm and Nikon D2x on tripod,
roughly 25 second exposure, no noise reduction in camera and no
noise reduction software, ISO 320. The D2x handles long exposures
very nicely.........not a great IR camera because it is not
suspectible to IR and takes long exposures, but it is definitely
do-able!

Oooooo....that 2nd one is really different! I think I like it. Have to come back and look again later but it's really interesting. I like the bottom one, too. The top on I like except for the clouds. Something about them is bothering me.

I love number 2 as well. Altough its hard for me not to like IR. I also like number 3 as a good second. Number one doesent doesent do it for me. HTH

Guess I am a purist....I prefer the first one.

However, I must say all are very nice :)

I also am "traditionalist" so I favor #1. Next I would pick #3. But #2 has a nice feel to it for what it is.

So, good job......one shot satisfies three perspectives!

gotta go with #3

For me, #3 is the winner. The other two are great as well, but I like the sense of motion in the second two, and, while the color treatment in #2 is very nice, I'm still a sucker for b&w.

Thanks everyone!

Im leaning towards #2 , if the water wasnt so flat on the b&w I think that would have been my fav, tough on these long exposures........

thanks

IR

Keith,

I like the first one the best. It appears that you may have over exposed (or overprocessed) the IR images. Which IR filter were you using? I have some experience shooting IR with the D2X, primarily with an 87 Harrison. You may be able to go back and fix the overexposure issue in PS or NC. When exposing, always check your RGB histogram and make sure you didn't blow the red channel. If you did all of this and it came out this way, my apologies, I don't know what it could be.

Keith,

I like the first.

I usually like black and white and like soft water and "hard?" water. But here I find the water way too soft. Looks like snow to me.


The second is intriguing and I think the soft water adds to that in this case.

Thanks, Keith! No disrespect meant. I just thought there was some detail lost in the water on the BW conversion. I have a shot (Pennybacker Thread) in this forum that is IR.

HI Chris

Absolutely none taken, no worries. I am always open to new ideas or ways of trying things. live long learning. LOL..............thanks

As far as the water being flat, as you can see from the color, the water was relatively flat, now add 25 seconds on to it and voila. Would have helped if their was atleast 1 ft falls or greater but notta......

will take a peek at your thread. I find the D2x is not comparible to my D2h or D100 for IR sensitivity, but it is still do-able....takes approx 4x times longer to get a properly exposed pic..........

ahh...i forgot about the long exposure...DOH! It still looks like a little loss of detail between the color IR and the BW shot. The 25 second exposure goes a long way towards making sense...sorry for my brain spasm.
