    I went for a wander today. Didn't actually get much of a chance to do much shooting, but did get a couple of nice shots :

    Some nasty flare on the second one, and there is some great texture on the water in the lower right, too - but I can't recover it without making it look unnatural.

    Ho hum, I rather like them both anyway :)

    Both very nice.

    The person in the first adds a great sense of scale, which helps, and also adds interest,

    I didn't actually want him there, and told him to bog off... In the end I just decided I'd clone him out later. But when I looked at the pic, I felt the same way you do :)

    Cheers ;)

    The scale of number 1 is great :) I like number two the best though

    Bloody D70's and IR. They produce so much better results than Canon's.
    I like them both too mate. I prefer the 2nd one as it has the river in it (and water in IR is always a eyecatcher)

    Edit;
    The first has a nice perspective feel going on.

    Cheers guys :)

    @ undilutedethics - no, I think the broken and jagged rocks beneath him put him off :D

    Does anyone know of an effective way to get rid of flare splodges in post processing? Two big yellowy circles in the top left of the frame, second shot.

    edit @ P_S - yeah, I <3 my D70 for IR :D

    Funny though, because they're good at it due to the relative inneficiency of the hotfilter :s

    If, when I upgrade my body, the D70 doesn't have much resale value, I'll mod it and remove the hotfilter altogethor. Uber IR! :D

    I love Ir photography, wish my Fuji s9500 could do it! :(

    :(

    My compact can do pretty good IR - I guess your Fuji must have a very good hotfilter :/

    I am doing that to a 5D next year! completely remove the filter and place the IR screen over the sensor so 1/500th IR shots Portraits Wooohoo! :D

    Bit of fun : My mate took a pic of me taking the second pic :D

    [​IMG]

    What do people think of this version of the first one? I quickly cloned my mate and slapped him more to the left of the frame :

    A few "key" things with IR & a dSLR that I missed completely when I started shooting it :
    Custom WB
    Focus adjustment
    +2 to 5 EV depending on conditions if using Aperture // Shutter priority
    flare if using a front filter

    The image of you. You are using that cokin clip on box shaped thing. I have one of those... What are they used for ? Mine has no groves to support a filter so I am bit stumped as to what it is for ?
