About the Image(s)

This morning I decided to do a little experimentation re converted camera and type of images.
Prior to the sunrise I created 3 images of the approximately same scene with 3 different techniques (all on a tripod)

1) Hoyt Lake (Dawn - pre sunrise blue light): Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 with Olympus 7-14 mm f/2.8 - set up: ISO 200, 9mm (18 mm full frame equivalent), f/11 Combo in light room of 5 images (1/5, 0.4, 0.8, 1.6 and 3.2 sec)

2) Hoyt Lake shortly after in IR using a Canon 6D Astro-converted (all filters removed) + IR filter (standard color IR (720nm) filter with a 16-35 mm f2.8 (version II) Canon lens - Set up ISO 100, 16 mm, f/2.8, 1/50 sec.

3) Hoyt Lake shortly after in Full Spectrum. Canon 6D Astro-converted (all filters removed) - NO filter + 16-35mm f2.8 (version II) Canon lens. Set up: ISO 100, 16mm, f/2.8 1/5 sec.

Up to you if you want to post these instead of my previous one for July or you can post this one in August. I was thinking that it would be a nice debate and comparison set.

Of the three the "No filter" image is my favorite, though all are noteworthy. The evening tones produced without filtering seems to coincide with what I imagine Hoyt Lake to be like at sunset. The IR-filtered image does better at picking up the brighter clouds and their reflections on the water's surface. I do not know why that would result from filtering the shorter wavelength light, but seems to be the case. Maybe you can comment on that aspect. Nice study!   Posted: 08/14/2020 10:21:51
