Another one from the archives – had all but forgotten about processing shots taken using the Hoya IR72 filter …. guess the initial thrill of IR wore off?

Not sure why it would have though – as I was thrilled to see this one hiding in my folders.

Well, it’s hot enough to fry eggs on the pavement and so should be perfect for IR now – will try some this weekend :-)

Nikon D80
Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AIS
149 secs – not sure what aperture as AIS EXIF doesn’t get recorded on the D80 and it was from a long while back.
Hoya IR72 (Infra-red Filter).

In colour and without the IR filter (and about 15 steps to the left)

    awesome place! awesome capture! where is this!

  • Thanks Dinesh – wasn’t as nice as some of the shots in colour. IR changes things. This must have been taken about 15 steps to the right of this one
    Varca, Goa.

    Cracker shot =) it’s it great when you go through your files and find a little gold nugget you overlooked before??

  • Since I’ve not been getting a lot of shooting done recently, those folders are gold for me!

  • Thanks Wendi – LOL – yep, really quite a world of difference in moods isn’t there?

    Amazing. There’s no wonder you was thrilled to rediscovering the capture in your archives. Well done. :)

  • Thank you so much – with me not getting a chance to shoot these days – my folders of past shoots are like a life-raft for me!

    Magical, kind of eerie, and very beautiful!

  • Exactly what drew me to IR work in the first place – the kind of eeriness and mood one could get. I need to get that filter out once again.

  • PS: There’s this slant in the horizon – only as there is a fairly well pronounced slope down from that building to the water here.
    Think I should correct it?
