    A quick outing

    by beeb » Sat Jun 07, 2014 8:07 pm

    Went and did one of my favourite circuits today to have a second play (finally!) with the TS-E and IR body.

    Started at Turpins falls (focusing more on the surrounds than the falls in this case), near Metcalfe in country Victoria:

    Quickly changing weather conditions made for a change of style with this one:

    Then onto the Metcalfe Cascades:

    Some of the rock formations are stunning (but incredibly hard to capture! :? ):

    And saw this little gem just after returning to the black-top near Taradale:

    Fun day out all in all! 8)

    The first 2 and the last I find stunning,

    you did well with the sunken rock pools, Awkward to say the least.
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    Thanks Eden. Was very lucky to get what sunshine I did given the weather here today, so worked out pretty well really.

    And yes, the rockpools are quite precarious - that one in the second shot of the two is nearly deep enough for me to stand in!

    Beautiful region.

    #1 and #5 catch my eye the most, but consistently high standard in all.

    The IR is working very harmoniously with your vision Tim. Or should that be the other way around? Lovely work.

    A little each way I suspect... :wink: Cheers.

    A good haul there, Tim! I like the way you see in infrared and get the images to work for you. I think it's the ever so slight surreal quality that I like most about your infrareds, it's not gone too far and hasn't got the nasty tints that tend to detract from an infrared image, for my eye anyway... #3 is my fave of these, then #5.
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Alex. Yeah, I'm not really a fan of colour IR imagery, but converted to B&W it's superb. Such a massive depth of tone as there is lot more light returned from shadow areas. You've hit the nail on the head when you say I "see in infrared" - I reckon it's a lot closer to how I see light in the real world than normal colour cameras!
