Ebbw Vale, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is a lovely huge flame tree outside the train station at Ebbw Vale. Of course, in infrared, you can't see the firey colours.

I think I'm going to put the R72 filter away for a while and instead spend some time reading up on what looks good. I'm having some trouble stepping away from the colourful world.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
@ 18/1mm
Filters: Near-infrared (580nm)
Exposure: 60/1" @ f/13/1, ISO 1600

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Custom white-balance picked from one of the leaves on the tree
  2. Curves: lights +100, darks +80, shadows -30
  3. Saturation -25
  4. Graduated filter diagonally across the entire photo, to lighten the bottom right hand side through to the centre (exposure +1 stop) (otherwise this area was quite dark and unsettling)
  5. Noise reduction: luminance +50
  6. Vignette: -20

The wash-up:

Different angles, but otherwise that's it for today.
