@Petrochemist: I'm not normally a fan of IR, but the drama in your image is amazing

Welcome to Dyxum!

Cheers... Brian

Thanks Brian, I have to admit that a lot of my IR shots are less successful but I keep most of them to myself.

I'd been looking for another e-mount forum since my A7ii is now my most used camera & talk-e mount didn't have enough traffic to keep me amused during lockdown evenings. Looks like Dyxum has hit the spot.:)

Your windmill shot does look a lot better in the B&W version, did you do some extra processing as the levels & even sharpness look to be improved. Turning a reasonable scene into a very pleasant one.

Your third shot definitely reminds me of Kinderdijk but no doubt there are quite a few other spots in the Nederlands that can manage 3 mills together, even if i'm not familiar with them.

Thanks Mike, I pushed a few sliders to get a more punch in the BW version which came out pretty flat initially.

Good to have another IR shooter on board. Like Brian said, the drama in your shot is great.

Indeed Kinderdijk is probably the most famous together with the Zaanse Schans, but fortunately I have some nearby, although it was the first time I went there for a walk and shooting.

Only one windmill close to me & it's nowhere near as nice as any of yours.
I used to visit the southern part of the Nederlands quite a bit as my Dad kept his boat on the Grevelingmeer for many years. But I've not been north of Amsterdam since I was 5 & never made it to Millingen ann de Rijn where his family originated.

I'm often surprised how many IR shooters there are around. Most years when our club exhibits theres at least one person who mentions they shot IR with film in the past - Something I've no plans to try.

Another windmill, The Noordermolen in Akersloot.

NEX5-N + 18-55mm OSS + 720nm

I was struggling to get nice 'false colours' (typical for 720nm) so decided to go for BW.
Is that my lack of knowledge/experience, does that have to do with the overcast situation, or is it just the colour scheme in the original situation?

Fred - I'm pretty sure that the IR glow of foliage is a "spring/summer thing". So those days with the fresh bright green new growth. The greens reflect the most IR at that time. The tall water foliage is probably sandy/brown color in real life, so not a high contrast thing. The hedges next to the barn and the grass being the brightest parts.

In traditional B&W photography (not IR) you'd need a green filter to make this shot - which would have then resulted in very little hint of 'blue' sky. You've got more sky/cloud contrast than you'd get with a green filter on film. So, if this wasn't IR (and doesn't look 'very' IR) then you'd have to look hard to think how to make the contrast that you've achieved in clouds and also light grass. I'd guess only former mono film shooters would notice this though.

Thanks for your feedback dCap! Let's wait for spring/summer then!

Here's the same mill, from the other side

Same combo as above.

Three fantastic images, Jalu. I particularly like the subtle colours you've achieved in 'Park'

Am I right in thinking you used the hue control instead of a channel switch for 'Way'?
