I have only been home a few days and still have over 800 more pictures from San Fran to go through. I am finding some solid ones early. On my trips I typically only have a late afternoon or evening after business to get my shots, so I try to make my target list before hand and stick to a plan (if possible). This was one of the spots I had in mind. I wanted to visit the Palace of the Arts during the day and night, but sometimes its difficult to get to everything. I was eager for some daytime shots. I had seen this shot before and new with trees, sky and water – it would be a perfect candidate for IR! After I post processed this shot in Photoshop by using the channel mixers, I decided to give it an additional process in Color Efex Pro 3.0. I am drawn to the one filter called “Monday Morning”. It gives photos a cool look to them. Hope you like it.
I am still amazed at these IR shots. I have had the camera for now over a month and really love it! Its just like HDR’s – you have to wait til after the post process to really see what you have. Then you can modify it a bit to look how you like. I like to thank all of you that are visiting – about 1000 per week! Wonderful! I hope you are enjoying this blog. It is real fun for me. I have some fun trips coming up this year – London, Munich, upstate New York, Austria, Prague, Switzerland, Denver…etc.. I’ll keep posting everyday or so. Some days it may be slow if I am traveling. If you have any suggestions or requests, please feel free to ask me anytime! Have fun!
