Infrared Rose......

This rose is a lovely pink and yellow colour, but I decided to do an infrared version to see if I liked it that way or not. Infrared is not something that I do very often, as I find that like many other things, it is often overused and overdone. This was not true infrared photography, using infrared film. The effect was achieved using Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo x2 editing software. Hope you like it.....

Red Bull Air Racer


This Red Bull Air racer is posted on my colour blog, but I thought it might make an interesting Black & White image also. It has been a while since I posted an image on this site, so I am quite overdue. Most images that are taken of this event are usually of the high speed maneuvers through the inflatable pylons. However, I have been more intrigued by the perception of the aircraft cavorting amongst the high office towers of Detroit across the river. The compression aspect of the telephoto lenses make the aircraft appear to be much closer to the buildings than they actually are. This was shot with my Minolta AF 75 ~ 300 mm zoom lens on my Maxxum 7D. With a multiplication factor of 1.5, this makes this lens more like 105 ~ 450 mm lens in 35mm terms. Hope you enjoy it.
