WDYSOPPTW(What did you shoot or post process this week) 9-23-12
Usually IR (converted) images are boooooring, but these have nice color! Good work. Can you explain your method?
Edit: from another post, I gather you had the F200 camera converted for IR sensitivity, or something, in Hong Kong.
I'm glad you like these. I had my F200 converted with an 655nm filter, witch not totaly block the IR, so can allow some colours capturing. For editing I use the chanel mixer in PS, inverting the red & blue channels (select red channel set red to '0' and blue to '100' then select blue colour channel and set red to '100' and blue to '0' )
adjust contrast, saturation, USM to taste. This is more or less what I did for these images. Sorry for the English.
Thanks CA. Yes, I have always loved Kodak colors and have their Z915 and Z990. The 990 has it's quirks with slow write times and a menu that must have been designed by a committee of disagreements, but in the end, it gives me good IQ at all focal length.
I have to agree, lovely Kodakcolors. Really love the mood of the second shot. Thanks for joining in.
Thank you for making a reason why we should come back again.
Hugo is trying to remember how to how pictures here

Hi Danny. So good to see you chart some pics in this week's thread. You have set yourself a high standard with this group. I especially like both
for their layered meaning potential and/or their compact and efficient storytelling. All the building shots are so nice and crisp. And those puffy clouds! Where's the typhoon season? (Not to wish for it!)
Thank you for your kind words.
Those clouds indicating very high temperature, when I was a kid, I used to called them "Hot Cloud". The word "Cloud" is a homophone of the word "Faint" in Chinese. Try to joke about "so hot that can make people faint".
No typhoon, these clouds normally indcate very hot weather but no typhoon. BTW, I am sure there is technical term for this type of Cloud, but I forgot.
Not much time for picture taking, ultra busy with my Senior Citizen Education Scheme. Just called the tutor this morning to see if I could drop one course and save me some times for leisure
I will try to post some more in the WDYSOPPTW threads in the future.

What a feeling to be posting here on FTF again... so strange yet so familiar and it's such a special delight to view the pics from some good old friends! Thank you so much Kim!:-) Love all your pics my dear... the last one is just magical!
(PS. Don't laugh, I've spent hours to figure out how to post pics here!)
Yes, it's cliche but time really flies, doesn't it! I'm so astonished to find out that my last post actually dates back to 2010, another WDYSOPPTW thread! In order to fill this gap, I've just added my favourite pics to my dpreview galleries.:-) Hope you enjoy!
(Including test shots with the new X-E1.)
Happy happy shooting and take care everyone!!!

Nice work there. Apart from your shadow I really like this shot.
Apologies if my lack of photographic knowledge is catching.

The F600EXR proved an ideal travel-cam. The first three were shot in RAW, all PP'd in Picasa.
On the motorway heading for home. You know the TV shows that show people doing daft stuff on the highways? Heres an instance of it from the trip home on Friday. 8 steel tube soccer goal post complete with nets still attached being transported on a small (dingy) trailer. half the length was unsupported and each time he hit a big bump the frames would scrape and spark on the road surface. You gotta wonder where the road police are at a time like this
