BattleBrat: Block infrared light, I thought newer cameras have better IR filters in the stack these days and no longer need additional filters, I also read that adding more IR filtration harms image quality, this true?
Nope. Try putting on a Hoya IR72 filter. Even the latest sensors don't completely block IR, this is why the IR72 still works for doing IR shots. Mind you it take 2-6 minute exposures to get an image.
Buzz Lightyear: Congratulations, APenza! What a shame that kbdkbd (who has never even entered a dpreview challenge) should spoil your well deserved win with such an ignoramus comment!
Actually I have been in a few challenges, and have placed as high as 7th. I have deleted them, since sandbagging is so prevalent in the challenges. There are photos that clearly don't deserve .5 stars but get them somehow and skew their ranking. I will no longer enter a challenge.
Sometimes there is a fine line between HDR and some of the processing effects. This is a great shot, and I apologize for my mistake.
I'm surprised this didn't get 1st place. Really a great shot and subject nicely processed too.
Sure looks like HDR to me.
Very interesting indeed!
Don't know if this challenge subject has been done before, but this is a great subject!
I can't vote for some reason.
No stars show up. Anyone know why?
This is a great shot. Love the wide angle.
