Stratford on the Avon


You Brits aren't the only ones with a city called Stratford. We have one too. It's a beautiful city (more like a town)just like it's sister city in the U.K. Ours is home to the world renowned Shakespearean Festival and, above all is else, is the home town of Justin Bieber. emoticon

This one was taken along the Avon River yesterday. The sun was bright, the sky was clear, a beautiful day for IR photography.

Still not convinced, but certainly feel that there is more 'punch' in this than the MacKenzie ones. There is the sense of a slight leftward lean though.

Thanks for looking. No one's trying to convince you, Toby. I enjoy IR photography so I do it. If it doesn't appeal to you that's fine too.

I like this because not only is it different from the standard stuff but it is a good example of the variety of tones that come with this sort of IR. However, one major criticism, never mind Justin Bieber where are the swans?

Re: Stratford on the Avon


Haha, there were tons of swans, Norm. Too many in fact, I had to wait about 20 minutes until they swam out of the way so I could get this clean shot. Also, there were people walking and standing on the bridge. They have some nerve, eh? emoticon

Re: Stratford on the Avon


Which brings me back to a question, is there anything to be gained by taking two photographs of the same scene with and without the IR filter and then adding a percentage of the one taken in visible light to the one taken in IR? Then you could have some swans on the Avon, for example.

Re: Stratford on the Avon


I'm sure it's possible. I could have taken one shot of the swans in the water at say 1/250 sec and then merged it with the long exposure IR. Not sure I would do that as it would look kind of fake, don't you think?

Well said Steven! Objectively, I think this one is quite good. I am not sure that I think that of the others :-)

The point is, Steven, if you had taken this photograph with a modified camera, which is still only covering the same IR as you, wouldn't the swans have been included, if they were there?

Re: Stratford on the Avon


I think swans would have looked good in IR but frozen in time, I understand why Steve let them get out of the scene as a blurr would have spoiled the lovely tranquil dark foreground.

Steven, you need to get a converted camera, mine only cost a £[sign in to see URL] I can also change lens with it. sometimes blurr is not always practical
