Day 13, Nifty Fifty, SOOC by fbailey

Day 13, Nifty Fifty, SOOC

I thought I'd experiment a little today so turned the in camera settings to Monochrome, tried to get a level horizon on the tripod, and then added an IR filter. This is all a work in progress, I'm very new to this, but the end result is just a little different from the others I've submitted so far for this challenge.
BRILLIANT, and an Instant Fav.

Looks like midwinter - amazing! What is an IR filter?
September 13th, 2018

@casablanca IR stands for Infrared. Jorlam who used to be on 365 used to do quite a few of them but her camera was an IR conversion (it only took infrared). The cheap way to do it is to get an IR filter (deep red in colour) and about £40 and add it to your lens using a slow shutter speed. You really need bright sunshine for best results, as you can tell today was variable. You can have people crossing the bridge and they don't even show up as ghosts! My new toy:)

So beautiful and such a tranquil scene - fav

Lovely!

Really beautiful. Looks as if the whole landscape is wrapped in snow.

Beautiful IR capture
September 13th, 2018  
Beautiful b&w. Excellent location :-)
September 13th, 2018  
Very interesting. I have used an IR-filter but only in colour and there was so much editing to do. As you did this sooc it seems like a good idea to test b&w. I like the result of your work.

oooh looks like a winter pic...not sure if I am ready for snow yet!

I need to Google IR filters- I don't see what it does other than heighten the exposure in B&W. What am I NOT seeing??? I like the leading line of the river here
September 13th, 2018  
Like people mentioned already in the comments, it surely looks like a winter scene... beautiful... fav
And @fbailey thank you for that info.. learning everyday a bit on 365 :)

You're having fun aren't you? Keep you occupied until your brain hurts. Good result.

Super shot...great composition, light
September 13th, 2018  
Very effective, looks great :)

@30pics4jackiesdiamond @madeinnl If you Google "best examples of infrared photography" you'll see sone amazing pics (mainly colour) that look very surreal and other worldly. I kept mine in b&w so I didn't have to post process. It's not to everyone's taste but I love the results you can get.
September 13th, 2018  
oh what gorgeous trees!
September 13th, 2018  
@fbailey Thank you, is it similar to a neutral density (?) filter so can have long exposure and get milky clouds water and no people??
September 13th, 2018  
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Yes, very similar.
September 13th, 2018  
Wonderful scene..............it looks like snow on the trees!
September 13th, 2018  
Lovely shot and bridge :)
September 13th, 2018  
IR filter, mmm, might need to ask nicely for my birthday :-) Great experiment.
September 13th, 2018  
SOOC is so good to achieve something like this! Its almost fairytale! fav
September 13th, 2018  
Oh, I like this...I remember Jorlam's work as well...didn't realize you could do this with filter and not needing camera conversion...ah, more money to spend.
September 13th, 2018  
This is so amazing- I hadn’t heard of IR either - thanks for teaching me something today - really impressed with your hard work 👏
September 13th, 2018
