How did you get that effect on your pictures, is that from photoshop?

Nope, they are long exposures ( approx 1min ) using '10 stop' Neutral Density filters. It's basically a very dark filter , and the mist is the water movement.

The almost metallic look on the pebbles is due I think because the rocks are wet and shiny.

Nice to see you all had a good time!
I like the Nikon (spit) shots.

Those beach scenes are good too - I thought the movement was sand on a longish exposure - they're very similar to some OH took earlier this year on our coast.

And it's much healthier than smoking and drinking too!

OK, first time processing IR shots.... 

But here goes for a Simon take on IR.. (edit... toned down the red a little - it was very bright)

Anyway, that's it for this evening.... and probably all of the photos that are worth posting!
Maybe I'll read Rob's tutorial and have another go again at processing the IR.

Well as Simon [springtide] put it
"I Guess You Can See Where This Is Going"

Here are a few from me,



Liked the patterns of the rocks in this one, perhaps should have had the rocks running off at an angle rather than straight ???




And an IR shot from Porlock

Nice set Rob.  Great patterns in the rock in #2  - And the the last IR is fantastic  :) Top Stuff!

I had a play at processing my IR images using what you had, and they didn't come out as you had. Updates the version I had done to desaturate the image a little, looked at it and it was very bright.


One other thing that I noticed is that light has been coming in through the viewfinder - anyone know of a replacement viewfinder that has a door - like on the A900?

Awesome stuff. Love it. I think I need to invest in another ND filter (or two).

Great shots from all you guys... hard to choose from ;)

Simon [springtide]; sorry if misunderstanding you [quote above] but doesn't your camera have the viewfinder "shield" attached to the camera strap that came with the camera? Maybe I'm confused with which camera you have :-[

The a700 [and I'm assuming the others] come with a "shield" to clip in to the viewfinder when taking long exposure shots or cable/remote release ones. The rubber over the viewfinder eye piece has to be taken off so that this cover pushes in. You don't have this? Sorry... embarrased in asking :-[

Again, great shots lads :)

Well, I never!  So it does ;)  I thought that was just for the flash mount, but you are right - it's a viewfinder blackout blind also!

In my defense I've never actually used the Sony strap as I was given an OP/Tech strap by a friend :)

But thanks, I now feel a little stupid :)

Oh... I feel a bit better for that ;)

No need to feel a bit S... I didn't find out until, out of pure curiosity, I looked in the manual & "read this first" sheet to find out what this bit of plastic was doing on the strap... didn't mean anything to me at first ??? ;)
