That is a great help - thanks John . I'm pleased to know I'm on the right lines. I suspected that more "green" was needed. Roll on spring!.Juanito200 wrote:Birma- The main problem with your two photos isn't your technique. It is the time of year. When all the foliage around the dead tree is green, then you will get the Woods effect. Dead wood, brown grass all have low IR reflectance. Wait until spring and you will notice a huge difference.
EDIT Sorry Birma- I didn't see the sentence at the bottom.....You are getting close.
As far as the technique I used in my tree shot, I shot RAW ISO 100 or 200 I'd have to look. Creative style B/W. I then played with the contrast, exposure, DRO in IDC to achieve the 'glow'. I am usually at about f7- f11, to negate focus difference, and I just count out the seconds with my manual release cable. (sorry I don't do it more precisely!) I'll post some others with the exposure data. I'm biding my time right now by scoping out locations for spring... Hope this helps- John
