    A storm is hitting us hard at the moment (mind you, we do not know hurricanes here !), and I wanted to do some photographic impressions.

    First, I struggled to get the necessary long exposure, since I do not have any ND filters (yet). Finally, a 720nm IR Filter brought the solution, but forced me to think B&W.

    I made two shots before it started to rain heavily, and I had to go back inside.

    These are the shots :

    DMC-G1    ---    0mm    f/1.0    10s    ISO 400

    DMC-G1    ---    0mm    f/1.0    30s    ISO 400

    then I decided to make a blend of them both for some reinforced effect.

    DMC-G1    ---    0mm    f/1.0    30s    ISO 400

    Which pic do you prefer ?

    C&C very much appreciated !

    Love these - they remind me of images taken with one of those old plastic Diana cameras - and I mean that as a high compliment! You caught the mood and angry feeling of the weather very well, Raf.

    not your business
    hi rafa,

    i prefer the second. it shows more graduation than the first.
    the combination of both has too much elements for my eyes.

    quite strong pictures - i like this.

    You have good taste, Seb, exactely the same as my Misses :biggrin::biggrin:

    BTW, the drops you can see are not sensor dirt but the first raindrops that fell on the IR Filter while the exposure was counting. Good that I had a filter on it, or the front lenselement was in danger :eek:
