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 :

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

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.

sebastian

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:

C U,
Rafael
