How do you do IR with digital?? Is this something unique to the D70?

Eric,

Congrats on the ribbon. This was my hands down favorite for this challenge the second I saw it. Glad you got a ribbon, even if it was for a DQ, but it deserved the blue IMHO. Great work!

This photo makes me go now and buy D70.
it's the best quality that camera can reach. very silky details.
i loved it so much. it's great shot.
by the way, very clever to choose B&W here. also very good choice of 10sec shutter speed.

Did I miss something here? You got third, right!


Originally I got 4th. The fish-eye pic of the Brooklyn Bridge by The-O-ster, was DQ'ed.

Good composition and tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2004 11:09:13 PM
awesome idea -- the long exposure makes that smoke look almost like liquid pouring out of those stacks. great idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2004 09:48:09 PM
From your title I infer an infra-red shot ... looks great. Hope you had to drive a long way to shoot this : )
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2004 06:40:07 PM
Overprocessed.
12/12/2004 01:37:05 AM
A very good b/w conversion...

Time delay with no traffic, or blur? Like it.

This is an incredibly beautiful photo and well as frightening one. Great job
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great industrial landscape. Good to see a different take on landmark. I hope this does well. Excellent picture. (would do well in the 'wind' challenge also!)

Good shot! I love the SS used. Great lighting or IR??? Wold of worked great in the wind challenge as well.

Good shot - very effective in mono - good luck

Ominous to say the least. Should be a contender for a ribbon with its rich grey and black tones. Road leads your eye. The very BOL. 8 My only comment would be the spec (of light I assume that is in the tree line left of the cooling tower) keeps catching my eye. Other than that this scene sends shiver down my spine!

Stunning! 10

Excellent exposure. What time of the day/night? I like the tonal range and sharpness. Very cool infrared-like shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2004 12:42:31 AM
Very nice. The clarity is unreal, looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 11:31:14 AM
Nice Black and White shot. The sky in the picture is very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 10:37:33 AM
The long exposure on the cooling towers works well.. (I`ve used this technique myself in the past) The composition and tonal treatment also suit the image in my opinion.
Nice work.

Not enough contrast to creat impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 06:40:05 AM
Nice effect. The black and white brings a starkness to it that is kind of unsettling, in a way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/08/2004 01:14:54 AM
Very interesting. Looks like a timed exposure to get the smoothness of the smoke. Nice touch. I'm not sure if I would have like it better with a tighter crop. Visually it's pretty good but I feel like I want to be closer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2004 04:35:17 PM
nice effect, the road make the towers look small, I know they are huge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2004 03:43:56 PM
Is this infra-red? Might explain the long exposure. Great surreal effect and very well composed too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2004 11:21:13 AM
I like this shot, it is very different. The effect creates a feel of the surreal, a bit sci-fi in nature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2004 04:53:43 AM
My favourite so far.Great lighting, DOF & a sense of movement. The choice to go Black & White works really well here too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 09:45:53 PM
I love the sharpness and shutter speed, looks like a videogame (In a good way) :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 07:01:36 PM
great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 05:40:15 PM
I like the sky effect very cool. the compsition is just great, the road leeds you to the chimenys. Very nice indeed, keep up the great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 01:23:03 PM
Challenge link: strong - good focal point

Image critique: intriguing vibe, great lighting and strong, moody scene. Composition is good although a bit less road and more dramatic sky would be better. Title is horrid - too wordy and descriptive - sorry!

Out-of-challenge appeal: yup - I like it, so I'll be back...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 08:02:19 AM
I like this shot. The composition is a bit tense, the road leading the aye to the right but then the main subject is to the left, but I like it. The tones are good and it seems to me you have done a good job in the post processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 02:08:41 AM
This image is virtually flawless - I love the lines of the road, the contrast between the clouds and the pollution. Composition is great and the editing is brilliant. 10. (hope you win). One thing.... the title sucks :)...too long winded (hey I had to criticise something).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2004 12:23:54 AM
Wow - great tones and contrast. Love it!
