Thanks again for another ribbon for the olympus c2020.
The reason the sky is blue is because the hoya r72 infrared filter does let through a little visable light. Also this particular camera gives very good IR results with it`s automatic white balance.

Swapped red/blue channels
Levels
Desaturated yellow
Boost blue saturation about 20% and neatimaged x 3 with sharpening.

I do a lot of infrared but i've never been able to get the sky to look like that. how did you get the sky so blue?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 12:10:37 AM
Very awesome photograph. It was one of my favorites also. One question though. I don't understand IR photography very much, but how did you get the color in the sky with an IR filter?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 12:07:06 AM
Wins the day. Great infrared. Congratulations on your Red.

Weird placing.. as far as I know, boats are far from obsolete... broken ones may not *work*... but.

Ah well.. nice shot anyway.

07/06/2005 12:02:35 AM
Congrats. This was one of the ones I rated highest. It has everything unique - but with all the qualities worthy of a winner.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Bumping you up from a 4 to a 5. It's very nice, but the infrared has been overdone in the last few challenges IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Amazing picture, great colors, i great sky!

beautifully done. If it were up to me you'd get the blue. Hope you place on top.

Cool color effect. I wonder how the boat landed on land. You've got my vote!

Infrared, I presume?? Very interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/02/2005 07:11:52 PM
Wow. What an interesting take on an infrared image. I like how different it is from
all the infrared trees we're seeing now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/02/2005 05:17:06 PM
There is a painting very similar like this photo. I like it very much!!!! Everything is great

Lovely as always! Beautiful clouds, great angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/02/2005 02:30:10 PM
There are quite a few things I don't like individually with this image but somehow the overall impact overcomes them all. In the end it is among my top picks. Good luck in the voting.

cool picture marbo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2005 09:55:17 PM
This is a really cool shot. My husband looked at it while I was voting and said it reminded him of the effects in the movie Gladiator where Russell Crowe is walking through the fields as he is dying. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2005 06:41:47 PM
The perspective of the boat, against the blue sky really lends a lot to this image. I am a big fan. What is more obsolete that a boat in the desert (or at least it looks like desert). 10.

wooooooooooow, amazing colours, i like it, of the best, good luck

The more I look at this one the more I like it. Upping my vote to a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2005 06:28:02 PM
this is a neat photo. I would like to see the color version or a B&W version to tone down the white of the foliage. other than that great! 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2005 05:43:59 PM
You have it. The contrast is great for the boat and sky. The grass?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2005 04:08:09 PM
I'm not sure of the use of infrared but interesting none the less.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2005 02:45:23 PM
Interesting, but I prefer color to snowy looking grass and vegation. The sky looks purple this way as well. Cool boat - might have worked well in sepia or b/w if you wanted to be different?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2005 10:34:05 AM
The infrared really adds to the desolation feel. Nice job. 8
