Vancouver Island with watching Eagle - a study in pastel colours. I think this one needs to be BIG for full impact.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone for the pastel shot of Vancouver Island. Here's another from slightly later on the same evening:

Probably should not have done that now I want prints of both of them....
Where do you GET those colors?
infrared neutral density filters?
where did you find those?
As Vincent mentioned, Tiffen IRND or regular Lee Big Stopper & .9 ND will shift white balance and balance/smooth tones out. I posted some set up shots etc over in the Behind the Scenes thread too.
The base colours I have to rely on Mother Nature and being there at the right place and right time. No secrets there unfortunately.
Decided to head down to LaJolla for this twice a year opportunity shooting the sun setting through Scripps Pier. Couldn't quite get my camera position perfect (I was the 4th photographer there, ended with about 15), so I'm slightly off centered under the pier. Sun sets centered in the pier 3 days in early May and again in the first part of August, with one day where the sun is centered when it is about 1/2 showing. That's the shot I was after. Sky wasn't perfect, but not bad, glad I got a decent shot knowing there wasn't much room for error and quite traveling quite a ways.

Wayne - I saw this on your blog and it was very very interesting. I totally understand the scrum of fellow photographers at times when iconic events occur!
Btw, I note that you are using the Tiffen filters in 100mm fitting vs screw on. Do these come with gaskets for light sealing against reflections? (the big stopper has this but I have to use gaffer tape when I stack with a .9 ND Lee).

Been inundated with work, holiday for whole of July and now back at the grindstone again, but one of my fave girls was in today and we did a bit of light painting... this was a proof shot really for some 10x8 large format stuff I want to do... (imagine using a hassy as proof for 8x10 film.. haha crazy topsy turvy world we live in)
Sharp is overated....

I would love to see your tree, they are kind of a fetish for me. I'm off to Charleston, SC today to photograph a few famous trees there.
Sooo, peaceful, as always you did a great job
Graham, simply stunning capture...I'd love to see it big, hanging from a wall!

The Tiffen glass LEE fit filters do have an appeal to me. Right now I have to wrap my big stopper and 3 stop ND with gaffer tape anyway so it wouldn't be a burden without the gasket.
That Tiffen filter done on those shots sold me, i am looking for to get one, i bought LEE stopper last week locally to my full surprise, but there is no Tiffen dealer here in my country, but i don't know which Tiffen NDIR Indie to get?!!!
Has anyone tried the less expensive and available Formatt Hitech 10 stop filter ?
Camera Filters: PRO STOP : Buy PRO STOPs online
I have the Hitech and it has a very large color shift. I would only use it for B+W. Lee Big Stopper arrived recently, but haven't tested it yet.
Can the colour shift not be neutralised using a grey card or LCC? Confused how it can kill things so badly that you get left with B&W only.
The color shift is from IR contamination which leads to not only too much signal in the red channel, but also objects in the frame don't have the same response under IR making impossible to get back to a natural balance.
So the filters for this kind of thing need better IR filtration?
Ben, this is a test I posted about trying to fix the IR contamination in B+W filters with an IR cut filter. That illustrates the problem nicely.
