I’ve been neglecting the infra-red images I shot on the last couple of trips I took so I spent a bit of time yesterday playing with some of them. I love the look of infra-red images but they do take a lot longer to process than their visible light cousins unless, of course, you are looking to post something that looks like an old colour print film negative.
This image is an IR HDR that I shot while spending a day with Bob Lussier in Lawrence, MA back in September. It shows part of the Pacific Mill complex and, now that I look at the thumbnail, reminds me of a great way to spot halos in HDR images 🙂
I find that halos become far more obvious when you down scale an image and it seems that I really need to replace the sky section of this one. I didn’t see the problem when working on the full-sized image.
Whereas most people encourage you to check your image at 100% (for dust spots or other small blemishes), I would encourage HDR photographers to check their image at 10% and, if problems are seen, go back and fix them. Next time, I may even take my own advice!
