Ask a stranger to pose....

So I ask a couple to pose for me by the Petronas Towers and then everyone wants a shot!

Very challenging lighting - sometimes needing to back the flash off, other times not!

First day in Kuala Lumpur - Petronas Towers

Hi all

Apologies I've not posted much for a while - I plan to post more over the coming weeks.

Today I arrived in KL and I am staying near the Petronas Towers.

The first shot is the typical one - taken from the hotel 'SkyBar'. With the second I went for a quirkier angle - I was more interested in the geometry than the colour so I converted to black and white in Silver Efex.

Selective colouring Sywell in 720nm

I liked the blue in this after reversing the channels from a 720nm shot, but thought the water tower would look better in B&W so had some fun with layer masks in Photoshop.

590nm IR Shots

Here a couple of shots taken on my full-spectrum 450D with a 590nm filter fitted to the lens.

After some initial trouble I feel like I'm starting to get somewhere with false-colour IR although for some random reason I have to convert to tiff in Lightroom before I can get the white balance anywhere near right!

First a tractor in Robin Hood's Bay near Whitby

Second - a shot of Puy-de-Dome:
