Autumn Colors in Summer
Lens: 18-250 with Hoya R72 Camera: Kx Photo Location: Qezon city, Philippines ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 4s Aperture: F5.6

These series pictures were taken to check that the Hoya and Opteka filters used on my 18-250 Pentax, Tamron 10-24, Tamron 28-300, 50mm 1.4 pentaxK lenses would produce similar results as long as the white balance setting on my KX remained the same. So far, there are slight variances noted among the filters but these are manageable.

I still am in the process of exploring NIR and one of the obstacles I have come across is that there is only one possible setting for manual white balance - which is critical in coming up with the colors I wish to come out. I could experiment further if I could compare the manual white balance settings without erasing the previous setting in the camera. Pentax works well for NIR photos.

If you were able to see my earlier NIR photos, the sky colors were dark but in these latest takes, the sky is brilliant blue. I suspect this may be due to the basis of the manual white balance calibration source (plant leaves)

The stated EXIF data are ballpark with the actual EXIF found on the pics.

Hot Summer here in the Philippines Capital reaching 35C but great sunlight for NIR this time through the leaves rather than reflected from leaves
