I see strange things in B&W
Posted By: Eastern Shore Charlie, 02-12-2008, 04:52 AM

Sorry I see strange things sometimes….....I saw this reflection of the sky on the IR sensor from an F-106 from this weekend. I thought it was different and decided to zoom in on it. I was thinking it might look cool B&W when I did it. Also the shot was a challenge to get the exposure correct for the shot.

Now that is a cool shot ! Isn't photography wonderful ? Had I seen that I would have taken a picture as well - a year ago (sans K10D or any DSLR) I might not have given it a second look. Well done.

Is that you hiding behind a camera just off to the left of the nose?

You have a good eye to think in B&W when taking the shot

Nice capture. What also might look very interesting (if the original reflection was in colour) is the reflection left in colour and the rest of the scene converted to B&W (desaturated)

Good capture ESC, and I can see why the exposure would have given you trouble with that great big bright spot on the left side of the IR sensor. I tried something similar over the holidaze with some oversized tree ornaments, but they didn't come out nearly as good as yours.

NaCl(good conversion work as well)H2O

Yes it is me in shameless photographic pose
When I see shadows or a dark subject like the top of the fighter I start thinking B&W for some reason....

The color one looks pretty cool and that is good idea. I'll work on it this weekend.
