Did you notice the hotspot on the dragon photo?

This is the 18-135 that people claim hasn't got a hot spot!

If uncorrected it leaves a blue cast (central shadow area)when adjusting the yellow and red colours.

o.O

I wanted to buy the two girls with the harp, to go in my garden ( for some inexplicable reason).

Regretfully, priced at £30,000, I decided it was a bit of an extravagance. :needsahug:

Purchase the ladies and write off against tax? :lol:

Actually I cant see any hotspot in the dragon.  Your photoshop is too good.
There is a distracting small white/pale blue dot which just needs a wipe with the healing brush between the body and the right wing.  
I wont ask how much the dragon was. ;-)

Where were the photos taken?


BTW: I will change the links in posts so that they show directly in the thread so people dont have to oscillate between posts and gallery.

'People' haven't a clue about normal spectrum photography let alone IR in many cases.

£168,000 for the dragon
£20,000 for the gazebo it's sat on.

Thanks ...can you link the others into the thread as there's was more than one surprise in the wood. :lol:

No photoshopping apart from adjusting the whites....I think the twig in front of the girls is more distracting than the dragon spot...but I guess the bronze bottom takes your eye from everything. :lol:

They were not meant as 'finished' articles...just a bit of fun

If you open the dragon in PS and max the saturation you will see the hotspot more clearly as it appears blue against the boosted yellows and reds.

Are those wolves bronzes?
They look very lifelike in IR.


Where are they located?

The bronze statues were in the UK statue park!

The wolves aren't bronze...they are in a prehistory park in France.

Yes that's the place JK

It's an amazing park...but strenuous, walking round twisting paths up and down to see the 600+ exhibits from closeupand at a distance.

I confess many exhibits leave me cold, but those who captured the human form (as I recognise it) held my attention....especially the female ones.

I don't know if you have visited Porcellino in Florence? It's the bronze boar that you give a nose rub, place a coin and make a wish. It's nose is highly polished from the millions of people that have followed the ritual.. I KNOW if we had the two girls and harp in the garden I would spend much more time out there...and that delicious bottom would become highly polished,

:lol:


The exhibits are interesting from another point of view. When you look at these 600+ works of art, you realise why the chance of selling a 'straight' photograph is so difficult.

Eric I think that Jan might be showing you the contents of her handbag if you did that!

I think that your last paragraph is very true.
