Week 14 - An icon of the Rockies in Black and White.

Mt. Rundle in Black and White. This mountain is probably one of the most photographed in the Banff area of the Canadian Rockies. I couldn't even begin to count how many different post cards a tourist could buy that has this mountain in it in one view or another.

This shot is looking east over the second Vermillion Lake (there are 3 of them). It is a black and white conversion from a 590nm infrared image. It was shot with my 5D III and a 24-105mm lens. Post-processing was done in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2.



As usual, comments and questions are welcome.

Lovely shot of Mt Rundle. It's difficult to get a good image of that mt. Nice work. Lovely sky.

Nice shot. Is the high dynamic range effect, especially in the clouds, due to originally shooting an infared image, the conversion process, or from processing in Silver Efex Pro 2? Or just a bit of everything?

I am not sure what you mean by "the high dynamic range effect", but the original IR image is actually a five image HDR composite (one of my first IR HDR sets) that was processed using Nik's HDR Efex Pro 2, then "adjusted" a bit in Lightroom and finally turned in to a B&W image in Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2. I suspect that the end result is a bit of everything, but mainly the result of the HDR. I can't really tell however, as IR images often render the clouds better than conventional imagery, at least that is my experience. I find that landscapes in IR that have lots of "puffy" clouds in them are one of my favourite types of landscapes to shoot. Sometimes clouds that are only "faintly" visible in regular colour imagery will show up a little better in my 590nm images. Not sure of all the "physics" involved, but I will bet Scoundrel can probably explain it better than I can. Hope that helps.

Thanks WG,
The 5 image HDR composite would do the trick. I'm not familiar with IR at all.

I believe some of it has to do with the hot mirror IR filter cutting out the blues. Additionally, the white clouds will reflect red and IR more (than the blue sky).

Thanks Greg. This makes sense to me.
