Supernatural British Columbia2 by bukephalas Supernatural British Columbia2 by bukephalas
Second in series...See part 1 here.

The title is a little play on what I've always thought to be a rather silly slogan for tourism in British Columbia. This was taken a short drive from my university. Playing with infrared again! Was going to go for the more 'traditional' false blue and pink colours, and kept them in this one (as opposed to the first in the series).

Como Lake, British Columbia

p.s.: this is in the heart of the suburbs, about half an hour out of downtown Vancouver. Aren't we lucky?

i keep reading that the D50 can do ir. i think i'm going to have to try it. i disassembled my old camera to try and remove the hot mirror, but failed at the reassembly. well i tried, and now the old one can go in the garbage, and i have a piece of hot-mirror glass to play with sometime.

lol, i wouldn't try that.

just get a filter! it costs 50 bucks or something...much cheaper than a new camera!

Oh no worries. It was my old 3MP glorified point-and-shoot from about 2003. The joystick control has been broken for at least two years. It was painful to shoot with. Well, it did create a handfull of my favorite deviations in its time. But useless once I got the D50. [link] is my final tribute to it. Yes, I do need to snag a cold-mirror filter.

I like the colors in this one, the orangey green in the first one just didn't look all the pretty to me.
The blues go with what the water might/should be.

Damn..... again this is awsome but I must admit that I do like the colors on the other better, but I still love this one! Yeah I must admit that they could be bigger. I have a bigger resolution so it seems a lot smaller to me, but I still love it.

thanks! I must admit that I'm not quite as happy with this one either...but I wanted to see what people thought and if I put it in scraps right away it probably wouldn't happen. I might scrap it later as admittedly, it's not one of my better works.

Think positive! :nod: You now know what works and doesn't! Give it some time it may grow on us, it may even grow on you!

whoa....amazing shot! if anything could be improved...it could be a bit bigger...O.o; for someone with such a small resolution like mine, it's slightly tiny. but ....it's surreal!

bukephalas Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2006
right, sorry about the resolution! I don't want people ripping it either, so keeping the resolution that size (i hope) kinda prevents that. :( thanks for the info though, i wasn't thinking about people with larger resolutions. thanks very much for the comment, glad you like the piece :)

^____^ :hug: no problemo. check your notes! i sent you something. and if you watermark it, you don't have to worry about rippage. that' what i do. just blend it somewhere that would make it irremovable. ^___^

yup, i'll definitely consider it. i've recently been making wallpapers (which are larger) with watermarks so people can download them. i guess i should consider it for deviations too...
