    Are we SiJ'ing next month?

    Just a quick query, and my apologies if it has already been discussed and decided... Is there going to be a Single in January next year? Asking 'cos I have a new camera (and not the one you think!)

    SiJy 2019 Day 31

    Hi folks, here we have the final one for SiJy 2019, it's been an amazing experience for me. Let's see your photos. Here's mine, I realised after I came home to process the photo when I took a look at the details, that this street rehearsal was probably for their Army Day (1st Aug.) performance...

    Single in July (SiJy) 2019: Who's in?

    It's that time of year again ... A while ago we agreed on trying the "Single in" challenges at different times during the year, adopting a nine-month cycle as an attempt to break away from recurring subject matter. This time, we're hitting summer in the northern hemisphere and mid-winter in the...

    Si0 2018 - how's it been, and how to move on ...

    As per Bill's announcement, here's your place to look back and vent - and to discuss future adaptations of the format. In spite of the fact that it was a real rollercoaster ride for me (mostly due to the unpredictability of my chosen setup), I loved most aspects of the challenge. Once more, for...

    SiO 2018 - mid-month reflections: How's it going?

    Traditionally, after having reached the half-way point, we start discussing and reflecting on the current challenge, personally as well as conceputally. Please feel free to add your thoughts and observations. It might have been a good idea to have such a "venting" thread from the beginning - it...

    Single in October 2018: Who's in?

    Hello everyone, As promised, I propose the first Single in October Challenge on This is meant to be our new take on the time-tested "Single in" concept that resulted in a row of SiJ (Single in January) events over the past couple of years. For those who missed the discussion...

    SiJ 2018 - we made it! Thinking back - and ahead ...

    Folks, Bill has - most graciously - asked me to wrap up this year's Single in January challenge. I'll seize the opportunity to initiate a discussion about how it should be carried out in the future. I find it hard to express how much I enjoyed the whole affair - even though it may have been...

    Anyone game for a Single in January 2018 (SiG18) challenge?

    I don't know about you, but as is common for the end of the year, I'm thinking quite hard about what to do with some of my gear - and I'll probably let go of quite a healthy portion of it. But the stuff I intend to keep, I also intend to use. I'd love to have the opportunity for some hardcore...

    SIJ 2015 - Day 31

    Move Along Now. 25seconds f/9 ISO200 shot at 40mm. Taken on the same night as day 30. Was really enjoying the longer exposure images. You could do these one right after the other and no 2 would look alike. I think I'm going to make a thread and post some more of the shots for the last two...

    SIJ 2015 - Day 30

    Burning Through. 0.6sec f/6.3 ISO 1600 shot at 40mm. Messing around outside again at night, playing with trees and the moon. I had fun trying to figure out the compositions I wanted and trying to picture the next one.

    SiJ 2015 Day 31

    Final day and I have reprocessed an image to introduce false colour using the limited tonal range that IR collects. I set the WB from the neutral pavement and boosted the green channel for the foliage. Not sure I like the result :( or the power lines.
  16. SIJ 2015 - Day 29

    SIJ 2015 - Day 29

    Cloudy Night. 1.3sec f/4.3 ISO3200 shot at 53mm Was outside playing with long exposures again. There's something fun and enjoyable to me about doing long exposures at night. Maybe its the quietness. I don't know, but I know this summer I will be out more at night as it will be more enjoyable...

    SiJ 2015 - Day 30

    This is a faux colour stitched from 4 images in Autopano Pro. Channels swapped in Zoner and texture added in Perfect Effects. It is a bit more grungy than usual.

    SiJ 2015 - Day 29

    Further exploration of processing. Zoner Photo Studio does not alter the colour balance of RAW files like Lightroom does. Channel mix gives a more workable result for faux (false) colour. Left as RGB with no mono conversion.
  21. SIJ 2015 - Day 28

    SIJ 2015 - Day 28

    Highlighted. 40sec f/4 ISO200 shot at 85mm. Shot the same night/morning of the 27th image, this was technically taken on the 28th. I thought the light was neat on this one.
  22. SIJ 2015 - Day 27

    SIJ 2015 - Day 27

    Silhouettes. 40sec f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm. Thought the overcast night with the glow from the lights gave neat atmosphere. Spent a while outside getting different shots and really liked how this one turned out.
  23. SIJ 2015 - Day 26

    SIJ 2015 - Day 26

    Winter Decay. 200s f/5.6 ISO640 shot at 116mm.
  24. SIJ 2015 - Day 25

    SIJ 2015 - Day 25

    Let It Snow. 80s f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm. The tiny bit it snowed on the 25th, it had some nice fluffy flakes. Shot out the window.

    SiJ 2015 - Day 28

    Looking for inspiration and liking a shell image posted recently I tried this one. It is still IR but a few things are different. 1.) I shot in RAW; 2.) I did the channel mix in Zoner Photo Studio Pro as I don't like how LR and PS change the image; and 3.) I did the mono conversion in Perfect...

    This is a 4 shot vertical pano in IR. Red and blue channels swapped in PS and then further developed in Silver Efex. The PP has introduced some posterisation in the sky. The other thing of note is the shot was taken into the sun and a lot of foliage was in shadow. The foliage is less white...

    Very hot (40C) here today so took a late afternoon trip to the park. This is a 6 shot pano in IR and converted in PS and further developed in SEP2.

    Foggy Moon. 8sec f/4 ISO200 shot at 40mm. I got home from my cousin's daughter's birthday party and noticed the moon looked neat with the nice blue sky, so I decided to get a shot of it. Then proceeded to play around with getting different shots. I mean might as well while I have the camera...

    SiJ 2015 - Day 24

    A three shot pano of my (untidy) desk. Taken in IR and channel swapped in PS. Also adjusted exposures to match as flash was used. Stitched in Autopano Pro and final tweaks in LR using grad filters to better blend exposure. All wood surfaces are Jarrah which is a deep red/burgundy.
  36. SIJ 2015 - Day 23

    SIJ 2015 - Day 23

    Sparkling. 250s f/5.6 ISO800 shot at 150mm. All the snow is pretty much gone from being up near the 50's last week but behind the house there's a bunch of ice and along the edges it has a cool texture. I used the flash to make the ice sparkle.

    SIJ 2015 - Day 22

    This Is How We Watch TV. 125s f/4 ISO400 shot at 40mm. Babysitting my youngest niece again. Sometimes she doesn't sit to watch tv. lol
  38. SIJ 2015 - Day 21

    SIJ 2015 - Day 21

    Wagon Bolt. 125s f/5.6 ISO400 shot at 150mm. Played with the little flash that came with the EPL5. Not the best output but it worked. I also had some more fun in post with textures. Was originally going to post the B&W one but I liked how the textures added to this image.

    RIP Coolpix A I slipped on the ice and the camera hit a rock, lens is jammed and bent and the battery door won't close.

    SiJ 2015 - Day 23

    Converted from IR in PS and toned in Perfect Effects. A forgotten corner of the garden. The leaves are actually a deep burgundy.

    SIJ 2015 - Day 20

    Grungy Dreams 2500s f/9 ISO640 Shot at 40mm. So I messed up on the 20th, with being busy and got preoccupied with other things I forgot to take a picture. Here is one from the other day that I processed on the 20th, does that count? haha More playing around with textures.

    Textured Sunset. 100s f/4 ISO200 Shot at 45mm. Was a beautiful sunset again with neat clouds in the sky, but wasn't able to get out to capture it. So just a shot through the window. Played with some textures in Perfect Effects 9 too.
  48. SIJ 2015 - Day 18

    SIJ 2015 - Day 18

    Trees By Night. 20Sec f/4 ISO200 Shot at 40mm. Tried some long exposures out. This one was one of a few that came out and I processed it in OnOne's Perfect Effects 9. Really liked the different style of this preset.
