Infrared images with Elmarit 28mm f/2.8

New infrared images, this time taken with the Elmarit 28mm f/2.8 lens. This lens can handle flare much better than my normally used Voigtlander Skopar 21mm f/4. I guess the Leica glass plays an important role in this case. Of course, the much wider focal length of the 21mm makes it more prone to flare.

The sharpness and color of the Elmarit is on a higher level than the Skopar, and also the 6-bit coding helps very much with vignetting. I also find the 37mm (35mm equivalent) focal length very helpful in creating a tighter frame.

With the addition of a 3 stops ND filter, I can get exposures from 2 to 6 seconds during daylight. The great contrast in the sky is a trademark of IR photography and combined with long exposure gives me great results.

Enjoy the rest of the images.
