One more from me. Taken right at noon, with my a Harman Titan 8x10 pinhole and lith printed on Fomabrom.

WOW..... Holy awesome!!!! Not sure I should even bother... Lol

Thanks Stone. Saw this when I was taking a short cut while shopping. Turned back to my car to get the Titan. Forgot whatever it was I was shopping for.

Wow is right! I love the interplay of the lines here and the texture peeking through. How wonderful to see all these pinhole photos too!

That's the spirit! Pinhole before everything (or did you mean a Titan LF camera?) and with good results indeed!
Thanks for sharing.

Here I have a High Noon picture, taken about 12.30 h. near my home in a park. Bronica SQai and 40 mm, Ilford FP4 and Fomatone MG classic. Added 1 more + a Lithprint 4x5 shot with Toyo Field and 75 mm wide lens. (polychrome lithprint blue Moersch)

Here is my contribution, titled "High Noon at the 49th Parallel".

Actually shot at 1:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time.

From the first couple of rolls of Ektar 100 I've shot.

I'll upload it to the MSA gallery as well.

Wow... some seriously nice entries in this MSA, from the very first one to the latest. Color, not-color... lots of good stuff. I can see this is not going to be an easy choice to make!
And still a few more days until the end...

I'm still waiting for Stone's entry. I dreamt about it last night, and can still see the photo my sub-conscious ascribed to him. C'mon Stone! Am I psychic?

*sigh* I've had a lot of work the past 10 days, before that I had none = poor, I was waiting for checks to bring the E-6 roll of color IR to the lab, sadly I just got the checks, while leaving to spend the weekend with my GF and won't be home till Monday night.

I did shoot a B&W shot but had to develop family 4x5's today and couldn't get to the roll of 127 EFKE 100 I shoot at noon :(

I don't have any E-6 developer or I could do that on Tuesday with the B&W roll. The color IR is the one I wanted to submit :/

I'll just submit this for the heck of it, but it just happened to be shot at noon under a shaded tree, the other day, it wasn't intended as a submission...

FOMA100 4x5 in Rodinal 11 minutes (because I forgot to compensate for bellows extension so I pushed it. On my toyo 45a and 150mm f/5.6 Schneider lens. Slight lens shift to line up beard, glasses, and eyes.

I get it that life gets in the way. Still a few days left, a bit of extra time may manifest. If not, hope you post some of your Efke photos whenever they're ready.

He looks like a cool dude, but definitely not my dream......

He's a Seattle-ite... Very beatnick looking ;)

I'll get the EFKE don't but I really wanted to submit the color IR shot

Me too! Ever since Polyglot mentioned this assignment would be good for IR, I've been wondering about it. I've never shot IR so I don't know why noon would be good. I'm really curious now, and I want to know if some of the neat-looking IR photos I've seen were shot at mid-day.

Stone, I hope you will post the E-6 IR even if it isn't ready in time for the contest. I think the MSA is more than just the contest part.

Ok here's one from January 2013 shot on IR at noon... The proof of time is part of the image.

It works well because there's plenty of light (IR films tend not to be very sensitive, I shoot IR820 at EI1 = f/16 1s in full sun including the R72 filter) and for some reason you don't seem to get the horrible starkness of shadow that you do with shorter wavelengths, so it's not as bad for downsides at noon as a normal film. Obviously it can work really well with evening light too, but that's harder to estimate exposure for.

Some examples shot around noon, not in-month: new growth (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/5702731877/), private bay (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/5049668169/), big lake (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/10111032024/) (only a week early!), lake near Peggy's Cove (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/10111030564/) (again), cabot trail (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/10098283823/), Terelj (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/6263646202/), Terelj Fence (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/6262927517/), moonscape (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/4703202804/).

And in evening light (http://www.flickr.com/photos/24125157@N00/8343999353/), showing that that's good too, but not dramatically better than at noon. So if you're wandering around in the noonday heat thinking "damn this light sucks, what a waste of my travel", bust out the IR film.

Wow, what the heck am I doing wrong?

I can't seem to get anything like this, everything I shoot is over exposed and I'm using the proper filter B+W brand so it's not junk.

Is the Rollei just not capable of getting that because it's only in the 700's?

Dunno. What exposure are you using? How are you metering? Which exact filter do you use, i.e. what wavelength? (Mine is a generic uncoated-glass Chinese R72 clone, i.e. 720nm cutoff)

If it's always overexposed, did you, um, try exposing less?

The IR820 is definitely better (more Woods Effect) than the Rollei in side-by-side comparisons, but I've seen decent results from the Rollei on flickr too. And certainly I'm hoping the Rollei isn't toooo bad, since I bought 200' of it in 70mm to use once my little stash of 120 IR820 runs out (4 rolls left). Happily I have about 370 sheets of 4x5 too ;)

This was shot using a Hoya R72 and the Rollei: http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=35625&catid=member&imageuser=6479

See the notes and comments.

I think the trick is that you cannot of course meter for the IR, so you are essentially metering for the visible light, filtering it all out, and then guessing how much IR accompanies the visible light. So as guessing is involved, I recommend bracketing.

This shot is in keeping with the MSA theme, but shot a long time ago. There is another one from the same roll in my gallery.

Those are exquisite. That island out in the distance in "private bay" is like some kind of dream, and so many of those skies have wonderful character even without clouds. I'm stunned by these. I love the way foliage seems to come alive in IR. There is something subtle and appealing about the evening light one, but I sure see what you mean!

Stone's and Matt's examples have lighter skies, which is interesting to think about. Thank you very much for sharing these!

Nice IR examples, thanks for sharing. I like Latrigg Dam (= in evening light) best.
