A day in Vienna yielded a couple of comparison shots in UV and IR (700nm). The first one is the Mumok (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumok ), the others are from the Belvedere (https://en.wikipedia...lvedere,_Vienna ). I admit that I didn't get all the subjects from the same angle and due to the focal lengths used the IR photos usually have a bit more surroundings, but the differences ought to be visible nontheless.

I find it interesting that the materials used during Baroque are almost black in UV.

Great images. You probably didn't need multiple images to average out the people.
Interesting times, I bet getting a similar image may have earlier been impossible with crowds.

If I could travel, I have thought about crowded places I would like to revisit to photograph.

Thanks. Correct, almost spooky without the busloads of Asian (and other) tourists

Very interesting photos, I like to see the comparisons like this. Does your UV lens/filter combo have a hotspot in the middle? Some of the images (especially the statue in the next to last row) seem to have a spot in the middle.

Stephan, They are all very nice photos. I really like the second photo the most, in many ways. :smile:

Oh yes, it does. I'm using the Eos 6D converted to monochrom almost-uv, so need a filter on the lens. I didn't observe a hot spot with the Soligor 21 mm, but this time I used the Nikkor 105 mm with helicoid, usually at f/16. I would have loved to use it at 5.6 or 8, but my copy seems to have a bit of focus shift and I was taking handheld photos, so the first tries were out of focus. Actually, with practically nobody else there I could have brought my tripod, oh well.

I did try to correct a bit with a circular correction in Lightroom, but it still shows to the observant.

You could try doing a flat field correction like the astrophotographers do? (I am learning A LOT from that community lately. They know some neat tricks.)

So, managed to squeeze in one last trip to Vienna, don't expect to be able to go there again in the next half-year or so. Strictly speaking, the following photos are in the wrong thread, as I don't have their IR-counterparts here, but don't think they rate a new thread.

The photos were taken with my usual 6D b/w and the Steinheil Auto-Culmigon 35 mm f/3.5, mostly at f/8. It does have a bit of a focus-shift, but with some of practice handheld shooting is possible.

The first six are from the "Zentralfriedhof", and then there are the Karlskirche (https://en.wikipedia...iki/Karlskirche) and the Secession (https://en.wikipedia...ienna_Secession), both of which look quite different in UV.
