X135 UV calibrated f2.8/135mm lens: golden reflected UV ultraviolet photography III

Today I wanted to make the difference visible of those "golden shots" of an autumnal Hydrangea I was presenting the other day. I was using this lens of mine that I have calibrated and used for reflected UV photography a while ago. It has a 5e/5g design and I have posted about it here and here.

I used my special "golden" processing for these autumnal Hydrangea shots that I have used a few days ago. That method I have also used earlier HERE and HERE.

So what you will see is the normal, visible image, the pure reflected UV image and the specially done "golden" shot.

This was some  more "artsy" playing with light then my usual documentary work, but it shoudl still be interesting.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
