Aside from being nice shots, they are also very informative. Interesting also are the historical backgrounds and the preservation of these centuries old churches.
If eyes were made for the seeing...then...beauty and reality is its own excuse for shooting pictures :)

@cjdelosreyes
i use 10-22. it's just time consuming taking this kind of shots.

@yelbetan
i just added a few note since viewer would realize how old these structures are. but sad to say that some of the conservation of these churches are not really doing well. like the the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church in Oslob. they put in tires around as a perimeters and goat were roaming around. hope the local government or even the archdiocese of Cebu would keep track of the conservation progress of these churches.

i dont know if im qualified to advice didto ha since i just started iR photography few months ago palang and daming pros didto doing IR.
pero anyway. i'll try my best nalang. im using Hoya screw-in filter with 40D so it's expected to do long exposure. i usually do AEB with -3 +3 since it's mostly miss or hit on the exposure. i shot 25sec so -3 would be 20sec then +3 would be 30sec.

I use Hoya R72. the critical part of the shoting is setting up the WB. just google it lang.
