About the Image(s)

This is a shot that I took on an IR workshop . I used a profile in LR to do the channel swap and used CLiR panel to get a B&W. I straighten and cropped the photo in LR, too. I have a more squared version of this but put this one in one completion where it won two awards and is now traveling to other galleries. I printed it on a pearl "metallic" paper which added to the glow I think it has. I used a wide angle (15mm) to capture this on a converted Canon 5 D MIII 720 nm camera. I love how IR (infrared) renders B&W and I have two IR cameras to give me lots of options.

wow I was going to say straighten it but I guess the judges like it the way it is.   Posted: 05/15/2020 14:16:46

The building actually sags because the ground is very uneven. Look at the window of the house in the background, it isn't even a rectangle any more, lol!! The tree is straighter than any of the structures.   Posted: 05/15/2020 15:40:25

I would take out the building in the background.
I would rotate the church CCW.
One of your better images, well done.
You have too many toys, two IR Cameras.
I'm jealous. Jesse.   Posted: 05/22/2020 13:23:34

I'm a camera junkie, I have two IRs and two "regular" cameras plus a hot mirror filter for one of the IRs. You don't want to know about the lenses............... my vice and I intend to enjoy every second of it.   Posted: 05/22/2020 16:06:41

Debbie- I like your shot very much. Wow- it's a perfect image. I will not fool around with this image at all and let it stay as it is. It's a magic image for me!!! I used this film some 60 years back and achieved dramatic results like this but long time back!!

Agree with Jesse on removing the building on the right. I feel that the building needs to be straighten up a bit. Otherwise this is a excellent image.   Posted: 05/25/2020 17:11:55

This is a really striking image. I can understand how it did well in competition. The metallic paper undoubtedly enhanced the photograph even more. Last month Shaik's comment to me was that I am really picky. I have to admit I am picky in regards to keeping lines straight. The church has a slant to it, as you have explained, however, it is bothersome to me. But certainly not to the judges and they have more clout than I do. Keep up with the B&W infrared, it really is impressive.   Posted: 05/25/2020 20:00:07

It is interesting that we have such different opinions on the angle of the church. It is bothersome to me also, but I see that the tree is straight so "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". The smaller building could be removed and we would not miss it.   Posted: 05/26/2020 20:20:21
