About the Image(s)

New Orleans has wonderful places to visit including numerous above ground cemeteries. I photographed this area of one of the cemeteries because I liked the large monument in the foreground, the mausoleums to the side and the curve of the road. The image was shot in infrared and converted to mono using a Nik Silver Efex filter . I used a Sony mirrorless camera with a zoom wide angle lens at 21mm, f/7.1, 1/2500 and ISO at 400.

Cemeteries are one of my favorite subjects for infrared. I like this a great deal. You do have a bit of dark fringing above trees on the left side of the image, but that's a minor nit.   Posted: 09/07/2020 15:32:18

Thank you Henry. I hadn't notice the fringing but will eliminate those areas.   Posted: 09/10/2020 15:53:26

Beautiful image. The monochrome and the snow create a beautiful winter solitude image.   Posted: 09/13/2020 13:43:11

The infra red capture produces wonderful contrast in this scene, lifting the gloom out of a cemetery picture.   Posted: 09/19/2020 14:16:50

I don't know if you are concerned about maintaining reality, but it seems like the road provides a strong line leading me where you don't want me to go. I don't think cropping would be good, but I wonder if a horizontal flip would improve this very interesting image. The line of the tombs just might provide a lead to the major monument. The infrared worked well, the tonal range is good. An excellent monochrome.   Posted: 09/19/2020 21:44:13
