About the Image(s)

Lancaster Sound, Nunavut Canada. Latitude 74° 31′ N

I recently returned from an expedition cruise through the Northwest Passage, starting in Kugluktuk, Canada and ending in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. I captured this image while taking a Zodiac ride to the glacier. The entire 2.5 week experience was quite remarkable and almost a dream. So I decided to capture that impression in this image.

Panasonic Lumix DC-9 (micro fourth thirds), ISO 200, 88mm at f/11
Luminar Flex plug-in: applied Orton effect
Lightroom: adjusted exposure, rotated, cropped, applied Turquoise and Red preset

What beautiful forms nature provides. You got a really intriguing image of it. My preference is for the original over the colored one. However, when I examined the original, I see that there are shades of pink and cyan already in that multi-varied surface of those glaciers. Your work really emphasizes those colors for the viewer. Fun!   Posted: 10/02/2019 19:36:30

How fortunate to be out there with the glaciers… and what an interesting capture, Well done to get all those grey tones. The addition/ emphasis of color definitely catches the eye, while making me wonder what is this? Looks a bit like I imagine a macro of a pitted tooth might appear. I personally think the colors are too strong, especially in the sky which was such a nice shade of blue. The processing appears to have blurred the upper edges, but maybe that add some depth. Just needs a bear to give it scale…

Hi Bunny - what a wonderful image. It must have been an amazing trip!
I like how you have increased contrast to give depth to the forms. I agree the colours are a little too strong - my preference would be to retain the colours but decrease them for a more subtle toning.   Posted: 10/10/2019 19:50:50

Yes, the colors are not quite true to life. But instead of taming them down, why not emphasize them and make a really wild abstract? Or crop in on some interesting sections? There are lots of possibilities here.   Posted: 10/21/2019 22:32:24
