About the Image(s)

let's all give a warm welcome to Chuck, our newest IR DD 91 member
Chuck, we are looking forward to seeing your image every month

The palm trees are in my front yard here in Las Vegas, NV. The image was captured using a Panasonic GX8 camera that had been converted by Life Pixel with a Deep BW 830nm filter. Lens: Lumix G-Vario 12-60mm at 28mm. Settings: 1/80 sec, f/5.6, aperture priority, pattern metering, ISO 200, Manual WB.

I was hoping for a very high contrast between the subjects against a clear blue sky. Processing included basic adjustments in Camera RAW, followed by opening in PhotoShop and adjustments in Levels, Curves, Shadows/Highlights, and the high pass filter with Vivid Light blend mode.

Palm trees are one of my favorite subjects in IR and I really like your intense B&W processing. Excellent job.   Posted: 04/07/2021 13:10:24

Thanks, Henry. I guess I'm partial to extreme B-W, but do like what can be done with color IR.   Posted: 04/08/2021 18:52:39
