About the Image(s)

I don’t remember where I photographed this grill and window but I did so using my infrared camera - 42 mm, 1/500 second, f/10 and ISO at 200. I converted the image to mono but the result was not interesting “ see mono image. So, I went back and meticulously selected the just grill in the original infra-red color and then colored the background using a Topaz filter. And, finally added a few “eyes” to create All Seeing.

I'm not sure about this one Jim. You have done a lot of work, but converting to mono, and then re-colouring doesn't really work for me. The 'eyes' are the best bit, and several more of these would definitely improve things.   Posted: 06/11/2022 09:07:59

For me, Jim, it looks very busy. I think it would be stronger if you cropped just around the grill.Perhaps even put a texture in the background that will make grill and frame stand out.   Posted: 06/13/2022 13:24:15

John is spot on - this is a very busy image which has elements which I find a distraction especially the bright area on the left hand side. The eyes are a good addition , but did you miss a trick in their placement? How about placing them in the double hoops so that they look like pairs of spectacles?   Posted: 06/20/2022 09:55:48

Unusual processing - it looks a lot of work. I think the eyes would work better if they were in pairs rather than single eyes.   Posted: 06/23/2022 08:46:43
