About the Image(s)

When visiting the Gettysburg National Cemetery, I photographed Pennsylvania’s Memorial with a very wide angle manual lens (probably at about F 8.0) at 1/4000. In Photoshop I converted the original infrared image to mono, straightened the curve distortions, cloned out people and a large tree, increased contrast and reduced noise. Then using a Topaz filter, I tinted the original mono image.

This creation is very moody and what you have done helps to suggest the tone of the subject. I like it a lot and reckon it doesn't need any improvement!   Posted: 08/07/2022 05:49:01

What a cracking image this is. Strong comosition and wonderful sky. Using such a dark sepia tone really gives the image punch.   Posted: 08/13/2022 14:20:01
