About the Image(s)

While on a recent road trip I spied this bunch of Palms that were lit up during a break in the stormy skies. I took images with both my regular camera and my converted infrared camera. I played with several possibilities of color in post processing and this was my favorite color scheme. I then mirrored the image.

I haver never gotten into IR, but find it amazing what it can do. This is a very unique image. I like the way you included the statue in the foreground, the one above the bush line and the one hanging from the center of the trees. They really tied it together in my opinion.   Posted: 01/10/2022 20:27:13

I did not include any statues. The illusion is the result of mirroring the image. It will often create faces or objects where the image is combined.   Posted: 01/14/2022 10:29:12

Wonderful picture! Your color choice and the decision to mirror the image works very well. It looks like some sort if alien life form. Perhaps the new James Webb telescope will find something similar :-). The only suggestion I have is to remove the faint seam where the two images are joined.   Posted: 01/11/2022 11:32:35

I thought I had removed all of it; but after your comment, I went back and took a closer look. Thank you...I think I got all of it now.   Posted: 01/14/2022 10:24:30

I very much like what you have done, but I can't help thinking this image is crying out for a path leading to the portal.
Very creative.   Posted: 01/14/2022 03:01:04
