About the Image(s)

An 1800 era farm in the area is now a museum. As I wandered around looking for what to photograph this particular composition appealed with the fence as a lead in to the trees. I first photographed it with the 715nm filter for black and white processing then with the 665nm filter for color. After making a b/w image in Photoshop I decided to play around with the color so opened it in RAW where I selected Auto then added Texture and Clarity. On to P/S where I did a Channel Switch followed by Hue/ Saturation for tweaking the yellow. It was a lot of trial and error to arrive at something in color that I liked.

Interesting other world. I like the colors which surprises me because I usually think most IR colors are somewhat harsh. The only thing that is a little bothersome is there looks to be some noise in the sky. Know I sometimes have issues with IR noise. This might be a good candidate for sky replacement.   Posted: 07/09/2021 11:51:11

The color in this image looks very natural to me. It evokes a feeling of springtime. However, I think the dark sky does not work with it. Debbie may be onto something with her suggestion of a sky replacement. Have you considered cropping a bit from the bottom? I think a more panoramic presentation would improve the composition.   Posted: 07/12/2021 13:18:49

A simple but effective composition. Your use of the fence as a lead in line is well seen. I agree with Debbie and Sharon about the sky. The trees look as if they are in flower in spring. The colours are subtle and look natural. It's a shame that part of a tree intrudes on the left but I doubt that there was anything you could do about this. A very pleasing image.   Posted: 07/19/2021 03:07:33

Very nice, I like your processing. Maybe a bit brighter would be good. There is a little noise in the sky.   Posted: 07/20/2021 09:30:59
