About the Image(s)

Made this image in Coolsprings KY, this is a small pond just outside of one of my friend's condo.
It was a nice hot August day, and I thought I would try out my new IR camera. Shot with my Olympus OMD-EM1 Mark III, Lifepixel converted camera.
I used the 14-42 kit lens, at f/4, 1/400 sec, ISO 64. Edited with Capture One, and Photoshop, swapped colors in Photoshop, used one of my actions.
Made the border also in Photoshop.

Wow this is a very colourful image. The colours in the water and reflections are particularly appealing but I feel that the blue sky needs to be darkened a little. The blue colour of the rocks in the foreground also looks a little unnatural to my eye. It is though a lovely tranquil scene and I like the way the edges of the lake lead to a dominant tree in the background.   Posted: 09/15/2021 11:21:01

You have captured a lovely waterscape and a nice reflection. I am amazed that this ws captured with an aperture of f/4 since it looks very sharp all the way to the back. To me, the rocks in the foreground are not helping the image. I can see the temptation to use then as part of the framing of the mirror-like lake, but in my opinon they feel mrore like a visual barrier. I agree with Julie that the cyan cast feels somewhat unnatural. I would try to bring out more blue tones.   Posted: 09/16/2021 15:22:19
