About the Image(s)

I stopped by Cox Arboretum last Saturday to do some Infrared, and Flower photos.
I made this shot with my Olympus EM1-Mark III IR 590 converted camera.
Shot at f/8, 1/400 sec, ISO-200, at 14mm.
Converted and processed with Capture One 22, and Photoshop 22
It was overcast, so I added new clouds.

This has nice leading S shape lines, made more clear from the white of infrared. I am enjoying the tree in the curve and the entire scene. Good choice in adding the clouds, and well done they look natural.   Posted: 05/08/2022 18:18:56

This does have a beautiful curve but I am wondering what made the sidewalk change color abruptly? In the foreground it is black then suddenly turns white. There is a lot to see in the scene as the eye "goes down the path." Near the top left corner, the black area is no doubt the blue sky rendered totally black by the IR. If you could lighten it - dodge it or even move a small cloud into the spot - it would not be as blatant.   Posted: 05/15/2022 08:03:26

I do like this image; one thing that stands out is the sharp focus of the grasses next to the sidewalk. Another is the overall contrast in the image, although a bit dark. The clouds are definitely a pleasing addition.   Posted: 05/17/2022 18:59:47

Great lines in this and I do like the addition of the clouds! Beautiful scene but I do think it could be brighten just a tad. Have the same question as Stuart, what caused the side walk to go white?? Could it have been wet and the sun's reflection or was there something growing on it or was this wood which can look different in IR? Inquiring minds...........   Posted: 05/20/2022 11:42:54
