I'm confused. Which is the original image?   Posted: 01/02/2022 19:44:33

They should be switched. I did flip the image after processing it.   Posted: 01/04/2022 13:49:12

Sorry, my apology. I didn't realize that the original image was the one IR converted. Although my opinion about the images does not change.   Posted: 01/05/2022 05:56:02

I think the red one is the original IR photo. the picture with the deep blue sky has been processed and straighten. It is my understanding.   Posted: 01/04/2022 17:07:05

Well Kurt, I think that there's only one IR converted image here, as you can see. I believe that either Art got confused, or is trying to confuse us. You know, by now, that Art loves flipping images and I do not understand why he flipped his image here. I suspect that Art is trying to confuse us, right Art?😂😂 Honestly I do not know if the image was converted in camera or in post processing. Happy New Year, in any case.   Posted: 01/04/2022 11:07:57

Beautiful composition Art. A frame in a frame. I am just wondering why the trees are not pure white after the post processing . Do you get the leaves off white in purpose ?
I agree with your choice of flipping the image . The right part is more open and my eyes can travel /read from left to right more easily. nice place to take a break indeed!!!Congrats!

In IR the leaves are whatever color you want. I like white leaves too but I liked the yellow leaves in this one. When using IR film the leaves are white. With digital cameras converted to IR, there is a filter that uses the part of the IR spectrum to produce Black and white images where the leaves are white.   Posted: 01/05/2022 23:11:45

Art I switched the images, as per you request, but now I'm more confused than ever. I thought, obviously wrong, that the point was the IR image. Honestly, please explain, I do not see the purpose in taking an IR image and then convert it to a regular color image. do I miss something? Even one or the other, I think need more careful work. The tree on the foreground, left or right, is quite distracting and I think it should be cropped off. The taking a break focus point needs also some work. Personally I would crop the image bringing that part a bit closer to make it more visible. The chromatic effect is very little and do not give the idea of whatever season we are in. To be honest I prefer the IR image.   Posted: 01/05/2022 03:25:15

I like the original IR image too. I appreciate your feedback and opinion.   Posted: 01/05/2022 23:03:53

What a very nice example of framing within a frame. For me having only two dominate colors that compliment each other makes this image so soothing to my eyes. In my opinion there is balance and contrast with the tree's texture offering relief from the dramatic angles. To me your composition is just right. I like that you were able to line up all the central crosses to add symmetry and balance. I think, as artists, we "do" sometimes just because "we can". Very creative.   Posted: 01/05/2022 09:16:52

Thanks everyone for the great comments and different reactions and perspectives. For me, there is no correct image. There are at least six different IR filters, each showing a part of the IR spectrum and producing different colors and effects. From there, using photoshop (the red and blue channels are switched for starters), the possibilities are endless. The one used here, when processed, caused the greens to appear yellow.

As it is a nice composition showing frame within frame, I expect the central cross could be more sharp and highlighted.   Posted: 01/21/2022 13:16:30
