About the Image(s)

This picture has been taken in the Pyrenees- France. We were hiking and I had just my camera with my lightest lens: the 50 mm. The scenery around us was really breathtaking. We discovered after this adventure that we were walking through a lake whose shape, from above, looks like a Heart. I found this place very spiritual. The forest seemed very old and the trees' barks were covered with a lot of moss and lichens . It was difficult to render, with a simple picture, my feelings in front of this spectacular/ unique scenery. So I decided to try to capture something using ICM . Here is the result. Hope this picture will have some impact on you.
Camera settings Canon EOS Mark III Lens 50 mm ISO 100 F/8.0 1/4 sec no filters no tripod. Simple editing using Lightroom and Topaz for sharpening.

I think the ICM works to prtray the spiritual feeling that I amagine you experienced and that I get viewing this image. I used a curves adjustment to create a more three dimensional sense and increased the sharpness to create some texture. Just another take and not a critique.   Posted: 07/07/2024 21:30:21

A great choice for an ICM image. Love the colors. I think you did a great job in post processing.   Posted: 07/09/2024 11:00:43

The colors are certainly well-saturated nicely and bright, however, the ICM effect helps the composition immensely. To my taste, the portrait format penalizes the entire composition. I believe that the panorama format would benefit immensely the whole image. If you have another shot of the scene, you can try.   Posted: 07/10/2024 18:39:47
