I have a couple of friends that do infra red and I certainly like the effect, the sky looks great but I would bring out some detail between the trees and the clouds   Posted: 07/15/2021 04:29:18

My husband also converted a Fuji for infra red, and the way the foliage comes out always amazes me. The otherworldly tones of the trees make the magnificent storm clouds look even more menacing. I think that the horizon is very well spaced to give room for the sky. Maybe also the waterline might be a little lighter to show some details?   Posted: 07/15/2021 12:03:49

I am intrigued with infra red photography but have not tried it yet. I really like the effect it has on the trees. Your sky is very dramatic and the IR adds to the an ominous effect.   Posted: 07/18/2021 16:09:53

A very dramatic (to my eye) sky in particular, and image in general. Looking at the image I really get the feel that a storm is brewing. I almost expected to see farm animals heading to the barn for shelter - very realistic to me since I spent 4 years in a school in Northern Indiana and saw this kind of sky several times - not to many thankfully. The last time I saw such a sky we had a tornado go by, we escaped damage but it left a lasting impression.

To me, the infrared treatment worked well making the sky very dramatic. I also like how the trees at the edge of what appears to be a body of water appear. I think your change to the color balance work nicely.

Thank you for sharing it with us Albert.   Posted: 07/18/2021 21:48:59
