Thread Title: Infrared images in Nature +

Pamela Hoaglund   Pamela Hoaglund
I posed this question to Sharon. I take infrared images in the black and white tone. I know there are already DD groups for Infrared and monochrome but instead of having to join another group I feel these types of images could also be appropriate in the Nature + group. The image I submitted for March of a snow scene was also taken in infrared and to me conveys more emotion and detail than the color version. I’m interested in what others in the group think.   Posted: 03/05/2022 12:32:15

Your IR snow scene is beautiful and conveys a strong feeling of being out in nature. I believe that IR, B&W, and color all belong in our Nature + group.   Posted: 03/05/2022 17:46:36

I like this version, and I like how you have pulled texture from the foreground. There is good contrast in the sky.   Posted: 03/07/2022 07:09:06

Thread Title: Nature Abstract

Sharon Prislipsky   Sharon Prislipsky
To me nature abstract is an image that presents a natural subject in such a way that it is not necessarily recognizable or is only partially recognizable. It could be shown from a distorted perspective, it could be a small part of a familiar subject, or it could be intentionally blurred.   Posted: 01/18/2022 20:52:39

Sharon, thank you for crystalizing the essence of abstract nature photography! I recently came across a quote by Yasuhiro Wakabayashi, the photographer known as Hiro, that is consistent with your view: "If you look into the camera and you see something you recognize, don't click the shutter." I seem to be doing quite a lot of this now.

Thread Title: Editing Eyes in Wildlife Photos

Larry Treadwell   Larry Treadwell
I happen to be a fan of Matt Kloskowski. He has made a ton of videos featuring tips and tricks for editing images using Photoshop and Lightroom. Today I received a notice about a new video he just posted. It was a tip on something I have been doing for years regarding how to edit eyes in wildlife photos. I'm attaching the link for this video here. The first 4 minutes and the most important but I suggest watching the entire video.
