Nice use of the IR to produce a very interesting, high contrast photo. The square crop simplifies the image and really make the tree it stand out.   Posted: 06/04/2021 13:59:48

Trees can be wonderful in IR which your image demonstrates very well. I think I would have included a bit more of the foreground as the bottom of the composition feels somewhat cramped. I generally like square compositions, but in this case, I think a 5x4 might be a better choice.
Otherwise, I really like this.   Posted: 06/10/2021 15:55:45

In the original the tree is vertical and the logs in front run
down the slope while in the final the tree seems unchanged but now the logs are more horizontal. Same goes for the slope in the background. Using LR I cound not get the same. Oh,well. I would like the final better if there was more depth in the yellow as this looks rather flat to me.   Posted: 06/11/2021 19:18:25

As I recall, the original image was rotated a bit clockwise, and cropped a fair amount, but I'm pretty sure it is the parent-image. I do agree that the yellow could use a bit more emphasis.   Posted: 06/12/2021 18:10:06
