Best of October/November

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 29, 2015, 7:05 AM

The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) presents a selection of the best images submitted during the months of October and November.


First, welcome to New Members: Don-Mirakl :icondon-mirakl: StephenBarlow :iconstephenbarlow: Sminott :iconsminott:


Second, my usual plea for help in running the Group - anyone who would like to help develop and run the Group, for example by suibmitting a Feature, or helping with selections of images, or in any other way is most welcome to contact me. For example, our Exposure Techniques section is flagging and someone who is willing to develop that area would be most appreciated.


Third, our sister Group, #R72 :iconr72: is also looking for contributions by way of tutorials, features and so on about post-processing IR photographs. We have lots of such information in our archives in this Group, but anyone keen to help :iconr72: should contact mIkeschwaRz and/or MichiLauke


Now, on with the show!


I think the "people" submissions have been particularly strong over the last two months. I have kept my selections, normally, to one per photographer per grouping, but must mention robpolder (and the birds) for his many splendid works. (OK - I chose two of his.)

 Leah Infrared by jblaschke :iconjblaschke:  Yana by Alexandre1950  :iconalexandre1950:  Darknessdude by Sercy  :iconsercy:

Christina.. by robpolder :iconrobpolder:    IR.Sweeties by mIkeschwaRz  :iconmikeschwarz:

Shoot Noir 2 by robpolder :iconrobpolder:  Goddess with Tattoo by grandart :icongrandart:


Scapes and Stuff

As with the people photography, I've tried to limit my choices to one per member, but would highlight the range of submissions from RuralCrossroads360 for particular praise.

One Curve.. by robpolder  :iconrobpolder:  Byways LXXII by eprowe  :iconeprowe:  On the water by seba-j :iconseba-j:  Spring over Central by ARC-Photographic  :iconarc-photographic:

By The Westmain Bridge(IR) by RuralCrossroads360  :iconruralcrossroads360:  Oldschool Claas by mIkeschwaRz  :iconmikeschwarz:  Window by mugurelm  :iconmugurelm:

 Prague Noir - II by DimensionSeven  :icondimensionseven:


Trees and Flowers

Very much worth highlighting some of these, although they also fall into other categories.

SunThrough by Coopyslav :iconcoopyslav:  Infrared row of trees by Sminott  :iconsminott:  Helix pomatia by mIkeschwaRz :iconmikeschwarz:  Valentine Roses IR IV by LDFranklin :iconldfranklin:



I'm very keen on the use of bold colour in post-processing IR work, so here are a few of my choices. Note in particular the image from myINQI - infrared film - Ektachrome EIR.

Colour infrared - graveyard by Sminott  :iconsminott:  The colors of Autumn - Part XII by myINQI  :iconmyinqi:  :: A Night Without You :: by dewanggapratama  :icondewanggapratama:

 Babylon willow by mIkeschwaRz  :iconmikeschwarz:

The Gate by bamboomix  :iconbamboomix:  Magic is Here by systemcat  :iconsystemcat:  Neist Point - Ektachrome EIR by myINQI  :iconmyinqi:


That's all for now. many thanks to all members for their submissions.

Many thanks to everyone who has been faving my images while I have been off on safari in Tanzania. Given the amount of activity, I'm not able to thank you individually, but I really do appreciate your support.
