From my converted Canon 20D, an infrared shot originally intended to be a silhouette, but closer inspection showed the Okavanga Effect, and luminosity processing brought out a range of tones in the original "black" silhouette.
Great shot, David!
This is mind blowing - a brilliant example of your Okavanga effect
This is a great picture, David!
This is just awesome, David! Love the contrast and blue of IR.
Many thanks, Sheri - I am very pleased you like this one - it seems to have been a hit. This was a reject from a shoot in June. I had wanted a silhouette, but the RHS was over exposed and everything looked a mess. Thus, it was in my reject bin. But, I came across what I now call the Okavanga Effect, and this image hit the spot as an example. In addition, I had been messing around with those luminosity masks, and hey presto this image popped out. I particularly like the detail on the trunk of the tree.
Many Thanks Again
Incredible! I'm always amazed!!!!
Hi Brenda - many thanks - it is a bit of an eye stopper - and all from an original that was over-exposed!
that is soooooo amazing...with the little ray of sunshine <3
Many thanks, Georgia - glad you like it.
Many thanks - I've added the link to my journal on the Okavanga Effect.
Love the angle, and the cold, very Wintery feel!
Yes indeed - cold and wintry it was, Linda - in the middle of June! Yes, these techniques can radically alter the perception of weather in an image. I'll need to exploit that a bit more.
Ah yes David, now that I look at it again I can see there was a technique involved. I'm afraid with this polar vortex we are experiencing, 'cold' is all that I see.
We've been hearing about the Polar Vortex, Linda - yes, not so good if it goes on for any length of time, but keeping indoors seems the best policy. But, you guys always cope better than us when there is severe weather. We have had some storms that are not unusual at this time of the years, and it is, for our media, the end of the world as we know it. Waves crashing over seawalls - who would have thought it! Why was a seawall built in the first place? Thousands of houses flooded!!!! Apparently this has never happened before, but then you find they are all new houses built on flood plains... built there because....
Really beautiful colors.
