HI John,

I think this is a good subject for IR. You've processed it well with the false colour showing through really well in the foliage and sky. For me the tree itself is still a little too warm in terms of tone. Overall the image could benefit from a touch more contrast. Have you used the curves adjustment layers at all in PS? Apply one to this image and then adjust the line to form a very shallow S curve - as you push the upper element of the line up you will boost the highlights and lighter image tones, and as you pull the lower section down you'll darken the shadows and darker tones - overall your adjusting contrast. You can also apply a mask layer to this and paint out those areas where you don't want the contrast adjustment to take.

Finally, you ought to consider a mono version of this. Mono allows you to really push the contrast in images - and I am finding this a particular benefit in my own IR experiments. Indeed, I am in agreement with David Clapp's recent epz technique piece that most IR images seem to work best in mono.

Hope all is well - and keep them coming...

Adam

Adam, a long time vet on ePZ devotes much time and detail to your 'super' tree. Proof that this image of yours is worthy and a delight. TG
