treetops catch the late afternoon sun in our local park.
If you notice faint rings in the sky, I suspect they've resulted from the processing. Try and ignore them if you can. I do.
isolation is for the viewer to explore.. this is actually quite uplifting and full of hope.. seems to say, 'shine, elevate'..
Looks like an IR image.
The isolation and space leaves this open to interuptition and the mono adds greatly to this
Although beautiful, I feel that your image gives off a rather chilling and somewhat haunting aura...
I find it very calming....love the processing.
The processing has really enhanced the natural beauty of this tree, calming and relaxing feel to it.
There is indeed something of the IR about this, though discreetly so. Looks cold but bright.
"I see no rings" ()
Was indeed cold but bright ( though not infrared ).
Agree with the comments above, it has a IR feel about Alan, I like it very much
The trees sparkle, it's the extremes of light and shadow.
I'm seeing the banding, and yes it's the effect of dramatic processing, exacerbated in compression. I've sometimes sorted it by isolating the area and applying some Gaussian blur...
Yes, I've used that technique before. The banding only appears when the image is downsized. There is some colour noise on the full sized image from darkening the sky in the conversion, which I can probably fix preemptively in the RAW Editor if I start again from scratch.
The strong side lighting is producing highlights and shadows on the branches, and with the winter trees set against the grey of the sky you have a quite striking image.
Don't see any rings you refer to, Alan.
Cheers, Ronnie. Fortunately the rings are very faint, but Moira was reputedly born with the combined visual acuity of several hawks and other miscellaneous predators.
I only see beauty.
Just looking at this Alan and I see that your two trees image is also the featured e2 photo so congrats for that. I realy like these open space shots, I feel as if I'm just gazing off into space and I find them really peaceful. The rings you talk about are from the processing and down sizing, basicly there isn't enough definition between the pixels on the smaller image to give a nice smooth transition in tone so it can step quite noticably hence the rings.
I see the rings Alan, but they dont impinge.....I doubt I would have noticed if you hadnt mentioned it is it called posterisation? this can be added as an effect, I did this to an image of mine ages ago in colour and it looks like a huge rainbow
Almost looks like an infrared shot. Nicely done!
Who would have thought that grey could be so beautiful. Crisp like a perfect winter's day. I can almost hear the twigs snap.
Rings... yep, they're there. Apparently music can help.... Oh, you don't mean tinnitus then!
Strong processing, very effective, Alan. I have zapped these rings before with a touch of de-noise.
Thanks Dave, will give that a try.
Really nicely balanced Alan
