Light, Space Time: Landscapes

Submitted last week to Light Space Time Online Gallery.  I’ve had some success with them, and they provide a lot of follow-up information on the strategy of preparing contest entries.

So here goes the Landscape Edition:

 

 

Photographer’s Forum

I first encountered Photographer’s Forum as a photography student in Monterey.  So I’m getting re-acquainted by submitting work to their Spring Contest…….

One Image, Four Crops

I’m showing my final choice first:

LongCanyonTree_FinalCrop

I went through several steps.  The Full Frame image is in the upper left, and proceeding clockwise through my steps. First removing some of the excess sky but keeping both trees and the curves; then removing the secondary tree to make a tighter composition; still not liking the sky; removing the sky from the single tree, but cutting out too much of the curve. Finally, settling on the cropped version I liked, deciding that I wanted more of the of the road, which had attracted me in the first place.

Then I took a second look and decided that maybe Crop #3 had some redeeming qualities.  Hmmmmmmm………

Background:  I’ve been experimenting with Infrared Films.  Those that survive, that is.  After much frustration, and seeing my husband’s success with the digital infrared conversion (Nikon-1 mirrorless camera) I opted to have a camera converted to full spectrum for my Christmas Present.  Infrared Images are the only digital B&W I will post on this site.  ot a judgement, just my preference.  Film Experiments and Discussion Posted Here.

Surprisingly Photogenic

Last Fall we stopped at Carhenge.  It was a lovely, sunny, November day.  And walking amongst the Cars, it proved much more photogenic than I had expected.

See all the photos from my trip to Carhenge Here.
