Early Spring outing
Posted By: JMR, 03-31-2009, 11:24 AM

Touring the farmlands as I made my way to the infamous Badlands of Cheltanham. Started with a self shadow shot to give an idea of this eeirie looking landscape. Notice how, depending on the angle of light, whether you over or underexpose, the texture and look alters quite a bit. The greenish stripes are minerals that make their way to the clay surface and you can see them up close and small in the third image.

Nice job, as always, JMR. I particularly like the texture of the second one.

All first rate, but the 4th one is particularly fine. Love that first shadowy self portrait too.

Thanks, it took a while to work on the 4th as I had to bring the shadows in line with ambient light.

Though similar it is not the same shadowy figure- whoever he is he sure helps me out quite a bit.

Thanks. It is funny, that when dealing with a familiar scene, you think how I can look at this differently. At first it is difficult but something comes to you.

Thanks guys. Yes, the last shot lent itself beautifully to BW-infrared-like treatment.
