Under the canopy
Posted By: JMR, 05-13-2009, 11:01 AM

Took a few shots at Kortright conservation centre today and forgot my tripod! Not good when shooting in low light. I had to boost ISO to 400 and hold my breath...I mean hope for the best ;-) A couple of interesting shots, BW conversions, if nothing else. Just added a photo showing where I took the trees image, just on the left of the bridge-walk. Wonderful place.

For some reason all my images are appearing in the horizontal mode and I don't know why.

Wow, both of those knock me out. They have that certain something.

Thanks Jeff. I have added a third image to show the beautiful place from which I took the photos. An oasis, just north of the city and surrounded by development. You wouldn't know it was there if you did not know about it. I was looking down and across to the left when I took the trees image. Wonderful place.

Great spot. I like the third one too. The three together definitely have a poetic mood.

Wow, I like the treatment on #1. Great series! I agree about the horizontal arrangement being a bit odd.

Regards,
Marc

Thanks Marc. Any idea what is causing the images to appear horizontally?

JMR, I really like #1, but the tones look flat. It needs a tweak with the contrast setting.
Better still, this shot is cryin' out for a PP Infra-red filter effect.

Jus' my two cents.

Always glad to view those images JMR!

Now this is interesting: I am at home now and it's tiling vertically instead of horizontally... Let me know if you see the vertical alignment now instead. May have to clear temp files, etc.

Cheers,
Marc

J', can I have a go at processin' your first image? I think this shot of yours is an absolute stunner, it is so well composed and framed.

I created many versions since I first saw this image. I know it looks good in high contrast, but I tried to be a little faithful to the actual scene without overdoing to it too much. Anyway, go ahead, I will post the other two here.

Thanks Marc. My stuff is still appearing on the horizontal axis.

The first one is stunningly simplistic (or is it simplistically stunning?)

I like how the first one look like pencil drawing. Very cool. IMHO, the PP'ed version is overdone.

JMR, these are really nice images, as to contrast on the first one I would probably go with something in between the original and the last one. Thanks for posting these. Oh yes, the original post is in horizontal orientation.

Hey you, Gary, thanks. But can you tell me how I can reset my images back to vertical alignment?
