>Great panorama. The red barn pops. I do the seasonal thing also. I have some panos of a local winery taken in all four seasons from approximately the same position. Trouble with me, is, that I can't stand the cold. So winter is out. Below 40F my hands get cold regardless of gloves. It becomes very painful and takes hours to recover. So I stay in regardless of photo ops.
Thank you for the complement!
Iím a fan of cold weather. Always have been but donít do so well when itís hot. Heck, around here, if it gets over 60 degrees, the webbing between our toes and fingers starts to chafe and dry out. Have you tried heated gloves? There are some which are battery operated, the heat lasts for hours, and they do a phenomenal job.
> The thing that has got my attention now is the patterns that the rows of the newly planted crops create. This condition is short lived as the crops mature the rows disappear. I shot quite a few yesterday as we had a nice sky. Here is one example. The sky is not really that ominous, it is the infrared effect. The infrared really brings out the contrast in the rows and different plants react differently regarding tone. This is all new to me and is a relief as I was getting bored with what I was doing.
This image shows temporal like change and the clouds are just fabulous! It is surreal. I only did IR a few times long ago at school, but when doing b&w I often used a red filter, and it produced skies similar to what you show, but never did have the softness of the foliage.
Another member here does a lot of work with similar tonality, but afaik he doesnít use IR. His name is Ben Rubenstein. He posts more on OPF photography than here. You might like his works.
