p.1 #1 · Trees on the Hill


I have been experimenting more with my IR filter. This image is a 2 minutes exposer at f8 iso 640.
After I was done processing I made a copy and tried to push it further. Hence the two versions.
Thanks for looking. Comments and/or picks are always welcome.
Chris

Well, not trees technically, Chris but I prefer the second. Over here in the states, this practice of timber management is called clearcutting and it really is ugly until reforested.

I like both, but the second has a few problems.
with the darker sky, the halo at the skyline show up more.
I miss some of the detail in the dark stumps.

Thanks for the pick, Kenny.
Well, sometimes I try to get away with the words I know.

Chris, My pick is the first. Just like the feel it has to it.

Thank you Tom for the comments.
I just tried to fix the halos and brighten up some stumps and reposted.
Glad you like.

I like both versions of the image, Chris.
Being from the US's Pacific North West, any pictures of clear cutting really really get my blood boiling. When I first moved to Oregon some 40 years ago, I drove to and hiked in many old-growth forests. In a coastal temperate climate such as ours, the variety and magnificence of old growth is almost impossible to imagine.
Now we have to try to imagine, because almost all the old growth has been clear cut and planted; they all look like tree farms. And that's what they are.
Photographs are supposed to excite people, Chris- and yours excited me .

Well Charlie, I didn't mean to let your blood boil.
This small hill belongs to an area of sand in the middle of a forest. That's probably the reason for the cutting.
Actually this area is the larges of its kind in Europe.
I will post some landscapes of it when I'm done fiddling with them.
Glad you like.

I like them, the processing fits the subject nicely. Give it a haunting look. I like the first one better.

I like both of these Chris, a combination of the trees in the first with the sky in the second, would be good as well

Chris - the second one looks wonderful with your changes, even better that I would have guessed. good work.

it is interesting that now the forestry service in the U.S. says that major cutting in select areas - but not clear cutting - actually enhances the health of forests. I don't know if we'll see any real difference in forest work, but it may be an improved guideline.
regards, tom

Beautiful shot Chris! Stark, almost haunting contrast between the stumps and the ground cover/soil. Well done!

Tom, thanks for having another look and the complement.
Around here the tendency is more and more to let forest go wild. Like don't remove fallen trees
because they are good for small animals. Of cause there have to remain foot and cycle paths
so people can still enjoy the wild side.
