I wish there was more focus up front but this is still an impressive HDR so GL!

I liked the other one better but that's just IMO (in my opinion) This one it's hard it's a wedding. I'll hold my vote in case you feel like changing it.

Here's an idea, crop out the bride. Then edit your entry by going to my stuff/my contests/edit entry.

I would just flag the other one for removal but you can just replace it as well. I think this shot is better.

Using 2 photos of the same bride is not a good idea, I suggest you remove one of them before the Mods remove both.

Actually I think it's both hand and cigarette and I feel it does add subtle interest. I can relate to this BTW. GL!

Here's my two cents. I like it! In fact I feel it's one the the better entries so I disagree as far as being off theme. Wiseman, the grass is white. I feel there's plenty to dominate the shot. I really need to look into getting some of these filters. GL to you author! High marks from me.

Actually, I'm rather amazed at the sharp foreground and bottle, i have been trying a bit of IR lately and everything on my camera gets kinda "soft and noisy" nothing is as sharp as this...author, any tips?

avatar adeincyprus

all good arguments, but, and I still say it...............there is no 'dominating' white in the shot, as per the guide requirements. The desaturated/ir filtered grass is gray......the bottle is still glass......and the upper of the shot is a mish mash of darks and lights. The shot has it's own merits, I am not saying I do not like it, just that, imo, it is ot because of the lack of white!

Ziggy, I certainly wouldn't push but.... I do have to disagree with you completely. What made this shot for me was the fact that the trees and sky weren't in focus. I think it adds an ethereal look to to it and helps draw you're focus to the bottle.

(5 years and 2798 days ago)

avatar UncleJimmy

OK...(not pushing)...I believe it WAS taken with an IR filter,a nd depending on the frequency of the filter ie...720nM or 650, 900 and so fourth, depends on which colors are blocked and "allowed".

Well let me put my neck back in the noose.

I don't believe how it was taken automatically qualifies it as a great shot. Personally I believe the top half of the image is ruining it for the bottom half. If this image was of the grass and the bottle I could really appreciate it, but for me background of sky and trees, which have not been handled with loving care by the IR filter are a non contributing part of this image.

Ok, I am on the chair, you can push now.

Well IMO, if our eyes sees most white in the shot , its on theme. Even if its desaturated or not, that wouldn't matter as long as it looks white. When we say the color white should be on focus, that is more figurative than literal...

(5 years and 2799 days ago)

Here's my thoughts. If this was indeed taken with an IR filter then the grass isn't desaturated it is indeed white, or at least we view it as white. Anytime you shoot in IR the sky will appear black and anything with chlorophyll will appear white i.e. grass. It's true that to our eye this grass would appear green, but to the camera's eye it looks white. Just looking at the channels would show us that.

are you asking 'what is white' as in what is white in the shot, or are you asking exactly what is white, as in the definition of white?
