These are so neat!
I want to snag some and invert the colors.

Part of the difficulty I have with these is that I am using an orange filter so I pick up green, red, and infrared, and because the camera does not expose faster than 1/30 (a Sony limitation with nightshot) they're all slightly overexposed and then "fixed" in photoshop.

As a result, I need to "reinterpret" blue, which sometimes I push into the sky (making the foliage yellow), and sometimes into the foliage (making the foliage purple)

A purist would go monochrome. But part of the point of this is to show how color is not objective, but subjective depending upon how the pigments in the eye interpret objective wavelengths of light. I'm doing a variety of different color interpretations (mostly by rotating the hue) and trying to see if one or another color combination has more of an impact on the viewer. Any suggestions you might have for what you feel works or doesn't work would be appreciated.

My comment has nothing to do with making them better. I think these work really nicely! I just want to invert the colors because I like to do babyish 'art'. Like an electronic coloring book.
My daughter stumbled on all the effects in Photoshop that make your photos look like watercolors, mosaics, charcoals, etc. and soon I will be wasting days at a time playing with those (if I can find them again.)

Lovely sky and i think would look great on a canvas print.


lovely lines and a good catch of light. Jealous of this one.
