Phil,
Congratulations on up and coming. However, the photo that you didn't enter definitely exceeds the one you did enter in quality and aptness for the challenge. Thanks for posting it for comparison - awesome.

great job philup, I really love the infared filter and you have used have got a great knack for finding shots that go well with the technique. And I am glad you made the top 5. Congratulations again.

i thought this was startlingly starkly beautiful, and seriously meant my congrats on the blue comment, because i naturally thought it was a given. the surreal / ethereal effect of the white ground, the sharp details of the trees and the gloriously lush blue sky to me meant that it had everything going for it and a ribbon was in the bag. i guess you lost out a little bit because the shadows aren't too significant an aspect of the overall composition. still, congrats on the still very honourable honourable mention.

Puffier, whiter clouds would make a better entry. And there is loss of resolution in spots below the horizon. Still, it's an attractive infrared and false-color, post processing.

06/18/2006 01:28:32 PM
Stark colors work well here.

Challenge: SHADOWS III
Description: Creatively capture a shadow

Advanced Edit
Winter Shadow
Fit: Clearly meets the challenge 1

Aesthetics: Well composed, aesthetically pleasing 2
But the use of shadows is not that creative otherwise this would have scored higher
Technical: Evidence of technical mastery/wizardry 3
Seriously think this is one of the best shots technically in the challenge
Wow: Has some impact 1
Marked down because the shadows do not add to the impact of the otherwise wonderful photo
Total Score = 7

So pretty. Just too centered IMO. Panning the pic up more so the horizon is lower. However, having said that it would mean plenty of dark sky. (8)

The blue in the sky is beautiful

This photo is beautiful. I tried to take a photo similar to this before and I failed miserably. I know how hard it is to do a photo like this and make it this beautiful. Amazing job.

Nice image, but overprocessed a bit as the clouds have a blueish hue to them.

Brilliant composition. And the bleached look really works - places emphasis on the shadows that wouldn't be there in full colour.

infrared fun, nice shot but I would have like to ahve seen longer shadows. But the compostion is great and has definite dreamy feel. I also like that there are no other distracting elements in the photo just tree shadow sky.
