One Image, Four Crops

I’m showing my final choice first:

I went through several steps.  The Full Frame image is in the upper left, and proceeding clockwise through my steps. First removing some of the excess sky but keeping both trees and the curves; then removing the secondary tree to make a tighter composition; still not liking the sky; removing the sky from the single tree, but cutting out too much of the curve. Finally, settling on the cropped version I liked, deciding that I wanted more of the of the road, which had attracted me in the first place.

Then I took a second look and decided that maybe Crop #3 had some redeeming qualities.  Hmmmmmmm………

Background:  I’ve been experimenting with Infrared Films.  Those that survive, that is.  After much frustration, and seeing my husband’s success with the digital infrared conversion (Nikon-1 mirrorless camera) I opted to have a camera converted to full spectrum for my Christmas Present.  Infrared Images are the only digital B&W I will post on this site.  ot a judgement, just my preference.  Film Experiments and Discussion Posted Here.

The Eclipse on Film

I have to say the digital images turned out better……  Note to Self, I should have practiced more with my equipment.  But since this Page is about Film……Here you go:

Totality

I’ll be ready for 2024……. But what I did do right was actually ENJOY the eclipse and all the miraculous and wonderful sights that occur…….These are forever etched in my memory.
