    The Picnic Grove

    This was taken at the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie (infrared image). It is the first national tall grass prairie in the US, encompassing 20,000 acres of restored farm and industrial land.

    Good eye for contrasting subjects, Yvonne. I have read some infrared photography books and at times they do tell that it's a bit hard to really predict the outcome of the shots depending on the IR data captured. In here, the dark contrast of the picnic table really makes it as a strong main subject against the brightly converted vegetation from the IR shot. Well done! The composition is really great, too.

    Nice!! I think I would also like this with just the picnic benches in the grass. I love the starkness of the unused benches and the beautiful light in the grass.

    And yes Jiro, sometimes I'm still surprised at what comes out. Like this image below, the hat was definately black when I saw it with my eyes, but as you can see in the picture it came out totally different. Also, the shirt was a dark blue print.
