Transitions

I've created this group with the hope of building a community of serious ICM landscape photographers who have a desire to learn and grow beyond just taking the occasional ICM photo to developing ICM as a primary focus, or as a regular aspect of their photographic repertoire.

Please share only your best ICM landscape/nature work here, as...

Help requested

I am hoping that more will engage with this group. In trying to improve my ICM skills I am finding that the extreme hit or misses can be minimized by an understanding of what does/does not work, and I feel we can find greater success if we share our experiences and work.

This is an image I took recently inside a local wooded area I just...

First attempt

Figured I would try something new. So this is my attempt in ICM photography. I am not sure if I will attempt more of this in the future. But just curious on what critiques more experienced people in this field had for me to help me gain more knowledge just in case.

Mountain flow

Inspired by Stephanie's work and enthusiasm fro ICM I took this image recently. I tried varying techniques to get the feel I was after - this one I followed the curves of the distant mountains to create a 'flow'.

I love the effect this has on the clouds, creating harmony between themselves and the mountains.

One of my favorite...

Beach Painting

Hello everyone,

Here is another take of a beach scene using ICM. This picture is a few years old. I also posted this in the abstract group a few weeks ago but thought I would post it here as well. I really like how there is still some texture in the wave on this one. The water is blurred but you can still tell it's a wave crashing....

Evening Shade

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself."
~ William Blake

An experiment in ICM

I was wondering if the techniques pioneered by Pep Ventosa could be simulated at all on smartphone - not by taking multiple exposures and blending, but by taking a long exposure whilst moving around an object.

This is an early attempt - the object is a globe structure built out of hundreds of fish-shaped pressed metal pieces.

Getting back to ICM

I've been focused on real estate photography for the last two years, but it was a beautiful day and I was so grateful to have the chance to be creative and capture this! I used to do quite a bit of ICM and was really enjoying the abstract nature of it.

late afternoon on the lake

Sailboats sway in the breeze in this lakeside ICM image. Here I tried to create a more painterly and impressionistic view.

I'd be interested to hear what others feel about this image. In my abstracts I like to challenge the viewer to take a longer look to determine content - in my eyes there are enough visual clues but I know I am...

Ocean Sunset

Hello all,
I have posted this before in the Abstract group but I thought I would go ahead and post it here as well. This was actually the first ICM photo I ever took! This was also about 4 or 5 years ago when I was first getting in to photography. I took hundreds more photos that day but none of them came out as well as the first one. I...

the barn at Shelburne

This is an image I have only just taken and worked on. The image consists of a number of exposures taken around the tree, then blended in Photoshop to develop the character of the scene.

As an early attempt at the technique pioneered by Pep Ventosa I came across the challenge of half the tree being in deep shade. This limited the images...
