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...

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...

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.

I...

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....

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...
