Best of January 2015

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 31, 2015, 8:29 AM
Hello everyone.

I hope you're doing well and IR photography is still a delightful hobby or profession to you. The number of submissions in January was a bit humble, but the quality was good as usual. Here are the pictures which in my opinion deserve particular attention:

Dante's View by eprowe Paix sur le lac | Infrarouge by ToneeGee Byways XXXIV by eprowe
Infrared Lensbaby I by LDFranklin Infrared The Drakensbergs at Cleopatra by Okavanga Cayac 3 by ToneeGee
Diva, Timeless? by robpolder model and skull IR by robpolder

Don't forget to vote for your favorite shot:…

General Informations - Rules for r72 Group

New members are welcomed!

Members submit their genuine infrared photographs to our submission folder, which is named after the current month. The submission limit is ten (10!) pictures per week. Photographs which are accepted by the admins in a voting process are later moved to the appropriate gallery folders (e.g. "Magic Trees").

Please indicate in the description of the deviation what ir technique you used - e.g. filter, converted camera, other.

Reasons for declining a submission include:
- Bad lighting conditions
- Over- or underexposures
- Lack of sharpness
- Poor compositions
- Disturbing watermarks (e.g. big dA watermark, or watermark in center of image)
- Non-infrared images or a non infrared "feeling" in the pictures

By declining an image we do not want to discourage your work or your future submissions. Please spend time in our galleries and feel free to ask questions about techniques used to achieve images that impress you.

The making of infrared photos you can find in our tutorial gallery folder -->>… and in gilad's journal -->>… .

hi guys at R72, can I draw some attention to an initiative from our appreciated member Steven,   Phostructor :iconphostructor:, who has a Kickstart project running ==>…. He requires more backers.The project is about an exhibition of infrared photography. Please support him if you can. I think his shots are great and deserve to be exhibited! Cheers, Rob
Argolith Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Hi. Actually I told Steven that he can use the group's journal to promote the project, but so far he hasn't done that. You're right -- his work deserves an exhibition.

thanks for the invitation and features =)

You're welcome!
richardldixon Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014
why have some of my uploads been accepted and others neither accepted or rejected  merely ignored ?
swiftmoonphoto Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Our apologies.  I think it is probably that the admins were on the fence as to whether they wanted to vote yes or no and sometimes things get forgotten.  If you comment on the particular entries those of us who haven't voted can take another look.  If they have expired please re-submit.

I'll be honest and say that I kind of pity the admin in charge for the best of june here... Why? Because 99 per cent of this month IR submissions deserve to be part of the selection!! Good luck to my fellow admin at the end of the month, picking only a few captures will be tough :nod: :rose:
vw1956 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
The support by the members seems to be a bit poor this month!
Argolith Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Do you mean the number of submissions?
vw1956 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Both the number of submissions and commenting on others work!
