Best of August 2014

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 1, 2014, 5:07 PM
Welcome to :iconr72:'s Best of August feature infrared pictures selected by r72 admins.

August is a bit of a mixed blessing for IR photography (in the northern hemisphere anyway).  The hot weather and high altitude clouds make for great photos, but the hot weather can also keep photographers indoors.  This is reflected in a fairly low overall number of submissions this month while the quality of submissions was quite good.

I hope you like our choices; keep learning, keep shooting, and keep submitting!

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:

Both the number of submissions and commenting on others work!

Maybe it's just a statistical phenomenon and the situation will improve soon.
