~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to :iconr72:'s Best of July feature infrared pictures selected by r72 admins.

 Summer has come to the northern hemisphere and the submissions increase and show a high level of IR photography. A lot of excellent contributions from the r72 members were submitted within a short time to r72. Also the new challenge "STARS" enhances the spectrum of IR art and shows fantastic shots of nebulars, the milky way, and the origin of life and r72 community at all :) - please keep going on in this way...

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

A lot of great submissions r72 received from :iconmyinqi:myINQI :

And the winner of this month's poll is:

byssus by sorny

Big congrats to :iconsorny:sorny!


Hello members of the :iconr72:r72 Infrared photography group, and welcome to our Best of June monthly showcase feature.

June was a very good month for us not just in terms of quantity, but of quality.  In fact about 1/3rd of all this month's submissions were nominated by our admins for this feature.  And since this is a photography group and not a small talk group, without further ado, here they are:

~~~


:iconokavanga:
Okavanga brings us this interesting variation of IR photography in which he uses a red filter on top of an IR converted camera to yield this unique effect (as a side note, his many journals are a great resource for those of us who are interested in the science of light and photography [looking at you IRphotogirl]) :


Bruntis Loch by Okavanga


~~~


:iconrobpolder:
robpolder continues his mastery of human IR photography along with a very well timed areal shot:


Jump by robpolder}{Dream Away by robpolder
