This is an abstract ICM (intentional camera movement) image of pine trees in a small pine forest I’ve spent countless numbers of hours in the past couple years. These whispering pines are where I did a lot of my first ICM work and where I honed my hand-held ICM technique.
This image is from December and one of the last outings I had in this particular place with my dog before he passed away just a couple months later. This was our special place, and his spirit still whispers to me…calling me back to this place in memory. I hope you enjoy it.
Please list any pertinent technical details or techniques:
An in-camera, hand-held, vertical camera movement was used to create the effect.
Canon G7X Mark II
37mm focal length
I really like the colors and textures of this image.
Beautifully done, great colors and tones. Looks like a painting.
Thanks so much, Richard @Richard_Teller and Stephen @Stephen_Stanton, for your kind thoughts on my image! I greatly appreciate your feedback.
Love everything about this. Color has been mention - all complimentary. Of course these are not easy to recognize in real time, but you’ve chosen quite the perfect setting of trees, forest floor and background.
Well done, a beauty with just soft grace to it.
ps. very sorry about your loss. It’s never easy and most here know and understand…
This is a really beautiful ICM image Stephanie. The tones and composition are especially well captured and thought out. Great work
Very nice abstract. The color and lines are nicely realized.
Despite the ICM the depth of the forest remains and the trees are grounded at the base. Well done!

Lon, Eugene, Preston and Patricia, I apologize for not responding sooner. Things have been a bit hectic for me these past couple weeks, and I’ve not had a chance to spend any time on NPN.
I greatly appreciate your thoughtful comments and feedback about my image, though. Thank you so much for taking to have a look and respond.
