D800 IR Trinidad Woman

According to Jay Maisel there are three main elements to every photograph: light, gesture and color. Light and color are obvious but it is gesture that is the most important. There is gesture in everything and it is the photographer's job to find the gesture that is  most telling. Because I cannot seem to leave well enough alone believe that there are four main elements: light, gesture, color and time. For me the most successful images are the ones where you can see/feel the movement of time, that the moment between is captured.

This image was captured during my morning walk in Trinidad Cuba  by a Nikon D-800 camera modified for infrared. Super Enhanced color conversion done by LifePixel with a 24-120 mm Nano coated VR II lens
using the Nikon electronic file format (.Nef) Shot on Lexar 32 gigabyte 1000 speed UDMA Flash media. file was post processed using capture NX 2.0 software, Nik Color Efex 4.0 and Silver Efex Pro 2.0.
