Brilliant reds and yellows pop from these images because of the use of a rare-earth filter.
Jim DeLillo has announced today that he has added new images using this technique to his 'Autumn' gallery at
These images were recently taken in New Jersey and enhanced using the special on-camera filter to further saturate and beautify the colors of the fall foliage.
The filter is made from Didymium, a mixture of the rare-earth elements praseodymium and neodymium. Filters made from the material selectively block colors while letting other parts of the spectrum through.
And, blue skies will always benefit from a polarizing filter.
The photos added to the gallery include "Liquid Autumn", where DeLillo has composed the photo to include only the reflection in the ripples of a pond.
"I like to look for the unexpected." DeLillo said. "One of the best ways to find a new angle is to look in reflections."
DeLillo's collection at Fine Art America includes other brilliantly saturated subjects and all are available as cards and on-demand prints. The prints may be flat, framed or mounted gallery style on streched canvas.
