I know nothing about Infared....so take my comments with that understanding. I would be interested to see the original. I love that old fence and the mountains in the background, I would be tempted to crop it back to eliminate some of the sky since other than the clouds there is not a lot of interest there. Wish I knew more to give a fair evaluation. Everything for me is in my color world....sorry.

By the way for the others in the Group, Ian has been in and out of serious lockdown this past year. I just read an article and apparently they were restricted to within 3 miles of their home and were only allowed out to exercise 2 hrs/day. Pretty restrictive for a photographer and Ian is welcome to add or subtract from the article I read!   Posted: 09/09/2021 13:04:25

Thanks for your comments. Here's the colour original for you Sherry. I've had a love affair with infra red since I saw a presentation at a camera club about 15 years ago. The presenter said it is important to look at the "ingredients" of an infra red landscape at the time of capture. A blue sky comes out black, white clouds loose definition and texture, pale green foliage comes out white (not the usual tones of grey) and some appropriate object should provide a possible point of interest. Hence when I saw this landscape, I was also looking through infra red eyes. It might not be for everyone, but it's different. Earlier this year, before our lock down I was able to get a dslr body converted for infra red, rather than trying my best in photoshop as I did with this photo. So I hope to get out and try some more in the near future.   Posted: 09/14/2021 06:51:29

To me it seems that the viewer would not know that this photo was infrared without being told and so the exposure looks strange to me--light where it should normally be darker and vice versa. The subject is unclear to me. I would like to see this in landscape orientation and in before the conversion to infrared.   Posted: 09/10/2021 17:24:37
