Dopol, come on over to the "bright" side! But, yes, IR is certainly not for everyone, in fact it may not be to most folks' liking. I use it only in specific situations and usually capture a regular color image as well. For example, the first image is the only one of the streams and small waterfalls images that I took that I even remotely liked in IR. Probably next week I will post some stream shots, both in color and in regular black and white, that I prefer to the IR ones.

Hi Roger,

Another big vote for #1 - wonderful composition irrespective of IR or not and the balance of tones works really well as does the sense of movement you've captured in the scene.

However, I am also almost as taken by #2 - those towering clouds add a real sense of impending change to the scene. I also like the very carefully placed tree - just enough tonal contrast to separate it from the trees behind and you've managed to keep the fine branches just inside the clouds so they don't merge into the dark sky created by the IR effect. I wondered about a slight 'trim' off the bottom - the grass doesn't really add that much and there is a slight but noticeable 'bright' patch under the tree which is a bit of an attention seeker - but then decided that this was what you wanted to show us? Thoughts from your side would be welcome!

The rest don't quite grab me in the same way - a little too 'bright' in an IR way that I still struggle with from time to time I have to admit, though the fenceline in #3 has some interest I have to admit.

Looking forward to Part 3 and thanks for sharing these!

Take care and best regards, Neil.

Both #1 and #2 are very appealing to this not-so-much-IR-fan as well.
As Owenn01 wrote on #2: agree fully on that.


Great work!
