Default Another Infrared

The biweekly challenge a couple of weeks ago got me interested in giving IR another try. I had to wait until my only camera that's sensitive to IR came back to me (I had loaned it to someone).

It's an odd thing, I found it hard to figure out what would look good and what wouldn't. Almost all of what I tried was in the "wouldn't" category. But I was pretty happy with how this one came out - I'd be interested in what others think of it.

it does have a certian appeal to it imo ..... as though you have wondered to through the woods and found a special place the only problem i have is the blown area bottom centre barring that it does work

Thanks, glad to know that others find it pleasing too.

The blown out parts aren't exactly blown out, but they look it when converted to b&w. I couldn't figure out how to keep the bit of detail that's there without getting everything else out of whack, even using layers - got frustrated and gave it up. The picture is only for my pleasure and it doesn't bother me that much.

You'd never know that this picture was taken in West Los Angeles, would you?
