My friend is sitting in the wheel chair, he looked so scary sitting there because you really could not see his face.

I converted this to Infra Red, thought it looked even more evil. I will also post the color shot.

For my 2 cents worth, I REALLY like the IR version. There is real mystery and forboding. I alsofeel a sense of doom and dispair.

Well done!

The IR version is definitely creepy. It's more effective than the color version.

But I think that effect is felt even more because one sees both shots and compares them.

Hi,

must say that I'm really wandering what to choose....since the both photos are very well done but thay are good in two different issues....

For example: the #1 is really good for kind of artistic work....movie cover-advertiz...

#2 colored version I really really like the background colors..., I would use this one for putting on the wall as a framed picture....



Good one....

Zak

ok..

so its not really an IR conversion.. its more of a high contrast black and white conversion using a red filter to lighten the light streaming in as well as the far wall which has some red pigments in it.. an IR conversion will illuminate the green channels to mimick the IR given off by green vegetation and such..

that said i like the black and white version.. its moody and has a very good ethereal feel to it..

the color works for me as well because it is darker and more somber..
