    very nice. looks very good with the IR effect too. I dont like the vignetting though.
    Clouds give the picture a lively effect , really good job.

    Stunning, Roger.

    Generally an image like this would feel "too busy" but you've pulled it off nicely with the processing and IR. This image is one that I find myself exploring for extended periods. Based on a previous comment you made, I assume that you plan to print it on Metallic?

    thanks glad you like it....the original image was IR, I edited it with Silver Efex Pro, which is where the vignette was added.

    thanks a lot Marc, agree this could be a busy scene but as you say the IR has pierced the scene to create a nice pictorial effect for me.....interestingly though I have a colour shot taken with my 15mm fish and it also looks really good.....indeed you guessed correctly about printing. I picked up a print today and was impressed by the quality, so more will get done now.

    thanks a lot woojiebear :D.

    This deserves to be framed, and put up where everyone can see it. Brilliant shot. :thumbup::thumbup:.oh, I like the vignetting.

    This is an image one can get lost in for a while.
    Well done, Roger.

    I don't really prefer cityscapes, but this is my favourite!

    I don't know how I missed this until now. Like everyone else, I think it's really terrific. You frequently make me wish I were equipped to try IR.

    thanks Fox Paw.....I think IR is worth the investment, whether it be a filter or a converted camera.
