    About an hour from Rome lies the town of Gaeta, this is the view next to the cathedral.

    A true IR shot or an IR conversion? Whatever, it's stunning!

    thanks glad you like it....what is it about the clouds that makes you unsure?

    thank you very much :D.

    thank you.

    thanks a lot and yes a 'true' IR shot taken with a modded canon 300D....the IR in this shot looks less intense than others from the day, mostly due to cloud cover later in the day.

    Nice. I don't know what's wrong with the clouds, I like them personally.. Overall it's a cool shot. I want to see more contrast myself. For some reason, it doesn't really look very "IR" to me though. I probably wouldn't even have realized it if I hadn't read the replies.

    thanks glad you like it...the reduced IR effect is because of the light and perhaps like most people you are used to seeing lots of very white foliage....the grass and small trees in the foreground are white, just not that luminescent in this light.

    thanks very much.

    thanks a lot.

    "WOW!" was my first thought when I saw this photo. It has so many beautiful things going on it in at one time. This is one of the very few shot on here I have called "perfect". I'm not sure why people are dissing the clouds. I think they are beautiful. good job, sir.

    Most often a shot like this would come off as too busy for me, but this one works in my humble opinion. Perhaps it's the simple flowing lines of the staircase helping to lead me in. I personally like the wide tonal range of the image - you avoided excess contrast. The only thing that bothers me is the left leaning horizon.

    Nice capture.

    Marc
