    I always love your shots. This is just insanely cool, and beautiful.

    Edit: I've been reading a certain post on the art of critique and though I disagreed with a lot of the comments made, and felt in no way interested in entering the conversation it did make me pause and think about what I wish to gain from this forum. Although I am very new to photography and I only post a pat on the back if I really enjoy the shot I thought I'd take a chance to go back work a bit harder on my critique as I wish to receive a bit more than just a simple "I like it," and thought I should provide the same courtesy to others that I wish from others.

    So here goes. Most b&w photographs I find quite heavy. Although this works well in many situations I was surprised to find your photograph being both b&w, pleasing to at least my eyes, yet at the same time making me wish I was within the image. Unlike many b&w photographs I am compelled to not just be a viewer but a participant.

    Hope this was a bit more constructive.

    well i must post but it's not so much a technical critique but just how i see it (lol, what's with all these disclaimers)

    Looks like heaven on earth? and where is it! really nice, looks so relaxed and airy. Reminds me a bit of that old program Randal & Hopkirk (deceased).

    With so much white in this photo it makes it seem like a very happy place. I love the jovial feel of this picture.

    thanks very much, it was a peaceful happy place.

    thanks glad you like it and find it inspiring. As for what is the best way to get into IR, that is a difficult question. The best way (in my opinion)is not the cheapest. I think many who like IR try the filter method on a stock camera and are disappointed, as the exposure times are long and moving objects don't record well. However that being said, I've seen some brilliant images of moving skies over buildings that looked awesome. Overall though I prefer the conversion of a camera. It costs around $350 US to have it done. There is a lot of helpful information on the net about shooting with a converted camera.....if you have any more questions PM me and I'd be happy to help where I can.

    I'm in love with the contrast of the dark sky and the white trees. Beautiful.

    thanks very much, the immediate effect of rendering blue skies, bodies of water to black and green foliage to white was what first intrigued me about IR. This immediate effect is also what it's critics say, makes photos appear better than they are.

    I am fairly new to photography and other than a picture I saw somewhere with Scott Kelby involved (can't really remember lol) this is the 2nd one I ever see and I must say it blows my mind. Very very very nice to look at and interesting at the same time. Congrats!! :thumbup:
