    Was wondering what you guys thought of this compostion.

    This is an infrared photo, taken with my 50mm f/1.8 and my Hoya R72 infrared filter. Squire's Castle is a very neat place. I hope I captured it's beauty. I wasn't sure if I should get up close, or show the sprawling lawn in front.

    Also I'm wondering if I shouldn't try and clone out the swingset.

    Ok your pictures just bug me. They are simply brilliant. How do you do that? Is that just an infrared picture and you colorised it in photoshop?

    The swingset doesn't botherme. It's not very distracting as it's hidden nicely in the trees. However if you are trying to get a bit of a more medievil feel for it, then it just doesn't belong.

    Fantastic shot all round.

    Thanks everyone! :)

    Garbz, it's just a normal infrared photo yes. The colors are all shades of red until I select a whitepoint in my raw software, (A leaf or grass), and then in PS I invert the colors. I might do a version with the swingset cloned out just to see how it looks.

    Thanks Hobbes and Uselessdreamer :)

    You make a good point eromallagadnama. I never thought of the swingset like that :) It doesn't bother me now, now that you said that.

    The sky is probably the most perfect shade of blue I've seen in a photograph. It fits perfectly with the white snow and frost on the trees.

    What's the light source? It seems like it should be from a full moon.

    I'm new... I haven't seen any of your other posts... I should go looking.
