    nice idea and colors
    also good that you left some open spot so the pic didn't get too crowded

    Thank you, i did choose those six to keep them green, in order to show both colors more.

    glad you liked it.

    peace,

    There's something about the lighting that nags at me in this photo. It's a bit harsh and I think might have done better at a later time of day. The water seems black, although I can see the stems it just doesn't look natural and the shadows and highlights are harsh on the leaves themselves.

    I like the composition, and the color of the leaves, it's just the lighting that needs to change to benefit those positive aspects.

    thank you for the comments.

    Jess, you are absolutly right about the timing of the shot, but the musuem closed at 3:00 pm that say so i had to shoot and run, and i did all this coloring thing to avoide such a comment :confused: anyway, the green was so desaturated because of the mid-day lighting, and blackining the water was intentional, i actually liked it this way, thanks a lot for your thoughts.

    Cheers,
    Trombone

    Great picture. the only thing that bugs me is the bright spot in the upper portion near the left corner. You know what I'm talkinga bout??? Something looks off there and it is grabbing my attention away.

    I really like the blackened water with your choice of colors. Well done.

    Inserting faux IR color, IMO the red is plastic looking it has more of an Andy Warhol look that real color IR, I have been shooting some color IR film lately and actually have a similar shot
    This is the similar shot that I took.
