I don't think it's a matter of either you like it or you don't. Although there are specific looks to a style, it doesn't have to compromise or restrict your composition. Simply underexposing by 1 or 2 stops, the skin would have been saved.
On the side note, I don't like the distortion on her face.
I'm not familiar with IR no. But I know what I like, and this doesn't do it for me. But you like it, that's all that matters I guess.I guess you guys have no idea what IR portraits look like eh....it makes the skin slightly translucent, giving a ghostly appearance. You either like it or you don't .
