Challenge: Graveyard (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D7000

Aperture: 9.0

Shutter: 1/160

Easton Cemetery Chapel, 720nm IR

Lightroom - White balance, clarity adjustment
Photoshop - Perspective adjustment
Silver Efex Pro - B&W used w/ luminosity blend
Topaz Glow - layer used w/ soft light blend
Lightroom - adjust color specific saturation and apply radial filters for local light adjustments, sharpen and export

Gotta thank my Hit Squad teammates for talking me into this one. Was really on the fence about using IR. The score varied so much early on that I was stunned to see this on the front page at all let alone come in second.

Thanks for all the nice comments. Go Hit Squad!!

Thanks, h2, and thanks for the high score. If it makes you feel better, we had you with just the Road Signs. ;) You guys did well.

Congratulations Jake. Amazing finish. I find it hard to believe that four people gave this 1 or 2, but I guess it's each to his/her own.

The infared makes this quite eerie. Love the church - it really stands out here. Good dynamic angle, too.

I've been away for a while and I'm not sure but this looks like something 21_F.gif Judi would do.

Very eye-catching and strangely beautiful. The eerie look of the toned infrared is quite appropriate here.
