So surprised at how well this did. I'm always hesitant with IR stuff here, and when it wound up looking like a selective color I was even more hesitant because even I don't normally like or do those. It's always the stuff I feel unsure of that seems to do well.

I'd photographed this location before in IR and thought it would work for this challenge. The original image that didn't produce quite the colors I wanted (not sunny enough) so I converted to B&W. At this point I thought it might be interesting to add color but I didn't want to violate the Advanced rules. Only then did I notice it was Expert editing, so I went full blown sunrise instead with the title in mind.

So glad so many liked it.

I suspected this was an image by Jake. I am however a bit surprised by your use of selective saturation, I mean knowing you a little. I think it works very well for the theme of your story. Congratulations Jake!

I knew there was something special with this photo, but wasn't able to put my finger on it. IR! Great idea. It really works wonderfully here. Congrats on the ribbon!

This is a great shot gorgeously processed except for the partial desat. Too bad because I think it could work either way (color or bw). voted earlier
