I didn't vote on this challenge but I would have given this a good score despite being a little tired of the "plain" IR shots. The effect is great and you have managed to make it even better by bringing colour back into it. Shots like this make me realise that IR is not just a gimmic.

I'm not a big fan of IR shots. But this one is very interesting to look at.

Most unusual look & feel in Infra-Red, and like the overall effect.
A bit too much noise in the sky for my tastes, but that's just me.

This is my second WOW. Great tones, hues and composition. Did I say I like it?

so, this is the day you would be kicking yourself, what with the single tree challenge having just kicked off? tree position is also perfect, and good for the rule of thirds challenge... it's another lovely ir shot, though the tree is surprisingly yellow which kind of reduces the "wow, infrared rocks!" that normally hits me. it's almost like a giant cat peed on it. the big shadow is also a distrcation; i'm sitting wandering what cast such a large shadow (possibly the giant cat again...). the sky is really lovely, and the environment is beautiful. overall, very likeable, but i can't quite feel comfy about the yellows.. 7.

not teribly striking to me for an Ir. Pleasing composition though. Nice skky as well.
