Aperture: f 13
ISO: 125

Used the Hoya IR R72 filter. I'm fascinated with IR photos. I would have preferred to do this in advanced editing but oh well.

Shot in RAW. Increased the contrast in Silkypix.
Convert to jpg. Used Noiseware.
Then lots of playing around with the following:
Channel Mixer
Levels
Brightness/Contrast
HSL
Color Balance... all until I got a combination i was happy with.

Resize/Sharpen/more Noiseware/submit!

Taken at Schedel Arboretum and Gardens in Elmore, Ohio.

Congratulations Mich! You are really advancing! I can't believe the leaps and bounds that you've made over the time. Absolutely STUNNING image! Love it!

Duhhhhh......what's an IR?

Looks like a place that I'd like to be. The mirror like effect on the water is just fabulous. Congrats on your top 10 finish. Shoulda scored much higher!

Holy cow....How did I miss this shot before? Amazing IR image but way way more than just a 'clever effect' Full of rich tones and at once both pictureque and haunting

Simply incredible and adding to favourites

GREAT job Michelle

WHOA! I love the effect of IR, and the darkness that you've kept this at is stunning. Love the glass effect on the water, but it's so dreamy. I think this is one of my fav's of yours. Beautiful

It is a travesty in my honest opinion that you didn't place higher than this with that image. Sorry got a 9 from me.

Congratulations, not a bad place in top 10. It looks like a Winter scene.
Oh, I just read below, everyone has already repeated all that.

The composition is good, as is water reflection, and range of tones. I don't like the small wisps of clouds. Either have a lot or none.

This is just beautiful - a real fairy-tale wonderland.

Have you thought about using this for Christmas cards this year? It may have been taken in the height of summer, but it does have that Christmas feel!

great shot, infared?

Overly dramatic shadows and dark sky for my taste. I do like what IR does for the greens though.

I predict top 5.
