Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on a new personal best. Its always nice to see a new image sitting there atop the previous high scorers. Nicely seen and nicely presented.

My thoughts on the image: I am not normally fan of infrared images. However, I like the capture here in the fact that there are details that scream infrared while the overall image retains a nicely toned black and white feel.

My ideas for improvement: Honestly, as far as a nicely done infrared image, there is hardly anything that I could suggest for improvement. I like the perspective. I like the tones you captured. I like the overall exposure. The composition is surely a great strength of the image as well. It does a wonderful job of drawing me deep into the image.

Where I would have/did score this entry: I did not vote in this particular challenge, but this would have been somewhere in the 7 or 8 range for me, depending on the strength of the overall challenge. I do like it, and I think that the voters scored this one appropriately. Well seen, well captured, and well presented. Nice work

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

I get a feeling as if I am rushing headlong into this very nice b&w landscape composition. 10

This is a cool image. I love the converging lines and the vanishing point. Great sky

Cool, I like the way you composed this shot with the vanishing point right in the center.

no-nonsense composition linked with mono (+ infra red?) conversion add up to a strong image - good luck

You should make this a print and sell the hell out of it. Beautiful, and my pick for the blue. 10 all the way good luck.

and the forward arrow of time. I don't know what is that brings me back to this image, but I am loving it. I think it's forcing me to think differently.

Nice IR shot, like the centered comp. Seems like it could use a bit of B/C to make the center trees pop a bit more, still, very nice work.

Great use of a vanishing point. I like how the scene is pretty sparse other than the trees right along the road. It's also interesting how the vanishing point is also the meeting point of lines of trees on either side that presumably mark another road. Nice shot.
