Arch of Vines 2 IR converted

G'day WENDY!

Magical, mystical and surreal and the first words which sprang to mind as I viewed this excellent IR. The white of the leaves against the blue of the sky with its foil of clouds is a real winner for me. Your point of view and f/stop selection give the image depth and the dark vine trunks and ground tones break the foreground and mid-ground beautifully.

This is one of my favorite IR photos so far! Conversion using channel mixer created this incredible blue sky. The rest of the colors were de-saturated to make the vines more white. Sharpened and contrast increased.
