Beautiful, Bill!! I'm so glad you posted an infrared! Thanks for your comments and encouragement on my efforts. How are you dealing with the noise in your IR photos? Sometimes NeatImage just washes out the details along with the noise in mine. So, I'm using a combination of NeatImage and Craig's Actions Shadow Soft B&W. #1492229

What a beautiful image and the use of IR really puts it over the top. I like the way the tree in the corner grabs the eye and then diagonally you will find the house. A real beauty, Bill.
