I’ve been too busy to really play with the near IR camera but now I have a week off…I found the website for this garden, Alowyn Gardens, in Yarra Glen, and immediately thought of IR for the topiary (I have a BIG weakness for formal gardens!)…so here is the first of a few πŸ™‚ Β Also my entry for Monochrome Madness, week 29 hosted by Leanne Cole.Β

  1. That really is a ‘fantasy’ image – and I mean that in a complimentary way, Lisa. IR has really transformed this. One suggestion: I think it could be even more striking if you could darken the shadow areas.I think that additional contrast would really make it something very special.

  2. There is something very compelling about formal gardens like this – having said that, I’d rather visit them than live with them!
    Lenscaper has a point about the shadows (and sky?). I also think that the strong shadow down the path provides an imbalance to an otherwise very balanced image – maybe a different time of day?
    I know it’s an awful cheek of me to critique as I’m not an IR fan ….. but shock, horror – I actually quite like this IR version! Maybe you’ll be able to convert me after all?! πŸ˜€

    1. Lol -I always appreciate your feedback Noeline πŸ™‚ Yes I probably would process this slightly differently now I’ve got more used to the IR. I also agree about the path shadow but this place gets incredibly busy and they don’t open til mid-morning, but in summer the sun position might be better.
