Bridge over the Derwentwater on the walk around the lake. If I remember right this is my second attempt at getting this shot right, any comments much appreciated.

Not quite sure why there is no Exif Data available, have just notice.

Hi Willie.
The effect I was after was IR without all the problems with working with IR so it is a straight shot but shooting into the morning sunlight, the problems I find with IR is sometimes getting something usable out of the shadow areas.

I like this Mike, intriguing and effective. The person walking towards the bridge is well positioned. Its suggestive of a dream sequence to me.

The darker area of trees, with the hint of brighter branches look a little threatening.

Definitely works.

Absolutely, this works, and I am less interested in whether it's "true" IR or something else than in whether it looks right. This looks right!

I love Charlie Waite's landscapes - and he has done some in monochrome. One of his principles, which is every bit as sound as the rule of thirds, is that objects at the edge of the frame should be complete. I think this might be an even more perfect jewel of a picture if the main tree on the right, and the tree above the walker were fully in shot.

There's a risk that you'd lose some of the mystery atmosphere that way, but you'd get rid of a couple of distractions, as the viewer's eyes look for the rest of the trees, outside the frame.

What do others think?

Hi Dudler.

Thanks for your comments and mod, Yes you have a point even with your quick mod you can see the difference. It kinds of finish to photo,
more so on the right than the left maybe because it stands out more.

Wonder if I still have the original??
Thanks again.

Mike.
