A snowy scene, photographed using infrared film of Mount Croghan, Co. Wexford, Ireland. The white grass in the foreground is due to the IR film, but most of the background whiter patches are snow. Almost no digital manipulation- just spotting and curves. I've also printed this in the darkroom with similar results.

Well it looks very grainy and, if you hadn't mentioned it was IR I may not have guessed it!

Not sure why you wanted to take an IR pic of this. I am sure it would have worked better in normal colour.

A very sombre scene - the grass does, indeed look like snow. Works well for me as a (slightly depressing) winter scene.

At last someone who can see the point of the photo! It is meant to be somber, dark, moody etc. In my opinion, that is far more interesting than a dull straight forward shot. Mood is good!

And carbosse- have you ever tried black and white photography? This photo would have been a bland and uninteresting shot of the irish countryside in colour (normal or otherwise).
