    It seems that the flowers will continue! As we were cleaning up from having people over for Mother's Day the wife and I got to talking to one of the neighbors for a bit, and in doing so he sent us back with some greens and a couple very pretty peonies from their garden. I felt that I *had* to take a few IR portraits!:D

    C&C is welcome as always.

    They make interesting IR images. Are you using focus stacks for the DoF in these?

    Thanks Alan! No stacking - just single exposures at around f9-f11.

    Very nice Jeff! These are sure very cool. My favorite is #2 as I like having the vase in the shot to and sets it apart a bit.

    Thank you, Jim! I dig #2 too.:) I think the perspective works nicely.

    Appreciate the comments/feedback!

    My Peonies lasted a week, now they're gone...

    It's an annual treat.



    Great shots!

    I like the first one most, very delicate looking, fragile is the word I was thinking of. The B&W makes it look like its about to float away.
