    Ah ha! The unveiling! Love this one Elle. Was this an IR one? You have me intrigued about this. I just checked out what Lightroom does when you apply the B+W Infrared filter and it appears to be a sort of “virtual” IR – it adjusts the colour slides to specific positions. Fascinating stuff.

  • Yes, unveiling, spurred on by Mick’s comment in my image journal :-)
    No IR on this one, it did ‘horrible’ things to this so it’s ‘just’ a straight RAW conversion, with a little tweak in Nik … glad to have been able to pique your interest in “virtual” IR, in the absence of a dedicated IR camera or film, Rhoufi :-))

    Seems to beckon doesn’t it? :-)

  • Rather :-) … glad it didn’t beckon too loudly though, before getting the shot ;-)

    Fantasic shot! Must be running late, alone again, lost in thought, etc. evokes many interpretations
