Lots of lovely IR light! Maybe a touch darker would give more impact to the darker areas as well, but it is a tricky balance.

Superb images, particular #2 and #3, agree with John that they'd have a tad more impact if they were a few shades darker.

Superb set, I really like these, always difficult to get the balance spot on with IR but I would be well pleased with all of these.

Great set MrB. As a Berko born man, I always take a walk along the cut when I go back home.

Very different and all the better for it. Number 4 is my favourite.

Great set, plenty of sunshine, greenery and water, just perfect for IR.
No 4 would be my pick,

I always love the effect of trees and the leaves created by this IR technique, it has the feel of a heavy snowfall. I admit that IR images are not a natural love for me (mono too), but here there is a lot to see and enjoy, helped not the least by good viewpoints and compositions. Its interesting to see the way the various texture types are rendered.

Very nice indeed. These are all very strong images IMO - well composed and the IR adds impact, although I also agree that a tad more dark tones
