The last infrared photo from the botanic garden in Hamburg. Taken with Heliopan RG 715. Some work with texture in the processing.

This is absolutely amazing, it's a good thing you mentioned it was an infrared, I totally missed the white trees in the background. It has a magical air to it, as if the path leads you to some magical wonderland; also, the textures are phenomenal, in both the ground and in the trees.

hi albert! the results of this infrared processing are really breathtaking! do you use a special filter or it´s only the result of professional processing on the computer?
perfekt depth in this shot and an extraordinary mood! great!

@klausZ: Hi Klaus. I use an infra red filter, then a bit playing with the colors in the processing, the colors are anyway pretty weird when the photo is unprocessed. Thanks for your comments!

Great colour and light. I've not seen an IR shot like this before.

das sieht ganz gut aus.
Infrarot in Farbe habe ich noch nicht gemacht, kenne ich auch nur aus der SW-Fotografie.
