A truly beautiful photograph Maris!

I hope you have plenty of IR film stocked up because your work with it is always outstanding.

Some great bloated pregnant sweeps of mass there Maris. Thanks for posting.

Thanks mark.darragh and Walter Glover. Infrared works really nicely with some subjects and the tonalities can look beautiful and a bit strange. Years ago I fell into the usual beginner's trap of exaggerating the infrared "pop" and the pictures had to scream. The IR gimmick often went well at camera clubs. Now I try (so help me) to be a bit more subtle.

I'm down to my last 100 sheets of Efke IR820. Awkwardly it's 11x14 size and I'll have to cut each sheet down to 8x10 with a couple of 4x5 pieces and a bit of waste left over; a chore I'm not looking forward to. Maybe I should sell it cheap and stick to proper film.
