Great to see an infrared pic on the front page and a new best score for the old D50.
Well done.

that's cool.

just watch out, you might have the dpc mob on you VERY soon because you didn't leave a positive comment on a ribbonning entry. BEWARE, they're out there.

That was the first thought that came to mind. I wonder of the glyphs are on the other side?

That is a beautiful shot though.

Absolutely beautiful!!

wow very big like 10
04/23/2012 07:56:19 PM
very nice. I'm fond of the white foliage thing. I like the comp too..the frame and the patterned walk create a lot of perspective
04/23/2012 07:08:55 PM
Looks like a Christmas card. Beautifully done.
04/23/2012 06:03:26 PM

I fall in love with this pic! It's really a wonderful shot!
04/23/2012 01:58:38 AM
Wonderful view, well framed, and beautifully processed.
04/22/2012 08:42:00 AM
Very nice HDR shot, and nice use of sepia, definitely a ribbon. Oh, meets the challenge well too!!
04/22/2012 07:45:56 AM
Love the feeling this picture invokes. I would ask where it was taken, but it's probably on the other side of the world for me anyway :-)
04/21/2012 12:42:33 PM
Just the sort of image that finishes at the top. Marvelous IR
04/21/2012 08:50:49 AM
This to me is a "frame" - lovely, well done. Don't know if your photograph complies with "basic editing",, but I will let the experts decide on that. If that "frost"is real its amazing
04/20/2012 05:26:52 PM
this is a great shot
04/19/2012 10:33:56 PM
oooo, nice to see an IR change of pace around here.
04/19/2012 09:02:38 PM
this is amazing !!!! I love , LOVE IR... I want this photo..LOL I'ld give you a 20 if I could .. 10 .
04/19/2012 04:34:54 PM
Cool effect!
04/19/2012 03:20:19 PM
I think this reminds me of the Seattle Japanese Gardens, which I visited a few years ago. I am undecided on the processing. I bet it looks much better full size.
04/19/2012 12:22:06 PM
Best in show award, congrats
04/18/2012 11:42:10 PM

Wow - perfect use of infrared. Magicland!
04/18/2012 08:22:03 AM
Gorgeous image and perfectly composed for the challenge. I assume this is done in IR. And I really hope you haven't violated Basic rules to get here.
04/18/2012 02:12:49 AM
I don't think I'm far from predicting this to be the Blue!! FANTASTIC
