Great composition John, and that technique worked perfectly to simulate IR! I'll have to try it!

Really love this high contrast shot, it's one that stands out in the crowd! Dark line along the left of the dead tree is a bit distracting.

Nicely done IR photo. I really feel this one.

Great job. So far my only 10.

Is this an IR photograph? I like how the tree seems to grab the sun. 7.

Don't get the title. Nice. Have you burned the sky? 8.

This has all the makings for a really great shot, but the processing is a distraction for me. There are remnants visible on the edges of many objects and the sky (while unique and pretty cool) has a very odd shape to the darkness that is obviously intentional, but I'm not convinced works entirely. I really like the focus and overall composition though, and it's very high contrast.

Love how the light fits right between the branches!

looks almost like an IR exposure... I like the perspective distortion in this photograph.

This is an excellent photo. An adjustment to mid tones would gotten a ten from me.

The IR look certainly produces a strong High Contrast look IMHO. Very nice. I think the composition would have been stronger if the sun/moon had fallen on the intersecting lines of the top right thirds.

This is amazing, the way you managed to capture the moon in between the branches is very effective, top ten IMHO. 10

Would this have looked more dramatic without the left-hand third of the shot? The light and the branches are superb...well done

I love the composition of the shot, not sure if a tighter shot/crop would have been better. A little less post editing for me, but still a Nice Job.

This is the 4th snowy picture I've seen so far...where in the world is there snow in September? I like the craggy tree.
