This infrared photograph was taken in the Garden of Emptiness, Kyoto, Japan. This garden is very interesting; it includes formal, raked gravel spaces like this one and also garden spaces separated by gravel areas. It is very peaceful.
In processing the image I cut the noise in the portions that are not gravel and foilage, and I eliminated several portions of people from the gallery area.
What is represented by a "photograph" here is an aggultenation of two BAD tricks combined into one bad picture. Someone should have some standards. i have never before been so honest, but this POS forces me to do so. Whoever selected it needs help.

I think this is a wonderful concept of an aristic concept. Some folks don' like HDR or Picasso. We enjoy a diversified world with a lot of boundries for defining art. Are photographers artists that can't paint?

I like pictures depicting emptiness and openness, but I am not sure I get this one.

Pleasing to look at. I think the fisheye lense adds an interesting "frame" to the image.

@cranepix ~ if you are going to use silly words like "aggultenation", my dear Mrs. Malaprop, you should be smart enough to spell them correctly. If you choose to offer formal criticism that is of some value to the person who took the image, you may want to do more than just deposit the contents of your brain onto your keyboard.
The weakness of the image is exceeded only by the uselessness of your comments.
