    Fantastic light and composition - very well done! I'd be inclined to correct some - maybe not all - of the parallax. (I assume the building wasn't really leaning that much.)

    Really effective. The 121s exposure gave you a beautiful sky. Perhaps a bit of light painting on the building would have been interesting.

    Impressive technique. Haunting more than serene. It is very dark.

    i want to like this more.
a bit dark and maybe could use straightening in my opinion.
did you try any exposures without the filter? my old kodak can do infrared with this filter fairly well. my newer cameras would have to be modified to get results i'd be happy with.

    This is a beautiful image - with lots of character and power. I want to like this entry even more, however, but am held back. I'm sure there are many who will appreciate and approve of how dark an image it is - but to me, it is overall just too dark. I want at least the building to be a bit lighter. The snowy walkway is beautifully and subtly lit which leads the eye directly to the building - but it appears to me that the artist stopped post processing before completing the picture! I don't mean to imply this is necessarily a "fault" with the image. I assume the photographer made a conscious decision to make it this dark, perhaps even to encourage viewers to form an opinion one way or another.

    Great photo - a little bit eerie.
