I like to see infrared images, but every time I've started reading about how to get them, I get too intimidated. Kudos to you for trying it out!

Thank you Bethany but I really don't think it my cup of tea.

I like the idea!
and I agree with some of the others, it looks more like spot color on monochrome than infrared. 

30 years ago I took analog photos with infrared film. It is a very challenging medium to work with! I remember I had to shoot all 36 exposures within one hour and hurry back to the camera shop to turn in the film for immediate processing/refrigeration so the film wouldn't get "too warm" which would ruin all the exposures. Boy, that was stressful!

Based on that experience -  in terms of composition - I would recommend to have one central element which is not living (like a stone sculpture) surrounded by nature - in IF nature tends to "blur" which creates a nice contrast to the sharp lines of the stone/metal. Just a suggestion.
Keep experimenting, it's very interesting!

Beautiful. At first I thought it was spot color and then I read the IR part. Filter or did you take the plunge and get a body transfered over to IR? I am curious to know more about the how behind it.

Actually Ram's blog post  is what inspired me and followed some of the steps point out in the article.

The Forum tab is located all the way up where it says Photoblog, Browse, My blog, and then Forum.
https://www.photoblog.com/forum/

When you get there, on the right hand side you should see your icon. If you click on that icon there are three little icons one of them looks like an envelope. Click on the envelope and you should be able to see messages.

i scene itself is beautiful, but i'm not fond of the colouring.. maybe because it's not a natural looking colour.. my brain wants to see green..
