Since my UV-attempt at minimalism (https://www.ultravio...432-minimalism/ ) was received benevolently, and I did mention there that I had taken some minimalistic shots in IR some time ago, here are a few of them.

The camera was Canon EOS 6D, converted to 700nm, but I don't remember the lens, probably a fast prime with a couple of extension tubes which didn't transmit the lens-data to the camera. All I can say is that they were taken at ISO 100, and between 1/640 and 1/2500 s. I took them at one of my favourite hunting-grounds, the local Botanical Gardens, and I have no idea which plants they are (I took them in June, but since it's mostly leaves and no blossoms, that won't help any).

Processing is also pretty basic, cropping, desaturating, reducing clarity and black (not all of them in all photos), and adding some colour cast to lights and/or shadows.

So nice. The comparison with your UV series is truly "Heaven and Hell". UV is a nightmare, IR is a paradise-like dream. These images seem like clouds in the sky, was this intentional?

Thanks. Clouds were not on my mind then, I was thinking of dreamy, but looking at them now, I can see the clouds.

Knowing that they are of plants, I can now visualise them as such, but yes very dreamy. Thanks for showing & getting the results you were wanting.

I see flowers.
Clouds like that would not be a dreamy airplane ride. The turbulence would be crazy. Unless you were knocked around so much your were knocked out, then you might have a dream. Definitely better than being awake through that.
