Japanese Gardens

I got a chance to spend some time in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hobart a couple months ago. The gardens are spread out and each area seems to have its own theme, these images are from he Japanese Garden. I didn’t have my tripod with me which is a shame because I would have benefited using one on many shots in the garden. This area is quite beautiful and I hope to go back one day, tripod in hand.

These two shots are fake infrared images. This first image reminded me of the “War of the Worlds” with everything turned red. With the other image I was going for a darker feel. Almost monochromatic but with a hint of colour.

    okay. the 1st shot is just out of this world. I can’t imagine there is such beauty so near you. Out of the other shots…the last one, the darker version is my pick. It has a very unique vibe. Great stuff Colin.

    I’m sure I commented on this before, but maybe I’m just going mad! I love the images, like Sue says – Wow! The reflections in the images are so clear. Great work.
