    Sculpture piece called "Horses in the River" by John Longcore located roughly under the Blue Footbridge in downtown Grand Rapids, Mi.

    Shot with a 720nm infrared filter at a 10 second exposure, ISO 800 with the Olympus Pen E-P3 on a monopod and the 17/2.8 lens.

    Two different post-processing done, one cropped and a tad 'smoother' and second one left uncropped and a bit more sureal (in my opinion).

    Really cool effect, particularly the second! The trees, however, seem to get lost against the sky.

    Not easy to separate with IR especially considering it's such a narrow range of light the camera is recording, it's either exposure the foreground and blow out the background in the sun, or vice versa.
