The toning resulting from your IR work well suits the subject matter of the cemetery. The contrast between the manmade elements and the grass, foliage and sky serves to make the manmade elements stand out strongly in the image and re-inforce the nature of the location.

Vic, the stonework is all rather blue and tonally heavy - was this intended?

Hi John. Yes IR has compressed tonality which is the attraction for those who like BW IR. This one before development had a violet tone (from the extra 850nm lens filter). I didn't like the violet but I did like the off black tone so I added a weak blue filter in Nik silver FX.
You must have eyes that are particularly well colour corrected. It shows only as a slight extra richness of tone on my screen but you are correct.
All IR is creative since most of the work is post processing. I usually have 2 or 3 different versions of my IR images.
