The place is Curug Cigamea (curug=waterfall in Sundanese). It's one of strings of waterfallin Ujung Genteng, West Java. You can reach it by car (about 6 or 7 hrs drive from Jakarta, and when the road ends you have to hike through a tropical rainforest for about 1/2 an hour.
This is a digital Infrared photo. I use Ilford SFX gelatin filter for this shot. I swap the red/blue channel in digital editing. The lens is Sigma 12-24 EX

Beautiful image. I tried switching the red/blue channel back again to see what the original colors looked like. Ended up with a purple. Did you colorize the water and sky? Or remove color in the foliage? I'm guessing that the 'digital IR' resultied in a B&W image, is this right?

Superbe photo Sebastian !
Très bon cadrage avec de très belles couleurs qui se dégagent de cette photo.

Stunning creation... your technique write up is helpful as well. Sharp - only thing I can see possibly changing is cropping the left lower corner out.

Wow - this is amazing - creativity factor: 100.
I think making everything but the water and sky white works really well. Lovely.
