I always like IR images, but never get round to try any.. this is a pseudo IR from PS. Does it look like one? :-D
Moseley old hall was built in 1600 as an Elizabethan style half-timbered house, it was transformed into a Regency style during 1870's, because it was out of fashion, underneath the bricks it was still an half timbered house, it is a lot older than it looks.
I'll try to upload the back of the house and chimneys on workshop for you to have a look. You may notice that there is a gap between the chimneys and the roof, because it was a Thatched House before. Thanks for looking.

I like the symmetrical composition with the cobbled path beckoning the viewer toward the front door. The image is well exposed and has a fine range of tones. Excellent rendering of the textural detail.

This is a beautiful, old house, with a typical English country garden.
I really like your viewpoint, which creates a sort of symmetry and is reminiscent of every child's interpretation of house - path, leading to a central door, windows each side, pointed roof with chimneys. I still have a pic drawn by my daughter when she was at primary school!
The details are very sharply gathered.
Your IR or B&W effect works extremely well, giving it a sense of age.
Have a lovely Sunday,

love this! A wonderful transition into pseudo-infrared. It enhances the presence and beauty of this old mansion perfectly. Excellent!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

This is a fine old house, and your reflect centre head on view gives a tempting view of its eclectic style. The black and white choice is very well chosen making this look like a perfect scene for a mystery movie. I know this house now courtesy of people sharing if here on trekearth, this is probably the nicest I have seen.
Thanks as always

I don't know enough about infrared to tell you if it does look real but it definitely looks like the real deal. The old mansion, covered in ivy, comes across very nicely like that against the almost white greenery.
have a great sunday

This is an exceptionally well made photo and a very good composition. The sharpness and greyscale are impressive and the total lack of symmetry makes the building very interesting. The workshop photos are also very good, so altogether you give us a very fine set of photos today. In fact, I almost prefer the view from the back of the building, mainly because of the two persons standing outside it. They look so small and yet I find they contribute so much.

Hi Jasmine, very good black and white photograph of this beautiful and interesting house, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and quality. Very good job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

This is a perfect follow up from your posting of yesterday - the house with the lovely (and interesting) staircase now seen from outside!
I must admit that I'm not a great fan of infrared pictures because they always look too harsh, but this "pseudo IR" effect which you have done in Photoshop (I don't know how you've done it!) is much more appealing and I really like it.
The light, tones and contrasts are lovely and we can see all the wonderful details and textures in the lovely brickwork of the house and in the gardens and pathway. Perfect exposure and exquisite sharpness and clarity. And two fine workshop pictures too!
