I only tried IR film a few times in my Xpan before it went off the market.

Very good use of infrared, making the foliage gleam. The bigger negative of the XPan de-emphasises the grain, and I think makes for a gentler image. The panoramic format is an interesting choice here, as it gives a horizontal slice across a field of vertical lines.
If I was printing it I'd be tempted to just burn down the bright patch bottom left slightly. Otherwise I'd be delighted to have made this.
In fact, I wonder what a really big print of this would look like?

Thanks, skellum for your comments. Looking at the print now I realize that the bright patch is not as bright as it appears on the screen. When printing Xpan negs I usually used a portion of a 12 x 16 print which allowed a generous cut off for a test strip. The photo itself is 5 x 13.5 inches which allows for a wide border. I scanned the photo in 2 parts and joined them with photomerge in PS.

Good Morning Vincent.
Agreed, scans sometimes don't do the print justice- they can miss a lot of the subtleties in the fine highlights.
I shoot some Panoramic images, but using a Russian Horizon. Good fun, but limiting compared to the X-Pan. Printing can be a challenge, as the image is so different in shape to all the standard paper sizes. Like you, I tend to cut the long edge to make test strips.
Not strictly to do with this image, but I followed the link to your snap fish collection- your infrared stuff is lovely!
edge of the boglands and three sisters are gorgeous.

hi skellum, thanks for your comments on my work. I've always enjoyed working with IR especially Kodak HIE. My IR work always did well for me in club competitions so I was always inclined to use it a lot on my photo outings. Like yourself, I regret the passing of the Kodak IR and although I've used the Rollei IR 400 I find that the negatives scan a lot better than they print. I imagine it's just a learning process that I'll have to go through. I've been watching your progress with it and I'm impressed.
