The Sitting Monk by sculptor William Lazard, Malmesbury, Wiltshire.

Taken with my Canon EOS 40D camera that has been converted to infrared use by installing a 720nm internal filter in place of the original IR blocking filter. It was fitted with a Canon EF-S 10 to 18mm lens set at 11mm. Because of the poor lighting and deep shadows I took three images at one-stop intervals using the cameras auto bracketing facility, hand-held at 1/30, 1/60 and a 1/125 of a second at f6.7 with the ISO set at 400. These were combined as an HDR image using Photomatix EssentialsThe resulting file was then tidied and the colours saturated and enhanced in Lightroom.
