    Most IR shots don't do anything for me, but I really
    like this one. The only thing I would say is maybe
    a little rotation ccw.

  6. wow this one's a beauty Craig! Is this the way the color looked straight out of the camera, or did you fiddle with it at all?

    I am never that taken with B&W IR, but I love these color IR photos.

    Hi Janet. it comes out of the camera very red from the filter. I desaturate the red color to taste. What you see is whats left after reducing red. Also some minor levels or contrast adjustments.
    thankyou for commenting. :)

    IR has no colour as such, so we are free to assign whichever colour suitable for the image.This isn't "fiddling" because that signifies something has a true (colour) rendition, and so is not the case for IR.

    Many digital cameras respond to near-IR mainly in the red channel and getting acceptable colour balance from this is not always possible. Converting the image to b/w or monochrome with a colour cast is often better.

    When a really dense IR filter is deployed over the lens, you will ordinary get a nearly monochrome image anyway.
     
  9. Well composed and taken. Colors are impressive.
