I thought I'd try an IR shot in winter. The day this was taken, the temperature was -10 C (10 F). A cold winter day is actually filled with IR waves.

WOW

Wonderful IR shot.

I like IR images very much.

Never tried it, but would like to sometime.

Keep them coming.

Cheers

C'est très réussi Christian.

Would you like to expand on the technique you used to capture this image please.

nice job!

I like it! never tried in winter though?? Well next year, still waiting for leaves so I can get out with the ir filter. Be interesting to see you swapping channels to see what you can get out of it for coloring than just totally desaturating?? fun to play.
Here is one from last year..

Wow ! This one has impact ! Do you have the EXIF ? Seems like a really long exposure -the silky effect is stupendous. I have the impression a polar was also used, or is it just playing with the channels ?

Good morning, will have to check, sure I have the exif with my RAW file somewhere. This is probably 5s exposure, no polar, just playing with channels.......will be playing with my 25a filter on top of my 72 hoya this year ;-)

hello, This is my first IR shot, I took it at the weekend. It is the Chapel at Lulworth castle, UK. My PS skills are very limited but here it is anyway. I'd love any advice or technical tips on how to improve it

Keith, I like your shot but the trees in the background look out of proportion to the forground. Is it the motion of the water that's screwing with my perception or did you work some magic with two images?

I swear Christian, when I look at your photo long enough, I can smell snow! Snow is a really good IR reflector, which kind of surprises me. I loved seeing your picture. Thanks!

HI Greg, no its definitely the flow of the water, and very fast flowing it was......thought it was a cool shot........here's another one, i just printed it 16x20 but did it in black and white instead and turned out great
