    When choosing a green area to use for my custom WB setting, should I use a nice patch of grass or should I try to find a darker green area like some boxwoods or other evergreen bushes? Does it matter?
    I used a patch of grass today with my newly acquired B+W IR filter and this sample image doesn't seem to have the contrast that I used to get with my Hoya R72.

    Any tips?
