    Thanks ZD :) This was taken on my Nikon D50 (DSLR) with the kit lens.
    To do this i did the following....
    -Set up camera and composition - i start at 8secs @F/5.6 and work from that

    Some people like to manually set the WB first by shooting a brightly lit patch of grass, but i adjust in Lightroom

    -Either manual focus or Auto focus before you put on the IR filter (but make sure you switch to manual after putting your filter on as they a virtually black)
    - Put your filter on - I use a Hoya R72
    - Shoot - your image will com out red

    For PP i take the image into lightroom:

    -Set the custom WB by clicking on a grassy/leafy patch of the pic
    - Take over to photoshop and adjust the tone - i use auto tone
    - Select Layer>new adjustment layer>channel mixer
    - in the red channel make these adjustments: Red:0 Green:0 Blue:+100
    -in the blue channel make these adjustments: Red:+100 Green:0 Blue:0

    if there is any red left in the pic got to your hue and saturation options and desaturate the red and magenta.

    HTH
