    OK, I've been threating to do this, so here goes. Been wanting to do this for a looong time now. Still haven't gotten the R72 filter yet(been side tracked a few times), but did this with PS CS. Let me know what you all think(Digimatt-ksmatt this especially means you two; you both have answered my questions about this so I kinda really want to know what you think of it).

    OoOoOOo...I like that IR conversion. It works out quite nicely on the vegitation. I keep staring at the one drop that turned black...it's just intriguing.

    Wow, you go home on leave and come back an artist over night? Hmm, I guess I better get practicing!

    I find both the ir and the original very enjoyable! Nice job on the conversion!

    Excellent job on converting it, my only question is HOW DID YOU DO IT? If you wanna clue me in that would be great, I think photoshop is gonna be a necessity!

    Looks great. Maybe a tad more contrast, but this is fine.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    kilifila66, to be honest, I couldn't tell you how I did it exactly. I just played with it till it looked ok to me. I first converted to B&W, then added a little noise/grain then played with the contrast settings(I think that's the order I followed, not sure). PS might not be a necessity, but it will make life a lot easier if you have it. Try that and let me know if it works.

    Digital Matt, thanks for the comment. Like I said, still haven't gotten the R72, YET, but it is on my long list of stuff I think I NEED(and let's be honest, we need everything we can afford). I've been researching IR and it looks like the filter would work with any digital cam, what's your thought?
