    Good job :)

    Have you tried swapping the color channels yet? I ran them through PS real quick and swapped the channels. The first one is especially beautiful some blue and cyan hues!

    What camera/lens were you using? You've got a bit of a hot spot in the very center of each shot. That's common with a lot of camera/lens combos with IR.

    These are very nice, but also try swapping the blue and red channels using Channel Mixer in Photoshop.

    Neat! I actually like the colors the way they are ... but that's just me.

    Very surreal! I might adjust the colors just a TINY bit to increase the percieved contrast, but I wouldn't change otherwise.

    thanks everyone!!

    i'm using a D70s with the R72 filter and the 18-70 kit lense. i think i've got some dust on my sensor which upsets me a fair bit.

    if anyone has a play with the channels, could they post them in here for me to have a look? thanks

    good stuff.... you captured them well.... heres what two of them look like with a conversion... i slightly desaturated the second to my tastes because i dont like too much cyan...

    I prefer how the water looks with the channel swap.... but some IR photos you may prefer without the conversion... you dont have to convert them.... personally i have a range of IR shots where some are converted and others arnt. ;)
