    Thanks everyone :) Jonmikal, that's not just an "IR look", that's true IR. I used a Hoya R72 infrared filter over my 50mm f/1.8 lens. I don't have the specs on me, but I'd guess that it was ISO 200, f/11, 20-30 second exposure. I only adjusted the color balance in PS, and sharpened it.

    Great shots. I love that faint blue outline you caught surrounding the frog. Excellent work.

    Thanks Van. Jonmikal, it should work on your D70. This shot was in the middle of the day, about 3pm. The filter is a dark red filter, which lets no visible light in. Most DSLRs have an IR blocking filter over the CCD/CMOS, because it helps to reduce noise. This is why you need the very long exposure times. If I had shot wide open at 1.8 I could have probably gotten away with 2-5 seconds.

    You have to be careful what lenses you use as well. Some lenses will yield a bad hotspot in the middle of the photo with the IR filter on. I don't have any knowledge of Nikon stuff so look around :)

    Thanks Nytmair. It's not black and white at all actually. If you could see the sky, it'd be bright blue. :)

    I just noticed a mosquito to the lower left of the frog in that first pic :) I wonder if it got eaten :p

    Matt, these are all great, but the light in the first one is just sublime. Super shot!
