    Interesting, I like it. Is it "real" IR? or just a filter and some photoshop?

    thanks glad you like it....technique...I use a converted Canon 300D with L lenses in this case a 17-40. I process the RAW file in Adobe Bridge doing minor adjustments to exposure, fill light, recovery etc. Then I work on the created PSD file in photoshop and choose adjustments>b&w then choose a filter, usually green then click ok. I then work on various adjustment layers for different sections of the image to get the detail and tones I want before doing a sepia tone. On this image I also used a local contrast action of 200pxl to give better separation and add to the sky. Save the file then downsize for the web at 72 pxls then smart sharpen 100% at 0.4 pxls.

    thanks very much Neal.

    thanks a lot....real IR? That's an interesting question, what real IR is. A lot of people consider film to be the only real IR....but then what is regular digital photography. I think whether you use film, digital, IR filter or a converted camera (my case) it's all real, just a different means of getting to the same point, an image.

    thanks a lot....I don't have a straight b&w version.

    Thanks for sharing...You have opened my eyes to many things here including making images look better on the internet. I looked up Adobe Bridge and learned you must be an Apple byter. Then I googled 'Canon 300D conversion' and found another day's reading at LifePixel.com. Thanks again, learning keeps me alive.

    While were are in 'ponder' mode - PhotoShop has forever removed the meaning for real. When the last film photographer passes, IR will become simply an ancient art form. We are actually close to that day when most photographers don't know what the letters IR stands for. Soon, someone will rename the technique of digitally removing color and be lauded for it.

    Couple days ago I posted a shed, questioning reasons it's lifelessness. But what now strikes me, after again viewing your awesome shed...it's the sky, missing in my 'mossy shed' but your rock shed & sky complement each other, like 2+2=5.
