    These aren't exactly landscapes so I posed them in the general gallery. One of my loves is evoking powerful feelings with a more dark-sided point of view.

    They are shot in color by the camera, which look very red when first opened. All it takes is setting a custom white balance in Adobe Raw, a little tweeking in levels, and swapping the red and blue channels and the above results are pretty much what ya get. No color was added back...in fact, most of these are actually desaturated a smidge.

    nice work, the motion blur caused by the longer exposures work well with the chosen subjects....nice PP work too.

    Thanks! I love shooting infrared...to bad it's such a pain in the butt with an unconverted camera. Focusing then putting the filter on without changing the focus, dealing with long exposures and noise, blah blah. If I ever have an extra body and the money, I'm definately going to convert it.

    Is there an R72 in the Cokin lineup? It might make it a tad easier if you just have to drop it in.


    EDIT: Just found that the Cokin P007 is available. It is resin and not glass, but supposedly similar to the R72. A bit pricey at $72 from B&H ($45 from Amazon). The advantage might be the slip-in filter vs. the screw-on filter after you're all focused.

    :thumbup::thumbup: Very impressive. Really love What Lies Beyond. That is my fave of the lot.
    I see you had a little bit of wind too. I shot a cemetery in IR last year, and only shot it that way, cause of the wind. It created some really creepy effects.

    Well done on these. :thumbup::thumbup:

    Wonderful shots. The R72 is definitely on my wish list.

    Melissa, if you wouldn't mind, could you give a detailed explanation of what you have to do once you get the image on your computer? I know you briefly covered it in an above post, but I would really like to see a detailed explanation.

    Thanks!
