    Well here's a normal b/w IR with a sepia tone:

    These two were meant to look old and beat up:

    Thank you. Well, I use a Hoya R72 IR filter. I'm new to this myself, so I don't know how much I can help, but all I did was convert the pictures to b/w in Photoshop using the "high contrast red filter" setting in photoshop. My Pentax K100D is pretty sensitive to IR light.

    I just composed the shot, screwed on the filter, took a shot using my camera's recommended exposure, then changed the exposure from there until I was happy.

    I just kept the exposure the same, focused to infinity for the pano.

    I found the white balance looked great set manually pointing the camera directly at the sky to set it. Of course, if you shoot in raw, this can be changed in postprocessing.
