    Holy wow those are cool. Could you give a bit more insight into how you did that? I'd love to undestand the technique.

    The technique:
    The first and most important thing; an IR filter. I personally use the Hoya R72 filter.
    OK, so after I get the picture on my computer, it has a very very red tone to it, because the D70 senses IR frequencies in on the red spectrum (apparently some are green, too)
    For the B&W one, all I did was desaturate, and increase the contrast.
    The Orange/brown one was a result of "auto levels" with a tad of tweaking
    The dark blue one was the hardest. I played around with the color channel mixer until I had a pleasing color, then brightness and contrast

    The rest of you, thanks, and you all need IR filters, too. They're worth the price :mrgreen:

    Good shots, not only the effect of the filter, which was well choosen for these pictures but also comps.
