I tried IR with carsten's camera once but could not get the processing right, you have made a fine attempt here, I like the effect very much

Not an IR expert either Albert, so cant really tell a good one from a bad one. It certainly is effective at making this a wintery scene. Looking at it as a normal mono, I would say the whites are blown in many areas, and have loaded a mod with that addressed, - but perhaps thats how its supposed to look. I would have tried to compose with those two wooden figures in further from the edge, - but of course dont know whats over to the left that would have been included.



Perhaps someone will come along with IR experience.

Many thanks for all the comments, it would seem that IR is not well understood.

I have shot infra red with film in the past at work and more recently with a Kodak wratten black infra red filter on an EOS 300D, which has only a weak high pass filter and trying pseudo infra red in software.

I assume this is a software attempt and the result is just a very high contrast black and white. This is not the best subject for infra red, having rather too much black and no sky. Best results have sun lit foliage, blue sky with clouds and light coloured stonework.

Have a look at my portfolio - there is a pseudo infra red of a church in there. Not perfect, but reasonable. You need to convert your image to mono but retain all the colour data - thus a simple conversion to mono will not do. (Grey scale images will not work.)

The Photoshop colour mixer or, better, the mono conversion tool, allows access to red, green blue and also yellow, magenta and cyan. You can then reduce or increase each channel until things look right - R,G and B being the most effective sliders.
