Back to an IR image from last summer that I just got around to converting. Note this is true IR from a converted old camera.

One thing I love is the deep dark shadow areas, caused by no IR reflectance to me adds depth & a surreal mystical quality.

I had been disappointed with the results until I ditched my old mono workflow and tried a few different things.

Great image. I like the way the soft foreground contrasts with the moody sky

This works particularly well in IR. The grasses look as soft as feathers and there's just enough hard black to give the image a bit of bite.

I am so pleased to see this--an example of what IR is supposed to look like--- I have been tempted to use some conversion filters, --not too pleased with the results, but this is marvelous-- I especially like what happened to the fg grasses!

Super foreground, you can really feel the movement in the crop, strong lead into building/tree and a good sky, a cracking image

Excellent IR processing and image. Really like the lines in the corn leading the eye and the sway adds a lovely softness to the image.
