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.

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.
