That wavy corn is excellent. Very effective.

A really informative and easy to understand write up. I'm sure lots of people will find it useful. I used to like using SFX years ago which was really IR cheating but it gave a nice gentle effect. Now I'd just go to Nik Silver EFEX if I ever feel the urge.

Thanks everyone. A bit amiss of me, Charlotte I'm glad you like it enough to include into your favourites.

Right enough for tonight time to get ready, hopefully the hangover won't be too bad tomorrow. The question is can I keep to the New Years resolution ... Tee total for all January, my wife gives me a week!

IR has worked a treat for this one - it has enhance the rows of wheat. Lovely tones.

Happy new year mate.

Blog looks cool on the technicalities (Im no expert so didnt add a comment).

Id maybe investigate the difficulty level (inc pro/cons) of trying to convert a DSLR to I.R at home. I know Tim (Cirrus) has done it successfully after some net research on his old A100 recently.

Perhaps one glaring omission is a section on the type of image that would benefit from the I.R approach.

Time of day , reflective vs ambient light , foliage pure greens / blues vs muted tones , is the subject matter approached with a b/w conversion in mind (angular lines working with strong contrast) etc....

Random thoughts.
