A beautiful landscape well captured. Great composition and nice work you have done on the shot. The sinister blue sky makes a supeb backdrop. Well done.

Hi Sean, another lovely IR shot. I went out yesterday and tried the settings we mentioned yesterday but to no avail. I tried several settings and ended up going back to long exposures of 3 to 5secs. At 1/60 the image was just completely black. As I sloewd the shutter down I could see the image on the LCD but when I opened them in PS they were so noisy and full of colour noise that they were useless. The longer exposed ones weren't too bad when I opened them (in RAW by the way) and adjusted the levels and channel mixer, I still ended up with more or less a red dominated image. Have you any idea what I might be doing wrong? I'd love to get images like your last two. Paul

Hi Paul. There are stories going around that the IR capabilities on Canon DSLR's are not fantastic due to their very powerful IR-cut filters. It may be necessary to push exposure time right up to 20+ seconds. Saying that though, this image was taken with my little A95. Did you push the ISO right up? Also remember that you need to have lots of sunlight for the plants to be reflecting infrared. Shooting on an overcast day will cause the foilage to reflect minimal IR. My suggestion is to shoot in aperture priority (using around f8) and adjust your ISO to the maximum that will give you a clean noise free image. From there, use exposure compensation to make final adjustments.
Stick at it. It took a lot of calculations but not much time to get me to this point. I still manage to muck them up a lot!!

Brilliant Sean, I was beginning to wonder about the weather conditions aspect of it. It was a bit overcast last evening. Ok, I'm determined to stick with it. You'll be the first to know when I crack it. My first one here actally was at 20 secs but I overlayed the original colour shot to bring in some colour. Damned if I'll waste 20 on a filter I can't master lol. thanks again. PAul
