Another go on infra red

Well I told you in my previous IR post that I love the blue and white wintery look of IR photography. Now with the red IR filter this effect is a no no, you can not have it. so it has to be done in edit. Finally I got close to get it in my program ( photoscape ), for photoshop or LR you can find a complete manual for this effect on the web. To start the photo has to be suited for it. You can do some inbody settings to help the editing. Like putting you WB very cool ( more than your program can ) so the trees already turn more white. Al the way through edit you walk a loose rope and have to balance on it. Light colors or areas on the photo can easely burn out and there is now way to recover.

On the other hand , if you get it right it can be very pleasing. The surreal feel of IR photography is something you love or hate. I must confess, I love it.

There is one great big enourmous advantage to it. For the ones who love to shoot B&W and yes I say B&W. You can create some stunning pictures; This is something I gonna explore more, there I am a bit of a B&Wholic.

Must say, this is the most edit I have ever done on a picture

Lovely conversions. And nice memories of the time I used an IR roll in my film SLR - must see if I can find them and scan a few...

I remember it well because the film had to be handled in complete darkness, so I was crouched under the bed covers trying to get it into the camera...

I really like #2. The colors makes it so Victorian...grinning

#1 is definitely IT for me. Love the blue and white combination. I assume based on what you wrote that you had set your camera to cool in order to achieve that combination. 
#4 although somewhat too dark for me, I do like the way the light falls on the statues.

You are definitely tempting me to try again. Btw what was the filter you bought for these IR shots?

Glad you like them. The filter is from Hoya IR72.
