This so far I feel is my best shot and processed IR image. What you see was taken today (2/11) in the bitter cold... and then processed using color swap and some Hue and Saturation controls...

Canon Rebel XT, Canon 17-40L @ 28mm, 1/250", f/11, ISO200

For general information... here is what a properly exposed, proper WB shot looks like coming out of an IR camera...

Nicely done! I agree, definitely your best IR shot yet :thumb :thumb

As for critique... Overal impact is excellent, very "moving" shot - draws on the emotion of the viewer... color and tones are great... about the only thing I would change is the shadows in front of the shot, but I dont think there's much you can do about that.... the sky is very powerful and almost gives the picture a moving feel to it...

Beautiful shot, I don't think theres much to critique on this other then its wonderful. I not sure how you do a color swap though, to get that great effect in the IR photo.

Wow, very nice.. This would be a cool return to place to re-shoot this in the summer time.

I like the shot, I am a bit miffed at the shadows as well. The tone of the sky is just a tick dark, relative to the brightness of the snow. But thats not a biggie for me.

I gotta get me a IR lens soon.. ;) good job

Actually thats a very light sky for IR... normally an IR shot turns the sky black and thats the desired effect... =) you wont find too many IR lenses out there... either an IR filter (Hoya R72 or RM72) or having your camera be converted which removed the hotfilter and replaces it with an IR bandpass filter... sometimes these cameras come up used for sale (like this one) but just for the conversion its $450 and its non-removable...

Thanks Chris!

No critique here, looks awesome to me, one for the wall! I love the dark moody effect, and the color swap just adds to them so well!

I don't know a lot about IR shooting, but that is an amazing pic. Actually I love them both. Well done Ross.

I quite like the effect you achieved by adding in the hues to the different levels of the photo. It makes it very vibrant, but effectively cold. Like some how it emphasises the bitter cold even more than the original. Cheers mate, good job.

All though I LOVE the shot and think it is beatiful it really doesn't look IR to me. Just processed. I would really like to convert a camera for IR. A Sigma SD10 can be converted in seconds.

Yeah winters are tough... you dont get much in the lines of IR reflection from the trees and grass...
