About the Image(s)

mage shot on my Sony a7r converted to 560nm Infrared.
55mm lens 1/125 f22 ISO 100.
Custom white balance set in camera on grass. Imported with Capture One for Sony where I reset white balance. Sent to PS for channel swapping, then exported back to LR for pp adjustments and conversion to B&W.

The infrared effects nicely enhance this image which would probably look very ordinary in plain black & white. The simplicity of the composition and the rich sky all work together here. Very nice!   Posted: 10/09/2019 20:15:57

Hi Judy,
I really like this IR capture. It feels really dynamic with the combination of cumulus and nimbus clouds that offers guiding lines. These lines are merging very far to the right (pass the frame of this image) by joining the fence line. I believe that is increased the depth of the scene.
I agree with you and Lamar that in this image it is difficult to distinguish between what a B/W conversion of a color image and this IR image. The clouds, sky, fence and trees can look very similar in B/W.
Maybe you can directly convert your initial capture in B/W without swapping and see if it would give you more of the IR feel.   Posted: 10/19/2019 08:38:58

Hi Judy, It's awesome, awesome and awesome. It's almost perfect set to me. My only suggestion is to rotate the whole image clockwise the get horizontal horizon.   Posted: 10/20/2019 22:24:00
