About the Image(s)

This image was taken in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, a few miles west of Las Vegas, NV. My camera was a Panasonic DMC-G7 which had been converted to IR with a 590 mm Supercolor filter. I used my usual Lumix 12-60 mm lens, at 60 mm, 1/400 sec, f/5.6. The original OOC was cropped and processed in Photoshop, including a channel swap action, followed by minor exposure adjustments.

Lovely shot, well composed and exposed. My only quarrel is that your processing almost turned it into a natural-looking image. If I were seeing this outside of the IR group, I'm not sure I'd immediately think "IR" here. I think it's mostly because of the blue sky and green leaves.   Posted: 01/11/2022 14:34:24

Yes, Henry, I agree. Makes one wonder doesn't it. I don't remember all that I did in the processing, but I do remember that in Nik Color Effects Pro the Contrast Pro filter really brought out the impact of the sky.   Posted: 01/14/2022 17:17:31
