I have seen some stunning infrared images online lately so I thought I would see what I could do.
Canon 60D (unmodified)
Tamron 10-24 @ 24mm
Shutter Speed- 30 seconds
720 Infrared Filter
Would love to know what you think of it.

Pretty groovy. Those clouds on the horizon line almost look like a snowy mountain range. Cool shot. :thumbsup:

Like a leaf out of a Storm Thorgerson book. Neat.

Not sure about the yellow highlights, but I like the rest.
There are some cool techniques were you swap various channels in PS to create a false colour image.

Thank you very much Marc, H and David :D I appreciate the feedback.
To be honest David I had not noticed the yellow highlights until you mentioned them. That's the beauty if a fresh perspective on things I guess. Thanks for pointing it out. They actually do look bad to me now. I'll have a go at correcting it.
Great image Greg
It's like a scene from another world in another galaxy.

Very much like it Greg!
I have a few pics that I need to " process" ...ie a picture of a rose that I took but never processed it in PS to show the "colours"

Nice. I like the effect.
I have used IR film in the past and found it fun to use.
Just curious though about the filter transmission on the digital camera.
There are lots of graphs that show poor transmission in the Ha region for digital cameras and this is why people go to the effort of modding their cameras for astrophotography. I assumed that all radiation below ~6570A was blocked by the internal filter. You seem to have plenty of light getting through the IR filter.
Does this mean that the internal camera filter does let through IR?

Thank you so much Ric, Bart and Terry :D I'm glad you all like it. Terry- I'll be honest and say that I'm really not sure about the technical aspect of IR filters and mods. My limited knowledge is that an unmodded camera does let in bit of IR but some cameras are better than others. When I say they let in a little bit of light I really do mean little. I needed a 30 second exposure for this sceen in bright daylight. If you have a modded camera you could do the same in a fraction of a second.
