    Cool "Extreme" Infrared ... Update.

    Some experimentation in post processing with filters and color channels.

    Beautiful Bill and not too extreme for me. The trees reminds me of oriental ivory carving.

    I wouldn't call it extreme, Bill. After all, IR is pretty extreme to begin with! I think I like this version better than the original, actually, and I liked the original. Bil'z right, those trees do look like carved ivory.

    Bill, Bill, Bill....
    The more of these you post - and you keep getting better and more creative with the IR - the more tempted I am to get a converted camera.

    I agree about the duo-tone. The blue really brings a beautiful contrast to the scene.

    Hi Bill,

    Really great work here.....

    would you please let us know what the L1 conversion would cost?

    Default Well, it's not 4/3rds, but for an infrared camera .....

    I've decided to get one of those Sigma Closeout SD14's at $350 from Amazon. I've been pondering one of these because of the Foveon, and the "user convertible" Infrared both ways by changing a filter over the sensor. But the really final determining factor is the User installable Olympus OM mount for lenses.... no permanant or destructive modification to the camera, so you can put it back to Sigma lenses by re-installing the Sigma mount. There are also Nikon and Leica mounts for the Sigma SD14 body. The OM lenses would not be autofocus, but the focus confirmation on the Sigma SD14 works with the OM Zuiko lenses, and I have a full batch of those. Also, the crop factor is 1.7x instead of 2X.

    Not giving up on Olympus 4/3. Still waiting for the Micro, but this looks like a dynamite way to get Infrared, plus use my Olympus legacy glass. The mount conversion is $150 and completely reversible.

    Ron,
    Unconfirmed... $350 US. If that changes, I'll let you know.

    I like this shot a lot. How did you get the blues? My IR's never turn out that way.

    Bill, despite the extensive praise for this image, I will be a contrarian. It doesn't say anything to me, and just leaves me puzzled about your objective.

    If your objective is to simply create an interesting graphic, unrelated to the character of the place, then it partially succeeds. Certainly it is striking with the color substitutions, but I don't find it especially interesting in composition or form, nor do I find it aesthically attractive. The odd colors grab attention, but that's it. I quickly tire of them.

    If your approach is to reveal something new about the place, something not normally seen, then it really doesn't work due to the artificial color substitutions. IR images can reveal new things by emphasizing a part of the normal spectrum, which can change the emphasis of elements in the scene. This one doesn't do that for me.

    Despite my criticisms, experimentation is a good thing!

    Bob,
    Thanks for your candid comments.
    Experimentation was, in fact, the goal and I liked the results hence; the post. Overall, it's been well received but, as all in life, not everybody has the same taste so contrary opinions are expected.
    Again, thanks for your comments.

    Hi, Bill, I guess the "Outstanding" couldn't express my prise about your IR works. May be the "Perfect" is more conformable. So beautiful!
