That's an amazing series birdie, they have a surreal quality that really appeals to me :) #12934

Is this a single image or a composite ??

Amazing clarity, great tones. #23243

Thanks, Clifton and Andrew. This is a single image, PS work just in the left foreground, as it was too dark there.

If I can ask.. what digi-cam do you use? and what IR filters? or is the cam modified ?

I use a Nikon Coolpix 5700, it is not modified, the IR filter is a Hoya 72R.
What I did not mention above is the normal processing of the image:
You import into PS, change to grayscale and then adjust levels. This is necessary. The IR sensitivity of the Nikon chip is not optimal, there are other cameras that do better, some have a filter, that blocks IR, you can not use these at all.
Hope that helps.

I forgot: Tripod is a must. You'll have long exposure times. The filter is very dark. #23355

Great quality photo. I want to compliment you on the way you do your frames. I've noticed you have a thin line of colour in the main frame, and it always goes with the colour found in the photo that you want to enhance the most. Such details matter a lot! #51460
