The first two are terrific. They seem almost IR. Are they?

No, not IR or "Photoshop IR".
.
Files opened in PS and then brought into Nik Software Silver Efex Pro (B&W conversion tool). Used the "T-Max 100" film settings, and then applied filters (green to two, and red to the other). Next, adjusted overall contrast, and then added a few select "points" of adjustment (in Nik you can add points to adjust contrast, etc., to specific areas). Applied the Silver Efex settings and then back in PS, adjusted curves and added local burn and dodge. The Silver Efex settings are on their own layer, so I pulled back to about 95% this layer, letting just a taste of color come through. Also, selective erasing of the B&W layer to let more color come through. Sized images and applied "unsharp masking".
.
Thanks for the comments everyone. Southern Utah is an amazing place. I've been many times, and it never fails to amaze me. From very desolate places, to the extreme and grand landscapes. Abandoned cars, ghost towns, and endless red rock.
