Haven't converted a camera for infrared yet, but by putting an infrared filter in front of the lens still gives IR images, but the exposure times are eternal, almost.

An old factory ready for demolition. I added a single non-LB image too. If you want to see more, please visit my web page.

Have a nice day.

My fav is 3, Bjorn. Nice work!

Btw, I've looked into going IR with my Canon G9 (higher end point-n-shoot), but it looks like it's a lot of work in post to just get the colors right. Just going with an IR filter (and tripod and LONG exposure times) might be an option for me for beginning.

I have mostly done IR for b&w. I think color IR is a weird thing to do, but I may consider for later. I bought a couple of 720 nm IR filters on ebay and have so far only done it with long exposure times. You could do the same for experimentation. The postprocessing takes some time, but not too bad.

Infrared with my canon cameras haven't worked well at all, I must admit I've found that very disappointing. I have had an old powershot pro1 converted though. I do like what you've done here Bjjorn!

nice work - like the feeling of isolation in the second image.

I keep telling myself I don't like fisheye, just like i don't like so much of the HDR. Then I see images like #2 and have to question myself all over again. Excellent composition and the FE really enhances the ethereal nature of the IR. Wonderful images. Really like #3 too.

Thank you. For you Keith I can tell you a couple of things. First is, no two is not HDR. Second is that I have had the same thoughts about the fisheye and HDR as you do. I think I just stopped telling myself that I don't like fisheye, and started to use it. It is a really fun lens, and works also for more traditional subjects as family etc.

Have a nice day all of you

Wow, I love the IR tones. #2 is great too, and like kskinner said, makes me appreciate the fisheye. I really like the bright sun at the upper left margin of the frame; excellent work.
