Somehow infrared photos to me associate with really deep memories that I can't really recall. ...maybe it is what I think it is....

Maybe so, but I don't think that it's from life, cause it's got that strange feeling...maybe from a dream or even something else...

This astounds me.
I have no idea what infrared is.

Infrared Photographie you can do either with IR FILM or like in this case with IR Lense which you have to put on your normal lense to exclude or filter visible light... :D

I'll have to add this comment to my bookmarks so I'll remember which lens to buy for when I get a decent camera :camera: :-)

I know there are dozens of tutorials out there, and I understand the basics of taking an IR shot. I myself On a Hoya R72, and recently started toying with it a bit to figure out how the whole process works.

Upon taking a couple photographs, I see that They are red and the vegetation is either pure white, or has a small hue of pink. Some tutorials are saying that that is normal while others are saying that the pictures should have a sepia look to them even before editing in PS.

So I put my red and white/pink pictures into PS and go into channel mixer. I make the red 0 and the blue 100 and then proceed into blue, and make the blue 0 and the red 100.

My result though just looks like a very blue picture, not what they say it should look like.

Confused about it, I tried just taking the original red and white/pink image and just de-saturating it or making it B&W and it looks dull and not very vibrant, like most IR photos on DA do.

I guess I'm just a little confused.

Anyways, Your picture is breathtaking and I give it my humble two thumbs up. Great work.

The ir pictures coming out of my Sony F828 have just a monochrome somehow green color. So I have to edit the colors in any case in PS because the original colors are not so attractive... :D
