Since you're working with a digital camera, there should be no excuse for quality loss by scanning or so. I've got the impression, the Canon D30 can make much sharper and colorfuler photo than this example. You may know a very helpful web site for the digital phjotography

, don't you?

Pardon me for speaking frankly.

Or didn't understand that it was IR. For a first attempt at IR it is a nice shot. With IR I would add a little more life into it. Its amazing what a group of plants of different types look to IR. I have a seen some very good pictures with Buildings in a very bushy area look fantastic.

As mentionned and while I understand my photo doesn't speak to you, this is an infrared photo, a color band which you and I cannot see. I find it interesting as it provides us with a different vision of common objects. As for your comment about lack of color and sharpness, I would just say that I don't believe color nor sharpness are necessary to make a great photo, which is why we have black and white film, sepian tints and soft focus lenses and in that case, infrared filters.

 

Regarding DPReview, you should check our thread on Infrared photography to learn more about this interesting process.

 

I would be curious to see your photos.

Part of the beauty of IR is the otherworldly glow it gives everday objects. When I soaked in the shot, I didn't get bad scan, but impressionistic intent. At that it succeeds. I think it could be a little darker and still convey it. I believe IR has a slightly different metering and stopping dow a smidge might bring out the stamen, while still evoking the feel. well done though

IR or no, it remains that the fence is in focus rather than the flower. Yes, I know that focussing is tricky with IR, but the fact that it is hard to get the focus right doesn't make out-of-focus look any better. Maybe if you had bracketed the focus? Well done for the attempt, but it is only an attempt. Best regards, G
