Seeing as the sun was out, and the sky was mostly clear, I had to take the IR cam to the park again. Actually I'm half undecided if I should split this post into wildlife too... but they were all at or near the park.

All processed from RAW by ACR, which seems to have difficulty coping with the extreme adjustment and doesn't get the colours right requiring me to do a 2 stage approach. First two had channel swap applied.

These shots are taken with the 300D?
Nice style of photography :wink:

Yup, it was taken with the modified 300D.

The first two are certainly the best! Great job.

Want to describe how you create these pics?

Look up IR photography. In short, it can be done with normal DSLRs by adding an "IR filter" to the lens. These block visible, leaving IR only which the camera sensor is sensitive too. Unfortunately on normal DSLRs, that's unwanted so it is filtered out, but enough gets through with high ISO and/or longer exposure. A modified camera replaces the IR block filter with IR pass making it much easier, which is what I have done to the 300D if you want to check the link in my sig.

Output is very red, so takes a huge white balance adjustment to get the characteristic "white" look. Different wavelengths of IR still get detected differently by the sensor giving the subtle colours. In most of the above images I've left it mostly as it came out of camera. On the 2nd I swapped red and blue channels to get a blue sky.
