The following two images are from the same image out of my Digital IR Camera. I think both look cool, but would appreciate some feedback. The Red one is closer to what comes out of the camera after recommended post processing of Color IR photos. The Blue one is the same post processing however the Red and Blue Color channels have been swapped, also a common practice processing color IR pics.

Any and all feedback is welcome, however try not to compare to standard color images or judge as such as this is Infrared, not standard color :)

I like these both. I think I prefer the red. The water sealed the deal for me. Just really like the detail.

Thanks. I'm still torn myself. I'm getting about 50/50 split for Red vs. Blue from people I ask.

I ordered one of each from Mpix on their Pearlescent paper as 8x10s. Should be here early next week. Looking forward to see what each looks like in print.

They both are neat concepts I prefer the second one it conveys like a cold frost has happened.

No need to apologize :) The first one is much more true to what comes out of the IR Camera with the filter I used. The second one is what they call False Color, it does yield a closer to normal color image with the IR feel to it since some people just can't get into the sky being red....For me, I think it depends on the image, sometimes the red sky is fine with me, other times I like the blue...in this case, I like both.

IR really works well with blue cloudfilled skies, water and foliage especially colored flowers. Well done on both. I use "Digital Infared PHotography." by Deborah Sandidge as my guide. She always recommends turning the sky and water to deep blues. You really need to splurge for 13x19 or larger prints to really may a statement.

I just got my prints back from Mpix on their Pearlescent Paper, all I can say is WOW!!! IR photos really do look great on this paper as well as Metallic and printed on Metal! These were only 8x10 prints, so I'm going to look at and compare the two for a while and then probably have one of them blown up to a larger size, maybe a 16x20 on Pearlescent Paper to frame an hang at home. I may also have one printed on Metal to compare. I'm very happy with this image, so I'm trying to compare several options with the same image to find out what I like best. If I end up with too many copies, I'll give some away to friends or family as gifts :D
