Here's an infra-red shot of a cactus that a user captured & posted at the Nikon forum that I belong to...

Seems that they reflect an awful lot of the IR. Maybe that's why they don't get hot in the desert?

Beautiful...looks like an undersea shot.
Does the colour come out like that or is it corrected?

Look more like infra-white to me. :kilroy:

I'd be interested to know what time of the day the shot was taken....day/night ??
Unusual shot :applause:

This one is a DOF with IR....(don 't ask me to explain either) :d

Water doesn't seem to reflect light like other things, looks the same as a "normal" shot....interesting.

Cool shots.... I dont have a powerful camera, I love photography myself. I did a few units back in my younger years, when we use labs to develop pictures. It was expensive then, and I did not know what I want (except to fly- my dad did not like the idea of a female-of-color-pilot. If you know what I mean... my Dad's Hawaiian, mom's Asian. He said I will not make it even if I try.)

Opps sorry, I told you my biography (off topic there)

I got interested in IR photography long before the fancy stuff there is today.
Pentax S1a (no TTL metering, screw-mount lenses)
Only way to buy the film was in bulk and load your own cans
Maybe one lab in 1000 could process it decently so you tried yourself or found the 'one'

It's amazing to see how perceptions of the world change based on the different lighting. As you can see from the pics above, there's a new level of image definition too. It would be interesting to see side-by-side images of 'natural' light and the IR.

I know of at least one silk-screen artist who used IR photos as a source because of the difference with things like trees, foliage and reflections ( like on the car in the last pic.)

Nice Post P!
