Image 1: A false colour IR image of Cwm Ideal, north Wales, UK. It is composed of a monochrome IR image, and green and red channels from an RGB image, re- coloured in Photoshop to simulate the way that IR false colour film worked. It may be too garish for some tastes (including mine!)

2. I much prefer the subtlety that cane achieved. In this case the IR image was "channel swapped" to give blue water!

The first one is really alien-looking, it seems to be another planet.

I love the second one!
You can almost hear the sound of the water.

What was the exposure time?

The ferns fractal like shape is always interesting.

Curious and trying to see the invisible.

The exposure time was 1/30th second with 200 ISO. I have top say the shot was an accident when testing some new filters!

I like them both.
Bring on the psychedelic in the first one!, and that blue waterfall stream is a perfect accent in the second.

Lovely composition in the 2nd photo.

The funny thing is that over time the brightly coloured images we UV/IR photographs tend to produce have begun to look "normal" to me. :lol:
