Here's one from Burning Man this year. I didn't get as many photos as last year, but got some good shots still. (too busy partying not wanting to deal with my camera/mess it up)

As soon as you walk into the inner section of The Temple you get this overwhelming sense of calmness and some times sadness. You look around at the people around and see the pain they are in...or some in a deep meditative state... some even just staring off into space in their own private little Idaho. It really is a unique experience compared to a lot of the other parts of the city. (Party Time! Excellent!)

Excellent shots, captainbert.
Just a quick question about the third photo: was it taken with the DA15?
I had a look at the exif. And what grad filter did you use.


And credit to you chaps using Super Takumars and the 50/1.7 because the details and Sharpness is brilliant. You've got keen eyes.

Thanks very much Mickey! I actually didn't use a grad filter on the third image but it was shot with an Hoya R72 Infrared filter. Yes it was indeed taken with the DA 15. Thanks kind sir!

Could one process a normal scene and emulate the use of an IR filter to achieve that same effect?

There is an online guide for done so with Photoshop which if you hunt for on google i'm sure you will find, however, i tried it and found it to be pretty uesless (maybe a more experienced person with better PP skills cold get better results). The results with shooting with a filter i would say in any case would be far better as you are actually working with infrared light. The Hoya R72 in 49mm filter thread is pretty cheap and i paid only about 23 pounds for i so if you have a limited lens then you could try it out for not much money invested. There is still considerable work to be done in PP most of the time though and Lightroom is pretty useless for it. Actually, Adobe Camera Raw in general is not great as the white balance slider only goes down to around 2000 kelvin and with IR shots to really get rid of the redness after shooting it therefore limits the results quite a bit. I have a demo of Capture One which allows one to go down to 1000 or less ( dont quote me on that but it's a lot lower than ACR that much i can say for sure) Using this allows one to get things a lot more balanced i personally find.After done so though there is still work to be done in Photoshop by swapping the red and blue channels and some other tweaks. I'm no expert at it by any means but if you are interested, there are lots of youtube videos and online guides available.

I was half way through the tutorial when I just thought: "I better get an IR filter"

It's way too complex(not difficult) to achieve, and not worth the whole process. For anyone who would like those results, just get the damn filter.

Yep it is definitely the way forward plus the results will be much better. In saying that even with the filter there is plenty that needs to be done in PP!
