PP Challenge #302

Welcome to Post Processing Challenge #302!
I will let this run for a week so you have until the 25th July to submit your entries.

Something a bit different for this weeks image, thought I'd see what you make of an infrared image. Shot on a full spectrum modified Sony a5000 through a 720nm filter. There is colour information in there, though its subtle, and you are going to need to play with the white balance and saturation to get it. I have also included a full size unsharpened jpeg with my white balance settings applied if you prefer that route.

Of course you can just go the black and white route and forget all that.

No rules do whatever you want as many times as you want.

Well I could have gone a lot of ways with that, but here's my attempt. Never tried an IR before, thank you for sharing and hosting!

Thanks for the entries everyone, its nice to see 4 distinctly different takes on the image.

Noel's has an otherworldly alien feel with the bold colour and contrast.
John's soft pastel pinks and blues leads to a much lighter mood, like a fairytale dream world.
Glenn's is a more dramatic edit whilst keeping the colours a bit more realistic (if that's possible for an IR.)
Lastly Todd has offered a black and white, I like the overall strong contrast and slightly wider crop.

Its a tough call between todd and johnc, but as much as I like black and whites I have to go with the light and airy version from johnc.
Congratulations John and over to you for challenge #303!

Thanks for the kind comments Glenn, and especially thanks to Graeme for hosting. Honoured to host the next challenge and it was very nice to see what others did with the image.

The next PP Challenge is now up! An image from the Scottish Highlands. I hope to see you there

I'm a bit late with joining this, but I had a lot of fun learning how to process infra red images, something I've never done before, and probably never will again! Thanks for hosting Graeme, and well done johnc for a well deserved win.
