*istDS Infrared

I've bought Hoya R72 filter and did first tests with my DS and K 30/2.8.
all shots with f2.8 and times 1/2 sec.

all done in RAW, converted to jpg using RSE and converted to b&w/resized by Picassa

Something about the first image I like. I don't know, surreal perhaps.

I like them too! I just have to get one of those R72 Filters.

Maybe this should be moved to the "Post Your Pictures" forum? Just a thought.

Very nice IR photos! I need to spend some time with my Hoya R72, perhaps get out of the city where I can find nice vistas like yours.

You mention "converting" to B&W. You might consider extracting just the RAW Red channel from the Bayer conversion using software, if you are converting to RGB then back to B&W the Blue and Green are just extra baggage.

I love IR photos. I was very tempted to buy an IR filter but I read that the K10D doesnt do IR very well. Thanks for posting. Nice shots
