Wyalusing state park in WI. Shot overlooking the backwaters of the Mississippi river where it meets the Wisconsin river. Unfortunately it was extremely windy that day so the closer trees are blurred some.

WB was set with a shot of my white truck in the shade...best I could do at the time. Shot in S mode.

What do you think? How can I improve these?

I think the third is your best one.. A levels adjustment would brighten all of them. Some say to swap the red and blue channels but I prefer this look to the pink foliage.. Matter of personal opinion of course.

I hope you don't mind too much but I took the liberty..

These look very good. You say you used S priority. What were the settings? Exif? Were they handheld? For handheld, I prefer to use P mode at iso200 and -2/3ev. Depending on the amount of sunlight that will get you shutter speeds of about 1/20s which is enough for handheld. I dont worry too much about setting the wb to something white. I just set it anywhere to the ambient sunlight with the r72 filter on. You can get some interesting sepia tones by setting the wb w/ filter under florescent light indoors and then take it out into the sunlight.

Not at all. I like what you did...now it looks more natural to me. I've been kind of avoiding any PP if possible to just show what the originals look like. I think I can improve on most of my originals with a little help so that I won't need too much work on them in PP.

These are very nice. Much better than my first go 'round. If you use Photoshop, you might try BradsIRaction. Sometimes it improves, sometimes not.

OK, I guess I didn't shoot them all in S mode. That first one was in P mode. I was also shooting from in the shade if that matters?



Thanks Nick. I have had the FZ1 for a few weeks and really wanted to get some good IR shots. Thanks for the link too. I'll keep it for future use but right now I don't use Photoshop.

Well, thanks to some tips in different post by fmoore (and noted by jsiladi
) I've adjusted these shots a little with a red/blue color swap and tried the all in one picture fix using Paint shop pro 9. I seem to like some picture like this better but the one of the picknic area I think I like more natural.
