    Hi Wolfgang,
    the effect is done by using a Hoya R72 Near-infrared filter.
    To prevent the red tint caused by the filter, I did a custom white balance. And to enhance the colours, Auto levels is done in PS.

    What abt your aperture, shutter speed? Any ev compensation required as the IR filter will darken the scene when viewed thru' viewfinder.

    But why does the tree has this greenish tinge while the sky looks grey-ish?

    I thought it was supposed to come out all b&w-tish?

    I don't think its a true infrared filter. Maybe you could try autoleveling?

    Hi Wolfgang, this is the original of one of the photos used in the stitch.



    By right, the photos will turn reddish. But after setting the WB, the colours will come out as shown...

    After autolevel and some curve adjustments...

    Hi thoa_rs,
    Err.... Hoya R72 in a Near-Infrared Filter.
    The first image in this thread is the result of stitching up a few images and auto-level in PS.

    If you have seen my past posts, this is how I love my IR photos

    Hi ordinaryless,
    err.. the image was in taken in bright daylight

    I actually love to take night shots after work... but my company does not allow cameras to be brought into our offices... So, no night shots during the weekdays for me.....

    Hi ark 19,
    Thanks for your shooting data. In program mode and the camera set aperture at f2.8, the dof is relative good from the foregrond tree to the trees beyond the reservoir.

    What do you use for your stitching? Sorry for the questions, but would like to try out on pano pics myself and need info on the stitching s/w.

    Have seen all your other pics, they're beautiful.

    Regards
    teerex

    Hi Teerex, I'm using Pixaround.
    Btw, if u r shooting for stitching, shoot in Portrait and don't zoom.

    Thanks to Agila, Megaweb and Wolfgang for your compliments
    Not everybody likes IR... My colleagues thinks its too dull...
