Riverside, Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I went in search of water, and found water. It was very windy so the water fountains were blowing everywhere. I set a custom white-balance using some foliage.

I forgot my cable release so maximum exposure was 30 seconds at ISO 1600, though I would have preferred a lower ISO and longer exposure.

I'm still waiting for the clouds to go away so I can take a shot with black (blue) sky.

The camera & lens:

Filters: Near-infrared (580nm)

Post processing:

The GIMP -

  1. Auto-levels
  2. Colour->Components->channel-mixer: Red channel has red +55 and blue +100, green channel has green +100 (no change), and blue channel has red +100.
Lightroom -
  1. Slight crop
  2. Curves: Lights +25, darks -25, shadows -50
  3. Fill light +10, blacks +20
  4. Noise reduction: Luminance +100, contrast +100, colour +100
  5. Vignette -30

The wash-up:

Other IR photos - other parts of the water feature, and one of a flower that just sucked (the photo that is).
