The moon doesn't seem to be so hot *g* .
Nice shot! :P

In fact, it seems rather cold. ;) Thanks man.

Those rocks look outlandish enough on their own, and the hues make them even more unreal.
How does it differ from an ordinary BW - I suppose IR makes the sky and moon much darker?
Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2008
Yep. The sky doesn't reflect much IR, whereas the red cliffs reflect a lot, providing for that high contrast environment. You could in theory achieve a similar result in classic B&W photography by using a dark red filter, but the result would not be nearly as dramatic or alien. Good question. :)

It would be interesting to try this same shot
in B+W w/red filter over the lens.
The foliage would become more prominent
which might not be a bad thing
but the sky would remain very dark.

My biggest problem is that
I'm not really into IR photography, in general.
It may be because of Shirakawa's "Eternal America"
which contains many, many B+W IR film shots.
I liked his color,
but hated his IR.

You're not the first person to tell me they can't dig IR. :) I've been experimenting off and on with a 3-stop Red filter on my digital, but I'm not getting results like you would expect with B&W film. I think I need to take some custom white balances, just like you need to do to be successful with IR, but I've been too lazy. The beauty of digital is that you can just open a color photo in PS and select your Red channel and you have pretty much what you'd get with a red filter and B&W film. :)

Wow man. So did you take this on Earth or the Moon? ;P

That's the feeling I love about IR. :) Thanks man.
