Oh wow, I like that. Normal everyday landscape looks so alien, almost as if the trees were just dumped there. :)

I think it's ironic that I take this huge set of pictures, and the first ones come out the best.

The yellow from the NIR bright surfaces really accentuates and distinguishes how this 'color' is completely 'alien' to the eye- hopefull it really demonstrates why IR photography is interesting to me. I'm forced to swap the IR image for colors that people can see, and with the false color technique you get a sense of the difference better than with pure b&w.

I've been doing 800x600 prints for the web, and I don't have a larger version of that particular image. There are some bigger prints mixed in here ( http://www.aeternae.org/matt/ir/irtest4 )- look for the files ending in nnx.jpg if you want bigger prints. I'll be doing much larger images once I get the technique perfected and can justify actual print sizes. Any bigger and you really begin to see what an amateur I am :)
