As for the magenta tone, I didnt shoot raw and I didnt white balance the proper way for IR photography (I think you're supposed to WB with a greycard) so there was an intense red cast on the pictures. I processed as much as I could out.Wow! Fortunately if we click on it we can see it larger - try it and you'll get to rcubed's Flickr page...and then click directly on the photo there and you'll really be knocked off your socks! That is one extremely cool, science fiction style of picture!
I know next to nothing about IR photography but you picked a fantastic scene and photographed it beautifully, rcubed!
Couple of questions - are the magenta tones normal for IR? And can one film in IR?
