  • what post-processing techniques

This was taken in the mid afternoon, handheld, using Nightshot mode on a 707. IIRC, the filters were Hoya r72, ND8 and polarizer. Post processing is seat of the pants type. Generally, with IR, I use PSP's Hue/Saturation/Light filter to desaturate, then apply contrast filter. I frequently then use PSP's Clarify filter, which is a special contrast filter, sometimes applying it twice. Then I use unsharp mask and apply a color tone using HSL.
