Infrared Help Please (2 pics with 5700)

I've seen some good looking IR shots on pbase, so thought I'd take the plunge. Purchased a Hoya 67mm R72 filter for my 5700 and used the Nikon adapters that I already had.

The first thing I noticed is that BOY, IS IT DARK with the filter on. Today, I went to friends house at the lake and took several pictures in the bright sunlight, and used exposure times of 1/2 to 1 second. I'm linking to one scene taken with regular lens, and the same scene with IR lens. To me the IR photo seems to be not in focus. Is that because the there was a slight breeze, or am I missing something else.

I've processed each photo in PS7, using only Auto Levels (on both), and USM of 100/2/1 on the 'regular' photo. I then resized them.

Oh, I also noticed, for the first time, that I have several hot spots in my camera.

Any suggestions, comments, etc are welcome. Thanks,
