Clouds over Potomac (720nm IR)

During the pandemic I’ve been avoiding travel and occasionally ventured locally to capture some images. This was taken few days ago along one of the Potomac branches at the C&O Canal in MD.

Specific Feedback Requested

Any and all comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Technical Details

Is this a composite: No
The image was captured with 720nm IR converted Sony A7R . The image was converted to B&W and processed in PS 23.2 with TK8.


I love IR B&W images, Izzy, and this one is no exception. Well done. Curious how long your shutter speed was? I use a 720 filter on my regular camera and the shutter times are generally quite long. I have heard that’s not the case with an IR converted camera.


When using an IR converted camera, shutter speed is similar to normal photography. In this case, it was 1/80 at f/11 and ISO 200.
