Default Balboa Park. San Diego.

Recently made my very first trip to Balboa Park. So worth it. The lighting was perfect due to the time of day but I did the best I could.

Russell,very nice images. I don't usually take architectural IR images myself, so I am not really a good critic of these. I think #1 is my favourite of the three. Only real comment is that the building in #3 looks a little blown out, but I suspect the lighting may have been a little tricky in places. What processing app(s) are you using?

Would you care to share the "techie" information - filter, exposure info, etc?

Good capture of a fine subject. The inclusion of distant people adds humanity to what might have otherwise been too sterile. I agree with WesternGuy, a little more highlight detail in #3, if possible, would be better. IR can be printed for drama as well as an airy effect.

Thank you both. #3 was a hard one as the morning sun was full blast on the front of the building. I was not in control of the time of day of the visit to the park and had to do the best I could.

It doesn't help either that the metering responds to visible rather than infrared light. In a case like this, a histogram is your friend. A live view histogram would be preferred, but you can also make do by shooting a test shot and reviewing it (with histogram) on playback. An overexposure warning can also be helpful. I have generally found that Nikon's overexposure warnings tend to be more conservative than Canon's and will warn of overexposure on a part of the image that isn't quite overexposed. If you shoot in RAW mode, you may also be able to recover some detail from parts of the image that register as slightly overexposed.
