After post-processing stage, this image - like another 100 or so - was just sitting there on my harddrive for a while, waiting to be posted. I made a B/W Infrared out of it. It just took some time for me to got used to it. While browsing through my local image collections this afternoon I came across this one again and frankly I was quite impressed by the impact that the Infrared effect causes to the overall atmosphere. As if I was looking at a huge explosion, a big bang, on a clear afternoon.

Post- & Pre-processing technique: A single RAW file has been optimized, pre-sharpened and tone-corrected during pre-processing stage. Got rid of sensor noise and clutter, inverted my B/W conversion applied with a Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer. Made some local selective colouring with the Selective Color Adjustment Layer throughout the scene. Furthermore, post-sharpening, the addition of a fabric texture effect [removed], local tonal contrast enhancements, and finally Burning & Dodging on a 50% gray filled layer in Overlay mode to enhance some dark / light areas throughout the scene.

Edit: I removed the fabric texture effect because some might think the image contains some heavy unwanted moiré.

Exposure settings: f/13, 0.013 sec (1/80), ISO 100, 12 mm
