#1 is a classic but so much different in IR
#5 is the most interesting among the remaining ones
If I was asked to pick my fave I would have hard time deciding between those two.

Nice shots Roger. Old buildings and IR are a perfect match.

MiPr - Yes, #1 is very much a cliche shot, thus, I only took it because it would be different in IR. In this part of the country it is a bit unusual for the road to be so straight in such a situation and to be going downhill a bit and then uphill which I thought added a bit of interest.

Idleidolidyll - Yes, it is the IR ethereal look that works, to my eye (and to yours), on these declining structures that have come to the end of their useful life, or near so.

I probably started shooting old buildings in IR in the late 1980's. I experimented with IR (colour and mono) in the 70's but didn't use it much.

Old wooden building in overgrown grass and trees just make for such a good subject using IR.

These two are a bit random but taken in the early 90's using Kodak High Speed IR (actually, the 2nd one is a tin shed):

Roger - these are really fantastic. I liked all of them. Also Idle - thanks for adding in the contrast from film versions of IR. It is great to see the styles and transition....

thanks, I'm quite jealous of Rogers IR converted camera: so many possibilities! When I upgrade from my A7R (early next year I think), I'll send the A7R off to get converted.

A great set, Roger. I like #4 and the small tree in the darkened opening.

Yes, that is what attracted my eye. I tried to use the right side of the frame, the outside wall of the building, as a kind of leading line. In retrospect, maybe a tighter shot would have worked better. Thanks for commenting.
