Re: Some recent infra red shots.

I appreciate it was not a factor under your control, but something I always feel 'makes' a good IR image is a strong sky. Number 2 above - the Priory - has nice cloud formations, which come out well in IR and give the sky interest. Number 4, by comparison, has nothing going on in the sky, and is less interesting on that front. Number 1 is sort of half and half cloud interest at the horizon, but nothing further up. Sadly, we can't control the skies!

Looking at number 4, I also feel it's a bit dark in the lower half you're losing detail of reflections in the water, which could be brought out. Maybe try Auto Levels in PS as a simple fix, see if that helps? Or if you use LR, try a gradient with maybe +0.5 stop from the bottom to about halfway up?

What's your normal post-processing routine?
