It is obviously still autumn here but winter is on its way. In the digital darkroom I have been editing a lot of pictures of autumn and have gotten bored of looking at the yellow and and orange tones. Sitting at my computer I thought about using a faux infrared toning, since I have not converted any of my cameras.
I started by using a technique that I have demonstrated before for the After and Before forum. The result was ok but the sky was very dark, looking at some presets in Lightroom, I remembered I had an infrared one that I never really liked. I applied the preset and everything was great except the leaves, as they were purple compared to the magenta red I was expecting. I tried changing the hue in Lightroom and had some issues getting the right colour. I decided to export the picture to Photoshop and use a hue and saturation adjustment layer.

a really funny idea!
Thanks, just trying to mix it up.
Hehe, it looks like a park from some weird dream.
A surreal dream I agree.
I like this colour
The colour does look nice doesn’t it.
Thank you Amy
I could see this in a children’s book. Or a motivational poster with some saying about rose-colored outlooks. Fun!
Possibly more a motivational poster imho than a childrens book. For a childrens book I think a little less contrast more dreamy would be better.
I really like how it turned out.
Thanks, I really like the colours, something different than the usual autumn pics.
I love this…I’m not a huge fan of the orange and yellow, much prefer the reds of fall, so this is awesome to me!!!
We don’t have that many reds in our Autumn palette but the yellows are blinding. I like the red in this picture because it gives the scene a totally different feel.
