Underwater IR Shot

For the second image, it appears you could crop 1/3 of the image on the right side, it doesn't add anything to the image overall. Also, the front part of the critter is a bit soft. I do like the dreamy look that the image has, however.
What a great idea to take an IR modified camera underwater!
Thanks for sharing these images.

I think the point I am trying to make is that unfortunately underwater the amount of infrared radiation is significantly reduced, unlike land photograph where objects reflect or emit a significant amount of IR. On land one is thus able to get images that exhibit a broad tonal range with IR. Underwater I think you are relying predominantly on the IR output from your strobe being reflected from the subject.
Thank for the constructive comment. I believe that IR photography has got its benefits on land. I was trying to achieve some of that, underwater. Just like you said, " Done in POST.. i think with IR processing and with the extended knowledge of PS, most IR can really be a work of ART instead of just "Desaturated Image". let it be land or underwater. So what i was trying to do , was to muck around with land techniques and see if there's other possiblities of making the underwater world, as well all know, beautiful. Will take into consideration of your comment and learn from it. Thanks
