Infrared images: Black and white vs color

Back to my favorite infrared photography. As always the Leica M8 with the B+W 092 filter was deployed, but this time all images were shot with the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f2.8 lens. Although this lens on the M8 is 37mm so it’s not as wide as I would like for landscapes, the image quality is stunning. Also, it’s flare resistance is superior to the Voigtlander Skopar 21mm which I normally use for infrared.

This time I decided to post infrared images both in their black & white and color version. There are times when its difficult for me to decide which version looks better and the following images fall into that dilemma. When I talk about color infrared, basically it’s just a swap between blue and red channel, this ways the sky turns blue, while foliage get a yellow cast.

I decided to keep both versions of the following images, so that you can see how the same scenery looks both in color and b&w.
