    Leo: I like the angle of the first image, however as a B&W not so good, needs deeper richer blacks, and cleaner brighter whites, and there is a lot of noise in the sky. That may be able to be cleared up if you shot in raw. The second image is too dark, as 3/4's of it is dark tones, need to be brighten up overall, which bring us to the third image, too bright.

    Cheers:

    Allan

    Leo That is okay. But, because of what you write, it seems as if the application of the IR400 effect was the only adjustment you made in post-processing. I apologise if I have interpreted this incorrectly.

    I think that applying a film effect is just one step in the process. I think we need to experiment with using film effects so that we know what they can do. Once we know that, we should then consider whether we need to make adjustments in addition to adding the film effect. For example, if we know that the IR400 effect will achieve, then we also need to think whether we need to adjust the brightness, or the contrast, etc, before (or after) we apply the film effect.
