I took a drive through the high country yesterday, and I stopped briefly to photograph this great antique fire truck with my IR-converted Nikon 1 V1 camera. This shot was hand-held using the 16-35mm f/4 AFS G VRII zoom-Nikkor lens via FT-1 adapter (it’s a great combo on the IR V1). I processed this image in Lightroom 5.2 (just updated) and then converted it to monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 (guidebook). The tint/glow effect was courtesy of the “Sunlight” filter in Color Efex Pro 4 (guidebook), which I applied selectively via Control Points.

Thanks for looking.
