I've been doing lot of work on Near IR aerial photo this year, but finally I have had time to play with making composite Near IR photo that gives different perspective on images. Most of the NIR conversion uses form of infrablue conversion that gives pinkish cast to the image and make the image unusable for normal viewing. This happens due to swapping of channel of color that happens due to filter that is used to capture NIR.

just by swapping the channels, you can create very nice looking images that looks surreal. the first image attached didn't have good white balance, third picture was done during summer with better white balance. With NIR, white balance is critical for good imaging. I retook the 1st image this morning with better white balance and it looks tons better.(second pic)
