Gracie Mansion - Infrared

gracie-mansion-2909 Gracie Mansion - Infrared

One odd thing. I did this shot with the file set to save as RAW and JPG and the color temp. came out properly. (This was then swapped with red for blue channels). But everything that I shot when the file was saved this way, RAW plus jpg came out properly, i.e. the RAW temperature was correct.

Now, is this something new in LR2, or is it just that the jpg helps set the color temp. properly. Not sure.

I re-imported an older CR2 RAW file that was shot without saving a jpg, and then still came with a very RED color temp. So, for whatever reason, at least with the 40D - if you do save the raw file with a jpg the infrared color temp. (assuming you’ve done the green grass or tree leaves color balance) comes in properly.  How’s that for a mysterious bit of esoterica.
