My first IR pictures! Answered

I recently build an IR filter for my Acer 5610's built in webcam, and it was a pain in the ass, so tiny. Anyways, these are my prelimniary results. Picture taking was less than ideal today, at this time of day but I like what I came up with. Any suggestions as to what to photograph next?

But the sensor in a webcam IS sensitive to the near IR (unlike your eye), so the heavy red filter might be sufficient to create an IR camera. In particular, we do see the "bright foliage" effect typical or IR photography, whereas if the filter we just removing green, foliage would appear black.

I don't see white trees. I see blue trees, like the red and green have been filtered out.

If you followed the "Infrared Glasses" Instructable as it appears, these are not IR pictures, but pictures with the green removed. It's much easier to get this effect in Photoshop.
