IR Step 2: Auto Levels

Histogram is now more 'normalized'.

Step 2 Auto Levels

Create a Level layer and select 'Auto' Levels. This will swing the colors significantly. If you have a good shot, tree leaves and clouds will appear close to White in color at this point and sky will be Orange and/or Black.

Alternativly you could use the Auto Level Function in 'Curves' which actually I like better...!

other sizes: small medium original auto

Whoahhhh. I used your starting image to experiment with and yes, Auto levels really did make a huge difference. MAGIC!!!!
