For reasons I still don't fully understand and am definitely not (yet) able to accurately predict, infrared photos will often look very different from one another.

Obviously, the extent of the "IR effect" visible depends upon the source of the light illuminating a scene, but even when photographing scenes under nearly identical lighting, the strength of the IR effect can vary considerably.

This photo, for example, displays very little IR effect and absent the red/pink tint, I suspect that very few viewers will realize it wasn't taken using visible light.

In this case, the absence of a pronounced IR effect is a shame, because I like the composition and think the final, finished photo would be much more compelling if the IR effect was stronger. Oh, well...
