For me, shooting infrared can be a challenge because you sort of have to guess if a certain shot will be great or not so great in infrared because you can’t pre-visualize what the infrared spectrum may be imparting on any given landscape. I hoped this gravel lane with the patch of green grass in the middle would be good and I feel it is a critical part in making this shot appealing.
I enjoy Infrared also, but just like you I have trouble with the right settings. What you have shown here looks great to me.
Jpgs are easier to process than raws for me. the raw converter doesn’t read the data properly.
