At this point it's April 2007 and I'm only trying an IR or two on rare occasions.
Getting out all of my filters from their individual containers, screwing them together and onto the lens, carrying my tripod during the day or having to find a decent place to rest the camera or brace my hands--all of these things conspire to make IR more trouble than it's worth.
Especially when weighed against my results.
This wasn't any better in color.
It's like I'm not even trying.
This one didn't turn out too bad--I even kind of liked it.
I wondered at the time exactly why it 'worked' when so many had failed.
Still, compared to my color photography IR just isn't in the same league.
