Is this infrared or some other filter?

it's done in post-process, in PS. I converted the picture in BW, then I recolored it using the original color version. So in PS my layers are : the original color version at the bottom, a BW conversion layer in the middle, a copy of the color version layer with the blending mode set to "soft light" on the top ;)

J'ai du mal à penser qu'un rat du désert puisse avoir un email ^^
En tout cas la qualitée de la photo est impressionnante, super détaillée.
Bien joué

merci pour le compliment, je reporte le mérite sur ma petite 50mm f1.4 : y'a pas photo, quand le focus d'une prime est "spot on", aucun zoom ne peut rivaliser la qualité et la netetée d'une prime :)
bonne année à toi :)

there is a guy with that nickname on fredmiranda.com Landscape Photographer Forum - [link]

I suppose that could be him. He makes some fine photos... ;)
I bet he'll be very satisfied with this portrait, it's really good.
