I sometimes like to play with the colors and textures in post-processing to see what kind of psychedelic world I can create. If you ever do this, show us some of yours. Here are some of mine.

Color Infrared: Orange filter to block blue, blue channel gets IR only. Equalize Blue channel to red and green, swap blue and red channel. Using FORTRAN.
For the Math Geeks.
values from each 2x2 pixel of the Bayer call converted to a complex number and used as input for the Mandelbrot equation. FORTRAN code that was mostly written over 30 years ago, modified to read DNG files.
This is data lost from the compression scheme used by the Leica M8.
Camera set to a "RAW" mode using a hidden command, then ran the true-raw data through the compression algorithm. Subtract the two, boost the remainder-
And why I never use lossy compression. Same FORTRAN code, different subroutine.
This computer lingo means I'm old. We saw "Hidden Figures" this weekend. The part where they read from the FORTRAN manual brought tears to my eyes. I have the FORTRAN manual from the computer that they used in the movie, one of my first jobs was converting software written for that machine, and its predecessor. Been using it daily for 40 years. Wrote my first image processing routine in 1979.
Took my daughter and a friend skating yesterday.
The other way to get wild colors. Straight exports to JPEG from LR6.8.

This lens is 60 years old.
The movie also had a guy using a Nikon F Photomic, I believe a "Bullseye" which would have been correct for the period. They only showed the side of the camera, so if it had a TTL meter on it, someone knew not to show the front.
