Experiment by FireflyPhotosAust Experiment by FireflyPhotosAust
This was an experiment. I was using a 9-18mm lens which I zoomed in and out during the exposure to see what the effect would be. It would have probably worked better with a lens that had a greater lower and upper zoom though. What do you think?

Incredible, you have two different layers at the foreground, and the sky appears to be unaffected, the contrast between the two colors is incredible, but the most amazing thing about this shot is the lead lines, they are definite, leading you into the shot, but you get to stop every inch or so and look as some of the detail below the lines..

Masterpiece and definitely an exceptional piece of work !!

The effect is like a photograph taken from a low flying aircraft?

It's a good picture.

Which one down the south coast or QLD? I'm still on Gold Coast. Will be here for next week & a bit. We're completely re-organising the office where I'll eventually be working. Its so hot up here!!!!! BUT it seems no-where as hot as down you're way. Den says its been high 30's low 4o's at home. Poor buggers trying to get work done in the heat & I think its nearly killing him!

Qld. I thought that you were having a holiday up there.

We got up to 44 at home on Wednesday. At least it was a lot cooler yesterday and today.

Well it is kind of, I get to the beach every day, which I love. That's why I'm so annoyed about my camera dying. Taking photo's with the P&S is not the same at all!!!!!!!!!!

44 is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!! How do the horses cope?
Reply
:iconfireflyphotosaust:
FireflyPhotosAust Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2009  Professional Photographer
It's definitely not the same with a P & S.

The horses just stayed in the shade and didn't move around much at all.

no P&S is not the same. I can't even manage to hold it steady anymore!

Well, maybe it would have worked better with a more zooming lense but the effect already was great like this!

I wonder how a panorama shot of such photos would look like? :D

:iconfireflyphotosaust:
FireflyPhotosAust Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009  Professional Photographer
Thanks Mark :-0

A more zooming lens would have worked better I think - more experimenting is required :D

Not sure how a panorama would go if you were stitching photos together as it would be nearly impossible to do the same on each photo.

Thanks for the :+fav: too :-)
Reply
:iconkram1032:
kram1032 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009
yes, that'd be a great problem. No way to stitch them.
And a 180° (fisheye) Lens can't zoom at all AFAIK...
Lol, someone gotta invent a tele-fisheye :D xD
Hmmm... might even work.... one just ("just") has to replace a single fisheye-lens with at least two other lenses which, used together, also fullfill 180°. And if you would move *both* lenses, it *might* be possible, to get 180° all the time but with different zoom-levels...
I'm not sure though: basic optics aren't *that* hard but if you add dispersion and such to the equations and take into account multiple lenses... OMG xD

Pretty cool effect :clap: I just discovered the joys of zooming :lol: i like this quite a lot. It has a great sense of motion--like warp speed. Great color, too andan excellent location for experimenting :clap: Well done! :+fav:
