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