- Constructive Feedback Appreciated
My stuff: Nikon D90: 35mm f1.8, 55-200mm f4-5.6G
Tamron 17-50 f2.8 and a growing collection of other stuff.
Interesting. I kinda like it but it doesn't make me go WOW. I reckon if you used a darker environment and background, it would make the colours stand out a little more and work better. Fun experimenting with ideas, eh?

Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
Nel really likes the creative idea and likes the light. She said it's evocative. Nel would like to see more and wants Kym to have a go.
Nel also likes hanging out at the Art Gallery

I use the Impressionist tool in Corel Painter 4 Essentials (that came with the Wacom tablet) to convert pikkies to paintings - sometimes the results are quite interesting (I suppose it should really be "before and after"....):

There is also a method called spinning - you multicolour background and use the
Lowest aperture and a zoom lens- a ND Filter is also used(Still on shopping list for me)
You twist the camera and zoom at the time you are taking the image
and it produces an image that looks like water going down a drain
Haven't managed to be co-ordinated enough to get this to work as yet
but will post if I manage to do it.
I created this by accident. I was experimenting with a pinhole "lens" on my 40D. Set it to 3200 ISO. I thought that the auto exposure would work if I set it for Aperture Priority. I was wrong but got a reasonable exposure purely by luck. Not sure what the actual exposure time turned out to be. The "rainbow" effect is possibly caused by diffraction. I think some sunlight was falling directly on the pinhole from the right.
Does it have any photographic merit?
Interesting effect with the monet one Chris
Graham the rainbow effect is different not sure on the artistic merit lol BTW some dust bunnies there lol
Calx yeah some interesting software out there for art work effects - Alien Skin Snap Art is a good plugin also

We don't make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved. - Ansel Adams
I had to get a minor medical treatment today and looked at the prints in
shiny frames on the displayed on the walls with blurred sort of flowers in them,
I reckon your accidental image is better than what I saw today
Digital camera's are such wonderful tool, be creative and see what you can do
Have a look at www.ppsop.com

Bryan Peterson on www.Utube.com he has interesting and fun ideas
he also has a spinning trick that creates a image that twists like water
going down a drain.
Haven't managed to duplicate it yet, but will have fun trying though.
Haven't got 14-24mm f2.8 lens like Bryan Peterson
