Took last Thu off and used some hotel points to take my daughter into the city for the busker-fest and book shopping. From the hotel room had a great view of a path cutting across an abandoned lot. When I was in uni it used to have a bunch of slum apartments for the student crowd, so I guess the local authority finally wised up and tore it down!

First go at a 'zoom blur' which I've read about but never attempted before (this is probably take 34!). Kind of neat you focus zoomed in then twist your zoom to a wider angle while pressing the shutter. Needs a speed slow enough to blur the zoom without losing too much detail on the center. A heavy camera with light zoom helps! Probably a tripod would have helped more Wink

I have read about this-- always wondered how it was acomplished-- maybe a tiny aperture and log shutter speed-- pleus a tripod-- This looks good-- just enough focus to see what the image is all about!

Inspires me-- thanks, Jennnnn

Thanks Jenn. This was taken at 1/10th of a second with the aperature closed down a bit for some depth of field. Can't honestly remember now whether I when from zoomed out to in or in to out! EXIF says 55mm which is zoomed in on that lens so maybe I went from wide to zoom...

Sucked in. The Zoom effect pulls the eye right into the centre. Great shot.

What is the beige thingy (technical term) on the left of the image - a reflection of the room? Takes a bit away from the image.

Hmmm, I think the beigey-bit is actually the sidewalk that goes around the abandoned lot on the left and top sides.

To eliminate reflections from inside the room, I actually put my camera on the outside of the curtains. Couldn't do anything about the sidewalk tho Wink

I find my vision goes like that if I am foolish enough to try and run more than a few yards... Are you sure that's not what happened to you. Smile

Good work. It's nice when an experiment pays off isn't it? You need to look at the pic for a moment to see what it is, and that's no bad thing, quite often.
