Another one from wandering around in the woods. Again, no editing beyond the usual tweaks: the blur this time is from rotating the camera while the shutter was open.
All comments and criticism appreciated.

Tip tip idea.
A clever tecnique that looks well worth experimenting with myself....Phil
Another very good abstract David and I especially like how you have placed the centre of the vortex on the right hand third. Did you achieve that by cropping or is it another clever camera trick?
Pure luck, Phil! I took about half a dozen of these and the centres were all over the place. This one is actually uncropped.
Ah yes, an essential part of photography. My swan shots had a huge slice of luck too.
Clever stuff Dave. Very imaginative. You cant have wandered off centre cos it would have spiraled out of control!! It works. Thanks for your help with my recent uploads. Paul
Very cool effect. I'm surprised by how the trees stay so straight. Quite an unusual result but I do like it...........Sandy
As per a previous comment, I like the way the vortex is off centre. A great image Dave.
Good point about the straight trees. That indicates that the camera must have been still for a good proportion of the exposure, so I must have pressed the button and then started turning the camera.
Interesting effect. I'd think it would be easy to overdo this technique but this has turned out very well indeed.
I do like this, different and sucessful! Excellent work Dave!
I like the effect..
Super Work. Its amazing how the camera has caught movment as well as image. Love the title too. Well done
I like this one better than the previous one.
Must give it ago myself.
We might see a few of these now. Good imagination.
It's a good one - my attempts were all over the place and very frustrating! A
Nice image, what a great idea works well
Fascinating idea. Really must give this a try. Sort of a Alien's eye view effect!
As though a small whirlwind had come and swirled the leaves up . A clever , fun thing to do . Must try it xx
Great idea! Like the result! Very imaginative!
thx for sharing
Hey - I like this - a swirl of bark! That vortex is so well placed - can go straight through - almost like a portal. Love it.
Great image, love the affect.
Wow another image to keep reminding me of the endless possibilities when it comes to photography...
Lovely dynamic effect; very effective. Thank you for your kind comments on my PF.
Fun and nice, off-centre composition.
more experiments - this works well you are creating some nice effects here in this series, shows we need to use our imaginations more.....
thanks for the comments. great picture. most of my pictures are done on a link
Another great shot, how far do you rotate the camera, as the trees as most looking fairly straight?
Loving the effect though, spot on.
I think I took this by rotating the camera about 90° after pressing the shutter. But I'm not sure how far it would have got before the shutter closed again.
Interesting image, i like the effect
Interesting effect.good technical style, interesting. Dusfim
really interesting...... ive been trying something similar
this is a really great result
like this alot
Like this one feels like your being sucked in,
Liking this alot.
oh very effective !!!! like it............p.s. thank you for the train information very interesting
Rotating the camera? hmmm, that's interesting. I think it is manfroto's rotating adjustment pod. Very nice indeed. low exposure filter probably used to avoid overexposure while the shutter were open...
Great stuff, well done and thank you for your nice comment
No need for gadgets or filters. I held the camera in my hands and the woods are dark enough that a quarter-second at f/5.6 was the natural exposure.
I do like this - and once again, Dave - I've done this with the lensbaby with wild effects. This has good light and definition and the effect of the vortex pulling one in is quite good.
