Hi All,

Another go with the zoom blur technique. This time I mounted it on a tripod, added a polariser filter (it was bright sun and I wanted the shutter speed down). I tried with and without the 'shake reduction' function, turned out to be better with it on. I figured it might since the camera is still being rocked hard by my cranking the zoom.

Shutter speed was 1/20 sec and I had the aperture at f/8. I played around with various speeds from 1/10 to about 1/30, but this seemed to work best. I also lightly layered in the central flower focused sharp.

Because the zoom blur is necessarily a 'centered' technique I cropped it afterward to the 'golden spiral'.

How's it looking now?

Doug

An excellent crop. It bursts with energy... Now lets see how you get on with radial blur with your quaint, old fashioned techniques. Smile

Eric

I'd love to see that. SmileSmileSmile
