Up Tube

By Birdseye
Strange bit of piping found on a recent walk. (about 5ft or 1.5m in diameter) A bit hypnotic when you stare at it. Shame there wasn't anything interesting at the far end. (Will have to revisit and take a prop!).

f5.6 1/60th 10mm

I think this is really interesting. My only regret is that there are two tubes visible at the end of the first, which is a bit disstracting.

I tend to agree with Lucy, the long tube is fascinating and has great visual impact, but the far end is a little disappointing.

Thanks Lucy and Eric, I agree with your comments. The end of the pipe isn't successful as I mentioned myself. I will have another go on this sometime. But in the meantime here is variation 2 with the offending distraction removed which is slightly better.

Well maybe with a self timer is your opportunity to pose at the distracting end of the pipework!!
The pipework effect is great and really challenges your view ( even when I have my vari focals on!!)
