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! Grin 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.

Fascinating idea. Really must give this a try. Sort of a Alien's eye view effect!

Hey - I like this - a swirl of bark! That vortex is so well placed - can go straight through - almost like a portal. Love it.

Another great shot, how far do you rotate the camera, as the trees as most looking fairly straight?
Loving the effect though, spot on.
DRicherby 9 269 725 United Kingdom
30 Oct 2010 3:11PM
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. Smile

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.
