Hey next topic we float to, let's start a new thread. 48 pages is plenty long, and then perhaps each thread can have it's own specific topic to cover.

Whadaya think?


btw - you can change the 'number of posts per page' in your preferences - I only see 7 pages in this thread ;)

'... jtlee321: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/578/thumb/421771.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/578/thumb/421771.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This is a 101 second exposure. The swirls are leaves circulating in the water.

First, congrats on the blue in the Portrait landscape challenge. It is well deserved and a great shot.

Your image is remarkably similar to jtlee321's 30 second ribbon winning image shown next to it.

In both images it is the remarkable clarity that makes them great. Obviously the swirls come only as a result of the timed exposures. That is cool, especially since the centerpoint for the swirls are so far removed from where the water enters the pool.

I gotta try this sometime, especially since jtlee321's image was taken so close to where I am. The effect is amazing. Great images, both.

I really like both of the images below. I tried stationing myself by a stream with the leaves coming down, and I wanted this same effect, but I never got anything I liked after several dozen shots. Thank goodness for digital! Anyway, I really respect these shots.

Thanks Steve and David!

I had never done this before either, but I got the idea from one of the non-DPC members (Ben) of the Ithaca GTG. He brought some of his images in a portfolio and he had one image of swirling leaves that blew me away. This was during lunch, and afterwards, I was determined to capture the swirls. I actually got some others that were very nice--here's one I was considering for the free study (but I went for the Streamlines photo instead, which did pretty well):

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/12253/thumb/428327.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/12253/thumb/428327.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

In this case, the exposure was only 6 seconds. I didn't have an ND filter, only my GNDs, and other people were using their NDs. I believe I used two of my GND "in opposite directions" (how's that for improvising) in this capture.

By the way, while we are on the subject of fantastic captures by jtlee321, I had his 2nd place ribbon winner in Landscape in Portrait as my top pick! What a fantastic shot, and composed in the style of my favorite landscape photographer, David Muench.
