About This unmanipulated photograph (8045) was shot in Discovery Park on 3 June 2009.

I hand held a magnifying filter (6x) to bring the moss (lower right) closer. I noticed that I was able to capture reflections of the sky above in the camera-side of the filter by tilting the filter away from the plane of the lens, and I quickly incorporated this into a series of shots.

There has been no post-processing work on this image. This is as shot (just a small contrast adjustment and the addition of the border).

Thanks for taking a look.

Roger - You have such a way with words. Thanks, man. But, yeah, normally a magnifying filter is invisible in the final product--you've just zoomed in. Here it has announced its presence but in a way which is not in its repertoire.

excellent application of a tool normally just used in a very boring way.. this lifts the lid on all that and kicks it up the tucker chute.. excellent well seen mate

Yes, that's what I'm familiar with--that edge distortion/blurring. Probably fun to play with. I thought this was a pretty innovative use of reflection.

naa, all they do is blur the lens around then it gos to focus in the middle, looks like you can angle it as well i guess to get a more warped setting


James Cook James Cook   {K:38068} 6/16/2009
Thanks, TK.

I guess I'm not that familiar with Lens Babies. Can you do reflective work with them as well?


The  King The  King   {K:4728} 6/16/2009
Interesting!!, almost like a Lens Baby effect :)
