Yes, that one would certainly lose something in B&W.

Riot of colour.

John, that image is unlike your other images where you've moved the camera during exposure. This appears to be shot with a mirrorless camera or it's some kind of video image.  Care to reveal your secrets?  :)

In any case, I love it.

I had to look it up. Ok, you mean the multi-exposure flower image. It is about 7 or 8 shots on the same frame- so to speak. In-camera. You need a camera that has multi-exposure capability. Most of the high end cameras have this, about 10 or 11 per frame. Some only allow 3 or 5 per frame.  My Pentax allows 999.

I did a simple, but slow diagonal movement at highest speed possible- like about 250 or higher to avoid blur (ha, ha). You can also do spirals and even create patterns where there was none.

The trick to these is to look for a subject with different colours or patterns that adjoin each other and are continous- such as found in garden flower beds. Not everyone likes these. But I have found you can win them over if you keep in mind the old adage, technique is secondary and composition and mood are primary.

These are very cool indeed, John.

Now please show us one using 999 shots!   ;)

Thanks, John. My D800 can do multiple exposures, I think. I will learn how today.
I don't think you've posted this single image I didn't love.

Such richness of detail! I enjoy letting my eyes wander through this image.

You sure that's not part of lemon meringue pie? Delicious indeed.

I am unable to go out and photograph at this, my favourite time of year. Had to paint washroom instead and do repairs. But as I opened the door to go out and buy supplies, I espied this wonderful image. We know what it is but I still consider it to be abstract. I cropped slightly in order to have one ray of light carry the eye out of the frame, while the other stayed contained. A nice tension.

Nice one, John.
It's a good thing you have your camera with you when doing household chores.

Is it abstract? Who knows, the intent was not a record shot.

I don't know why, but i feel a distinct urge to give it a title: Cat's Claw

It's nice, and sufficiently abstract for me.

Jim, what are you up to? I thought you cancelled your Fuji GFX order. Looks fascinating and intriguing at same time. Some parts look out of focus, where the lines start to curve. Optical illusion? Reminds me of those end-of-broadcast stripes and colours when a station would go off the air.

I did cancel the GFX order. Then I found out you could do manual focus stopped down with native lenses, after believing people who said you couldn't.

As to the image, let's just say I'm playing with the electronic rolling shutter of the camera.

Ah, sure, so we should technically be able to do something similar with an iphone.

I also found btw that my little Sony has a special JMR mode. It is high iso noise reduction, which takes several shots for stacking, but it doesn't necessarily have to be hi iso, and the burst of images is more like a short movie, although the camera sounds 4 shutter release clips. That just seems to be for processing purposes, not actual exposures.
