As I seek subjects amenable to ICM, I see that you are a master. Lovely images.
PS I do need more exposures/frames ;)

Taken earlier today at Hilton Falls.

I see you have a new flexible lens, so you can make the upper half do ICM tricks while the lower half of the lens stays in a fixed position.

Neat effect!

Thank you Eric. Instead of turning the camera slightly on its centre axis, I turn it on one end and move slightly up or down. Not so easy to get the look you want. You just have to experiment.

David, thank you. But it's not all its cracked up to be. In-camera, you just have to practice and experiment, though you will have many failures. I find the software based solutions tedious, and they require powerful computers because of the photostacking and blending needed. You are talking about 30 images or more per stack. I gave it up. Don't have the computing power or patience.

Here is a tip for you. Use a tripod for better results. Remove camera from tripod and using two hands place your camera and hands on top of head so that tripod head acts as a support for your hand and/or arms. Then frame your image and make minute movements, almost imperceptible. If you don't you will get images like this with pronounced ugly horizontal banding lines.

And just think how expensive this would all be if you were still using film rather than digital!

The second is the real winner in this set, IMHO.

Fine set, but I also prefer the second one. The first and the third are too jittery for me.

Thanks Francois and Eric. I told them not to be so jittery, but they wouldn't listen 8)

You see Francois, if you go by the Abstract thread, I was on rainbow ride. But now I am getting better and trying to set my world right side up...almost there...

This one is very nice with those fall reflections and the gravel portions interleaved.
I've seen your last abstract and I love the rainbow thing  ;D

Thanks Francois and Matt. One could say I fell for them. These were taken in the parking lot of the conservation area. Couldn't resist.
