I have not yet perfected the motion abstraction process..
And you may never. ICM does have a side in which things are never quite perfect and  the movement doesn't lend itself to reliable results. This is pretty good. But your white areas demonstrate why I avoid the sky 90% of the time. It is hard to balance these areas with the rest of the image. Bright skies draw all the attention.

Nice.
And it looked exactly the same when I put my glasses on.

Thanks for the comments guys. This is the universe, where black holes meet antimatter and spit out wine into a glass. A great demigod appeared, drank the wine, and the rest I will leave to your imagination ;)

Yellow SC Trees. Experiment with Nikon 1 v2. Not the universe, but pleasing, I think.

Quite pleasing. I like how you isolated a small section and made it come to life. What shutter speed did you use?

So you bought a V2? My brother had the V1. I tried and really liked how quick and versatile the camera was.

My universe was wine at the bottom of a glass. Of course, I had to drink most of it first!

Why not take inspiration from Van Gogh.

I've had the v2 for a few years and like having a camera held to my face, though not the EVF lag. I take it whenever I don't want the heavy 850 kit or want a low profile camera that does acceptably well, esp with super resolution or Gigapixel, but this is ~10x15 inches, plenty for online posting. Exp: 1/30 sec, f/16, ISO 160, @100 mm. We'd had enough wine the night before, so my universe was a little wobbly ;)

Well this is interesting. You really have to whip the camera around to get a blur at 1/30. I generally shoot at between 1/8 to 1/4 of sec. I occasionally do go outside those parameters when I think I may want a more soft or blurry effect.

That is my experience as well, but at 100 mm (270 mm equivalent), it works quite nicely to leverage a telephoto in this way.

I don't know what happened. My time tunnel started oscillating and dividing like a cell. Guess I won't be using it until Dr. Who is able to diagnose it.

I think you have a highly artistic gremlin living inside your lens.

Theoretically, I think that is what it looks like as you approach the event horizon of a black hole. Looks like you turned back just in time, or we wouldn't be seeing this.

I really like your Van Gogh inspiration, too; it's gorgeous.
