Pine play

PinesMore play; a composite of multiple hand-held photos of a small stand of pines at the end of No. 1 Line.

Whilst I can appreciate the cleverness of this I find it uncomfortable. I wonder if this is an age 'thing'? Do I need to see an optician?

Emma said...

I really like it. It's slightly mysterious.

RR, this sort of manipulated photo tends to polarise opinions. Some people like these kinds of photos, others don't. I doubt it's strongly correlated with age, though.

Emma, I think that's one of the qualities of these sorts of photos. Something about a hint of sharp detail; the idea that something's being glimpsed.

I appreciate how this photo illustrates the illusion built into photography (and life!). So easy to forget.

Good point, Michael. Everything's filtered, and usually it can be hard, sometimes impossible, to see the filters.

Isn't it interesting about filters? Even our eyes are filters, and yet we tend to forget that we don't see the world as it really is. Our eyes are not even particularly good eyes!

How exactly do you do this method, Pete? Do you use HDR software?
