Ooohh... It's almost like a Jeep grill.
Kind of like it got some spinach stuck in its teeth?
...Can't say my Jeep has never had any vegetation stuck in it's teeth.
Works for me.
nice. but im not sure about the crop.
I find it perfect like that
So, no crop circles?
Thanks. I'm trying to get sort of an illusion out of it.
What now: Might be just Bjorkfiend - or might (indeed) be looming down on the photographer?
Anyhow: a) what a find! I can't say I've ever seen anything like this before, starting with the trees, and continued with their arrangement and all and b) I really like how the sky becomes almost black towards the top, but c) I don't understand how the clouds could become this way, what gave them this very peculiar blur?
I've been thinking about this for some time now and finally got some incentive to give it a shot. I've been trying to figure out a way to make a better effect out of, or exagerate, what happens to quickly moving clouds during multiple exposures. This shot is a three exposure HDR taken with a wide angle (10mm) lens. I tilted the lens forward to increase distorion as much as possible. Ok, so I process the exposures, and convert to black and white. Next I corrected the lens distortion which helped to blend the clouds a touch. After that I masked the clouds and used a gaussian blur. Not much to it.
Besides the effect of the clouds moving quickly by, the trees are dead still. The contrast between the sky and the background behind the trees (white dry lakebed with haze and deep blue sky above) was designed to play a trick on the initial viewing, making the white parts look like the objects rather than the spaces between them. Get the viewer to do a second take on it.
