    I was in the Columbia River Gorge on the old highway and found this perfect spot to take a long exposure during the morning sun and zoom during the shot.

    This is the result. Took several others but this one turned out better. Its a neat effect and will be fun to try at night.

    It would have been cooler if the center of the zoom was aimed at the end of the road. My eye wants to follow the road but is distracted by the zoom thing. Cool picture though.

    totally cool. Hope you don't mind if I steal your idea, and try this too. Maybe in B&W...and post. I'll credit you for the idea...

    Very nice job. The first time I tried one of these was with a k-1000. Always a good feeling to achieve something like this without relying on software. ;)

    Cool shot. I've heard about this effect, but never saw such a good realization.

    It is pretty cool to do and has the effect of extreem light shining through. Im looking for other settings to use.

    My question is this. Using a long exposure, and zooming the lens at the same time, can this be done with a film camera. I can't see how I could do it without moving the whole tripod around causing a blurred mess.
    Can this be done with film?

    Thanks, and again, great shot, I love it.

    Yes, this effect can be done with film or with a digital camera. One of the easiest things to do is to begin at the telephoto end of the zoom range, and then zoom to the shorter focal lengths. It's one way to add a little bit of excitement to otherwise static trees.

    I've got to say, that is so cool! Never, ever dawned on me to try it. I'm going to take a film camera out today, and shoot some color and B&W, using this tecnique.

    Thanks for sharing,

    For my shot I posted, I used a ND filter for daylight long exposure of about 5sec and in order to keep the road in decent exposure I started the exposure in wide for about one second then zoomed in the back out again. A very sturdy tripod is a must and a gentle hand with the zoom too. I also aimed this one right at the sun for the light effect coming through the trees.
