Train's a comin' by
All my ideas for this challenge have been epic failures, lol. Really highlights for me how much I still have to learn about the xt2 and Affinity. I’m posting tonights attempt because even though it’s not exactly what I wanted it’s still kind of cool. For the life of me I could not get all 3 if him to show fully using any of the Affinity merge tools. Been searching tutorials for an hour and still can’t make it work.
This earlier attempt to use a longish exposure to show action was also a failure. Had to give up on this project for tonight as I’m afraid to give the dog any more treats...
5. clock - radial blur
According to Monty Python.....and now for something completely different.
I had the idea to make a radial blur effect on the dial of attached alarm clock (more than 100 years old heirloom, but without much value, from my wife), but the final result wasn't very interesting.

By shifting some layers and also making a 'negative' layer I got a completely different (artsy) image with "action" still in a way as the starting point.

Adding the negative image to that really made this image stand out. The contrast is great.
6. leftover Merlot - zoom blur-effect
Fuji XE-1 + Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm lens
Took me hours to get the glass right and a few more for the blur-effect, which didn't
work very well, transparant glass on a white background, so find an alternative.

I love everything about this...a beautiful render, and worth the time it took. Nominated November POTM.
Nominated, WOW...thank you very much!
Came up with this last night while waiting for my flight in the Phoenix airport.

7. street lightning at 23:34 hours - ICM effect
Last night I made 3 pictures with 3 different camera movements, all from the same position.
Merged these 3 pictures in PaintNet.
(it's the same effect as creating a 'double exposure' with a camera, only this method is much easier/faster)
