    OK, my LAST picture post for the week, I promise :Clown:

    Just a few that don't fit well elsewhere (with good reason!) :eek:

    I like the quadrangle; just when I think I've figured out what's going on in the ocular disconnect, I see something else that doesnt quite fit. It makes me wonder if the optometrist gave me someone else's glasses.

    Hehehehe. Yes well, that's a composite of two very shallow DOF shots. I just couldn't resist when I saw that I shot it with two different focus points. I'm totally in love with shooting primes with shallow DOF.

    Thanks for the compliments,Bob!

    I eventually decided that it must be a composite, but I still kept finding little areas that didn't seem to be part of either. You must have used a gradient to confuse. In any case, it's a fun image. [We sometimes get too serious.]

    Hi Bob...

    Actually, the defocus charictartistics of the 135mm F/2 DC are all it took. I was trying to decide if I even liked either image, close focus or far, then it hit me as I was playing with them to do a composite. Just a quick swipe of the healing brush in CS2, and it was done. I totally love that lens, as it has characteristics that other optics just don't have - not always the right lens to use, but it's sharp as a tack, and works well in a lot of situations. It also worked out quite well for party fog too :rolleyes:

    Thanks Hans!
     
  8. The second is my favorite but the last one is them most unique. My compliments on seeing the irony of it.
     
  9. i love the disharmony between the in focus areas and out of focus areas of that last shot. It's almost like a visual conflict.
     
  10. Nice series but for me Influx is the number 1.

    Thanks for sharing.
     
  11. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! A master shot!
    Cheers
