267. What Do You See?

by Jarvo J September. 24, 2010 4407 views

Last week I posted a smoke photo, but I wasn't particularly over the moon about it. I asked for suggestions and was pleased that so many people offered advice. Thank you all.

Thanks especially to my friend Juan jrregaldie [photoblog.com] who posted links to a couple of vids on youtube. From these I have used Gavin Hoey's method to take these shots, then used Terry Watson's ideas on post processing.

I think I can improve on these, particularly by using a narrower aperture to get sharper shots, but I am quite pleased for a first attempt and I think I'll have a lot of fun doing more of them.

Thanks all!

After posting the first three pictures, I thought #1 looked like it contained the face of a sinister pig, so I adapted it a little.

In #2 I see the most fantastic, beautiful, amazing, wonderful, perfect color that exists!! But that is just my impression, and in my mind that is the only right impression!!

I just see outsize genitals, pillar boxes, piston engines, bananas and naked Rubenesque Eskimos riding giraffes... Why doesn't anyone else?

On a less disturbed level, I really like their subtlety, especially in No. 2, which went into my favourites.

The last one reminds me of a bull's head.
