I love this shot ( or shots) it is very original(i am sheltered) and after you read that all these different shots were used to make the entire picture thats where the impact is. Impact when you start looking at the whole thing as well. I dont find that i am speechless too often but this one floored me.
Tne sun glint in the corner looking over the whole waterscape, and the curve of the water, its really a great picture.
This is not a criticism, but am curious if you tried it with it curving down...just interested is all. Great idea!

This is lovely. Twenty three images impresses me quite a bit, since well, I don't know how to combine two =P.

That being said, I like the way you caught it bending down the way you did, it adds a lovely sense of where you're standing for the photo. Also, I like the reflection, the still water adds greatly to this piece.

I do have a few suggestions, first, toward the bottom it appears like you've cut off the water and the sidewalk disappears. I think maybe if you had put that into it as well, it'd add a more complete feel on the bottom.

Other than that, I don't really have much more. I liike the way the rays come down so finely from the clouds. In a way, it seems like it over exposed a little too much in the surrounding clouds. I do like the that clouds are a little darker in this piece, and how fluffy they are. Also, the different colors throughout in the trees is quite appealing as well. Nice photo.

Wow.... How do you get it curved like that? I'm an aspiring film photographer and I'd love some tips.
Reply

BiOzZ Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
well this one was actually 23 individual images combined in to one giving a 120* view
you can accomplish the same thing with a fisheye lens ... this is what i fell in love with [link] (if your looking for a camera i highly suggest a Nikon ... if you want to do film also i suggest the D7000 with video firmware upgrade)
here is one i took with that lens [link] ... it produces a 180*x120* picture on a 1.2X crop camera (28mm aka nikon DX format) ... its great for video and panoramas and my fav, timelapses [link]

Wow. That's so cool I have the nikon FG. *points to my icon* (that's my actual camera) When I said film I mean, 35 mm. Like Black an white style I love it like that. I just can't believe how cool fisheye looks. I can't seem to take any good pictures unless its of people. Do you think the fisheye would still work with people?

BiOzZ Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
ahhhh okay

yeah i love nikon my self .... but im in the digital age XD ... i use a D7000 and a D90 here and a D300s and D3x for professional shoots

the fisheye lens does a very strange effect to faces and cna give a real punch to an image but you have to get the lens really really chose (like literally half an inch from touching there face) and you need to use extension rings to get it in focus) but it can really add a punch to portrats
you can also go below people and make them look really tall or above

its GREAT for sports and shooting inside of buildings and doing panoramics

its an artistic lens with loads of possibilities [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

and for $300 you really cant go wrong

but the lens is made for a 1.2X crop lens so on a 35mm vegging will occur

Wow.... So I want a digital camera too but I enjoy the art of how it takes to actually take a real picture so that's why I do film. I can't be spending no $1000 on a camera so what's the best one I can get for a cheap price. Also, will my lens (because I love it so much) work on the digital if its a nikon? It just wont be auto focus right?

you can carry that on with digital photography also

for me the art is in the post process
like with my droplet photos .. ill spend an hour each in photoshop and lightroom editing them sometimes pixel by pixel

And how did you do the water drop pictures? I was thinking of trying that with the roll of film I have in my camera now.

the droplets hitting droplets is hard ... i used a custom rig (mine [link] ) but the regular droplet shots you need just a flash and quick reaction time

hey, awesome work! Well i'm a newbie on photography and I was wondering.. how do you merge images? do you create different exposures from a single raw file? do you use bracketing?
Reply
:iconbiozz:
BiOzZ Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
first what idid is take the 23 images in to photoshop CS4 and uses "photo merge" under File>Automate but this could have been done in microsoft ICE if you dont have CS4
i than exported the panorama in to lightroom 2.5 in 16 bit TIFF format and i literally painted the sky darker and the ground brighter to create this dynamic range

i dont know of any free software that can do what lightroom does but its only $300

i have photoshop CS5 and i use acdsee pro because lightroom wasnt really working on my pc (pirating has its faults lol). But the problem is that i cant find any merge option on ps..

BiOzZ Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
haha yeah pirating can do that

if you have NEF installed on your computer you can use Microsoft ICE [link] or if you dont have a problem with either paying a bit or pirating PTGUI works wonders but its a bit more complicated but you get so much more control [link]
it even has basic HDR functions

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of camera did you use and is the camera expensive? Also, is it easy to use?
