Taken with Drebel, Canon 50mm 1.8. I think this created a nice foggy, dreary effect. Comments welcome.

In the "filtered" shot there is enough of a breeze that it makes it look like it's just pouring rain out there. Then the unfiltered shot is windless. Makes it look like you're cheating! :blah: Nice idea. (the swatter, not the cheating)

Yea, that's funny...now that you mention it, there is a breeze in the filter shot. I see what you're saying. Purely coincidental though. I don't think I am smart enough to plan that one

Great idea and well executed. You got me to thinking about what it would look like if you dipped that flyswatter or other similar item into a soap solution and then shoot through the resulting soap film in the holes. I tried some preliminary experiments and ended up with a soapy mess:? Maybe I'll try again this week.

Have you ever tried to use a stocking? That's a very common way to get similar effect.
