This is probably the wrong forum for this shot, but...

Two-second exposure of the Detroit skyline... set the timer, waited for the shutter, then zoomed. I'm quite pleased with this first attempt.

Comments are welcome.

Here is a shot from a few moments before without the zoom effect.

Both shots are nice, but I especially like the ZOOM.

I really like the zoom effect. I wonder if a bit of cropping would increase the effect even more?

Thanks folks,

This was my first attempt with this technique and I am quite pleased with the results. There are a number of things I might try differently next time, but that is for another day. (Simon, I'll try a cropped version... something to think about)

Thanks again for the encouragement.

Cheers,

Woow, that zoom effect reminds me of the mathematical perspective study of a renaissance painter..Well done, Tom.
