Nice capture, Eddie. The energy and colours are clearly displayed.

I take it you're using a (post processing) filter that I saw a little while ago on another post here on the forums.

As with the other photo, it took me a few seconds (maybe 6) to realise that. It's a very interesting effect.

Cheers.

Paul

Yes Paul, I do use a filter of sorts I learned quite by accident. A few back I was sitting with camera in hand contemplating....often while my mind is off on its own I've this habit of fiddling with my nose. I had no idea, when a subject came into focus....that I had some residual left over from that fiddling, and it found itself upon my lens. When I got home and began to view the shots, I noticed they all sported the same effect. I pulled the lens cap and investigated.....YEP, smeared all about it was booger juice. I may look funny to some who view my picking and smearing as a bit odd, but I truly believe I have killed two stones with one bird with this discovery, and, it gives a new meaning to the question when posed, "Which picture would you pick?"

Now that my secret is out, I bet Bynx will really perfect the technique.....have you seen the beak that guy sports?

To be honest, Ive never considered blowing my nose on the lens to improve my photo's quality. While it gives food for thought I think I will just do it the old fashioned way. Booger juice not withstanding. And making fun of another members nose is not allowed according to Rule #4, subsection XVIII, Paragraph 8.

Nice nose job. That damned Adobe software strips so much info out of exif data that it drives me crazy. What lens did you use, and at what 35mm-equivalent focal length? Inquiring minds want to know...

You guys crack me up, eddie & bynx

Well... I think I must take up investigating such a booger filter, and try with my latest lens - the 15-85mm Canon. Do I need a certain size nose for a 72mm filter thread? Or does one size fit all? Or can I use my handkerchief as a step-up or step-down adapter between different lens sizes? I have 2x72mm filter size lenses, 2x58mm, 1x52mm and 1x77mm.

Now before I get kicked out of Steve's Digicams forums for contravening Rule #4, subsection XVIII, Paragraph 8 of the by-laws, unless I can say that my nose was under intense pressure -and it just succomb to the natural laws of biology - so it really wasn't my typing fingers' fault.... please be nice to them.

Paul

Interesting shot Eddie....with a definitely interesting technique. (how do you keep the flys off?)

I think I'll stay with Vaseline.
