Never test a new macro lens when the wind is blowing!

Consider it a learning experience. Thanks for sending me the list of your new toys. I have never tried a Sigma lens. I had a Tamron lens and was very disappointed. I now only buy Canon lens, but am willing to try Sigma.

Du er ivrig på macro nå Rune, artig det. En "helt ny verden" åpner seg.
Du sier at jeg har "øye". Synes ikke det selv egentlig, men en og annen gangen blir det et brukbart komponert bilde ut av det. Ha en fin dag.

I understand you perfectly. On the otherhasnd it's mad a nice eerie image. Call it an arty shot.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I like this. It looks very well designed.

R and J said...

Hm...weird but arty.

To me this represents the curled metal pieces off a metal lathe that is working on brass or bronze.

As for the EXIF information. I don't strip it off.

I think it is stripped when it is stored either at Photobucket or Flyckr.

I looked it up and found it on my computer by using Paint Shop Pro which is a relatively cheap program for photos. I guess if it goes directly from Photobucket to the web like on my blog then that data is somehow stripped away. Lots of people prefer it is stripped away as there is just too much data that a lot of people do not want to share. As for me, I don't care. I don't know, short of a screen shot, how to get a copy of it to you for the Cicada shots.

I also have Photoshop and also Adobe Lightroom which retains everything no matter what I do with it. It is more like working on film photos but I like it because I used to develop and print all of my photos and this sort of reminds me of that.

I am not sure what it is odd about this since I am not that deep into photography BUT I live it! It's like a piece of art.

Good advice.

I read through the comments and Abe Lincoln suggests that the pic is metal turnings from a lathe, I was also thinkg that or perhaps paper strips from the paper shredder?

An odd miss for sure, whether macro or otherwise. :)

Photo Cache said...

Chalk it up to experience, but the end result was not that bad. It's artistic too.

Have a good week.

Gary said...

I like the result - reminiscent of the streaks a lighted firework sparkler makes as you wave it through the air.

Lovely.

Dragonstar said...

Ouch! It's an interesting effect though.

Hi!
Don't know what it is, but I like it! It kind of looks like a one of those whirling wind chimes. Thanks for stopping by my place. Take Care!!

Keep on taking macros in the wind--it makes for amazing art. But what is it? Are you going to tell us eventually?

ChrisJ said...

I like that orange tangle. Did I tell you. we'll be in Norway the last week of May. Looking forward to it.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Well, Rune. I'm curious to know what this is! ;-)

Det er fort gjort å bomme litt med macro objektiv. :)
Begge to er lagd av tre eksponeringer. Vi gikk en tur oppe i høyden i går og da prøvde jeg meg på mine første panorama bilder. Brukte eksporter til PS og lag panorama fra LR og det funket tålig greit det.
Det var motlys så bildene ble så som så.

"Louis" agrees with Babooshka - call it an 'arty shot!'
