I'm not sure that this is quite as effective as yesterday's, and I'm sure that it would definitely be better as a print than at this resolution, but I do like it nonetheless.
hmm.. I like this one better.. want to keep staring at it.. looks like a painting.
Cool! I think I prefer this too, maybe because the pier looks a little more defined than I might expect from the pinhole. I like the subtle colours too.
Yay another pinhole shot.
Yeah its not bad.
The mood captured is more apparent and better delivered in the previous pinhole shot, but the effect is still as beautiful.
Great use of an innovative technique. It's interesting to note that such a simple setup is capable of producing such varied results - today's image seems very dreamlike, wheras yesterdays definitely had a much more abstract feel to it. (Of course I'm assuming that the processing done served to compliment the underlying "feel" of each image. Great work.)
definitally prefer the previous shot...
have you considered making a small pinhole film camera?? you know the ones! where you use the toilet roll tube and a pencil for winding the film and some sort of elastic band or something???
Davis I agree with what you said yesterday about the two aspects of phtography. The fiirst one that is documenting the world is the kind of photography fit for purposes like newspapers, record books, instruction manuals and the other form of photography s where we are aloowed more creative freedom and just like any other art, what we do is highly subjective. What may look like a masterpiece to one may look like a iece of crap to another. Personally I prefer these ind of shots because I have always had this curiosity in my mind about how it woul have felt had I been there.
This photograph gives me the sense that I am in a dream. Great work!
I like this one more... I keep looking at this waiting for my eyes to focus...
I don't know about this one, but I can easily see the idea :-)
i think i prefer this one cant stop lookin at it
no not as good, figures are too small and mesh with the pier too much
Hi Dave, I like these blurred images, but I prefer the yesterday one: very confused, but with simple and dark and "abolutes" shapes. Today's shot has too much details everywhere that my eyes try to focus; and I wonder if darkening the two walking figures could help to create an attention focus point. I probably guess that the "paint effect" is more effective on the printed version.
On reflection I think that I probably need a slightly smaller aperture for this sort of shot. The one I'm using has a diameter of 0.2mm, which is ok for shots like yesterday's, and a few more that I have in mind, but I think that it's probably just a bit too blurry in this instance.
I like these shots, makes them look like old paintings
This is a very interesting effect, yet you can make out certain details.
Looks out of focus - better buy a new lens...
i actually prefer this one over the other one. it almost looks like you took it through a screen door as well. and i could see how it would be very interesting if someone took this as a source file and actually painted it.
i also really dig the design of your blog. there are a lot of nice little touches.
i realized i wasn't that helpful with why i like this one better. i like that there are forms you can just make out but are beyond your grasp. and i like that there are figures. i feel like this photo is telling a story (or that it's just beyond reach the story of what's going on here) which i find intriguing.
hm. i would have edited the previous comment to include this but i guess i can't do that. so apologies for double posting comments.
