Thanks to Fleetwood Mac for the inspiration- one of their best.

The original.

Sunset on the Cornwall Canal, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
March 10, 2010

This is an HDR image, composed of 5 different exposures of the same scene, -1.3 ev to + 1.3 ev and processed in Essential HDR. Then it was resized, mirrored multiple times (about 68) in PSE. Polar Cordinates filter applied. Hue and saturation played with to boost the yellow and red highlights. Finally, I added a centre spotlight effect.

Sony Alpha 700, Sigma 28 to 300 at 28mm
iso 100, spot metered, aperture priority F13.0, various shutter speeds.

In love with Ma Nature! Always have been, always will be. Let’s keep her safe, eh?

    Beautiful Work! Great image that moves when you stare at it! Instant fav!

  • Many thanks! Appreciate you taking the time to stop by and add your kind words of support. And thanks, too, for the compliment of the “favourite”! That illusion of movement is a little disconcerting, isn’t it?
