I was wandering around the Bridges area (Latitude: 40.50925578 Longitude: -74.72741604)(see the 3 bridges?) of Neshanic/Branchburg today working on HDR shots for a feature for PC Photo Magazine and couldn't resist experimenting with the ZP/PH optic...

The first shot is a single shot with the zone plate, the 2nd is an merger with the Pinhole and #3 is single-shot with the pinhole :)

Yeah, I'm happy to have free time in daylight!

Jack,


Nice series. #1 is my favorite, though I do like them all.

Three nice images, Jack. I also like #2 best, as it looks like it could be an illustration from a book that's over 100 years old.

I was never interested in the zone plate or pinhole optics until I saw these images.

Thanks for posting them.

Lensbabies make you think.

Great set - the second is especially interesting.

Thanks folks. I had a lot of fun with this set...

The pinhole is just so cool, and combining the dreamy feel of the pinhole with the intensity possible with HDR seems to be a winning combo so far!

Hi Jack,

The first and the third are very interesting. I like the compositions and how the effect works with the lines of the bridges.

Thanks for posting them.

Thanks Sam...it's pretty much par for the course that whatever/wherever I'm shooting these days a good bit of time is spent with some Lensbaby combo.

These are really nice, Jack. The first is a great example of what you are talking about, combining the pinhole and HDR.
It really does add to the dreamy feel.
I was excited when the 3G came out because Lensbabied HDR images was a more viable idea. Now with the Composer and all the cool new lenses, the possibilities are even greater.
Thanks for sharing.

Peace and Happiness
AJ
