Hey everyone - it's been a while since I posted anything...seems like my free time has gone down the toilet. The good news is I got a Composer for Christmas!
These were my first shots with it.
All shot with a Canon 40d and a mixture of doublet, plastic, and pinhole/zone plate.

Cheers!

The body of this aRt tends to be good ......and the Composing does it justice ......my fav of the group would be number five because the treatment is kewl :)

It may have "scene" better days though.....

Nice series, I like the look of the last 3 which I am assuming that they were done with the pinhole/zone plate?

Great work. I'm more drawn to #2. love the interplay between the distorted and mirrored reality.

Hey - thanks everyone for checking them out!

BearWooodsDavid - numbers 5 & 6 were with the zone plate - interesting thing about number 5 is that it was my first attempt with the zone plate and I had no idea what I was doing as far as the light meter. It actually saved as a completely black picture from the camera; no light. It took some serious manipulating with levels in PS to even give it some sort of life. Hence why I chose the antique treatment for that one since it already had a ton of digital noise and artifacts. Num 1 & 3, shot with the plastic, 2 & 4 the doublet and the last one was shot with the pinhole.

Thanks again everyone!

#2 is very cleverly done and the treatment on #5 is terrific.
