About the Image(s)

I took this photo Zooming out of a focus on water creek. In the center a small waterfall and rocks. In foreground we can see a plant and her leaves. I thought this could be an artistic entry.

Very unique photo. One is pulled into the scene. Very creative. One question, did you try zooming in. if so did it change the scene any?   Posted: 10/07/2020 07:53:39

Thank you Dave. No, I di not try zooming in, but if I did, certainly the reverse would have happened.   Posted: 10/07/2020 09:58:16

Giuseppe, this clever technique you used is very successful. I get the feel of the original scene very well, but receive the emotional interpretation of the zooming.
To address Dave's question, you said you zoomed out from a focus on the creek, so you had a short interval at close range in focus, then the rest of the exposure was constantly zoomed.
Dave, that means in the reverse, the brief sharp focus would have been on the wide angle view, and then the zooming would take place. So the effects would be somewhat different. It would be worth an experiment if you feel like doing it and reporting to your group (and me?).   Posted: 10/12/2020 16:28:27

Thank you Steve, you and Dave are stimulating my curiosity. I think I'll take that picture reversing the procedure. I'll keep you posted.   Posted: 10/12/2020 17:40:19

So I went to the same spot, but I did not find the same subject, the water running through the creek had been stopped, so I found a place near by. I did both the zoom in and the zoom out. You guys judge. My preference is the zoom out.   Posted: 10/13/2020 19:43:50

My preference is the zoom in one...very strong action...It almost looks like a water fountain in this one...Love it...AS to your original above...I feel it's a bit too busy...and centered.
However, having done this technique many times myself I know that it isn't easy to control the "bull's eye" effect...that can only be done by cropping the center out of dead center...   Posted: 10/17/2020 15:16:28

Shirley, that is a water fountain. I didn't crop for best look, because I just wanted to show the difference.   Posted: 10/17/2020 16:47:23

great experiment. thanks... your first image of the waterfall my first impression I saw 'Speed'. with your two second tries I really like both of these images. I can see the water fountain in both. interesting to see how the colors are displayed in both versions. will definitely try playing with this technique. thanks   Posted: 10/18/2020 11:00:24

Not sure that I can cope with the effect of the image - very striking, but perhaps not easy on the eye/ I do like the effect of the zoom in on the two extra images.   Posted: 10/21/2020 09:21:28
