Persistence
Camera: K10D Photo Location: High Park ISO: 100 
Posted By: JMR, 10-26-2010, 02:58 PM

Years ago I saw an image which looked like a painting (now more commonplace) and the photographer said that he took it on one frame (film) at a slow shutter speed while the wind was blowing. I tried in vain to produce similar results, but always ended up with poor to mediocre images. I could never produce what I really wanted in the camera with any consistent results. Finally, with the onset of multiple exposure capability and the camera doing all the proper exposure calculations, I was able to produce more images with more consistent results. Yesterday, at High Park in Toronto, everything came together, autumn, gusting winds, colour and good light, and this is the result. The irony is, that this not a maple tree, but a Japanese Cherry from that now famous cherry lane hill at High Park where, justifiably hundreds come in Spring to see the breathtaking blossoms.

Edit:
Rather than start a new thread, I am posting a few more from my recent autumn outings. This time, camera movement or water movement is the basis of the image.

It came together, indeed, my friend. This is exceptionally well done; I enjoyed how you maneuvered your thinking and vision as much as the photo itself . . . . . almost.

Impressive for sure.

Thank you Mel and Jer.

By all means Mel, give it try. Many will not look good and will appear more blurry than painterly. But keep trying and trigger the shutter only when the wind is blowing. After achieving focus, turn off autofocus to retain sharpness in the areas where the wind is not affecting the subject.

I added four more, mostly camera movement and water movement.

JMR, I have tried this a couple of times and can never come up with the interesting images you post. I really like the second one and the last one. Great to see you posting again. JIMBO

Gee, I'm glad I looked at this thread again - the additions are wonderful; the tree trunks are exceptionally cool to my eye.

Thanks everyone. I do take regular images, but I prefer experimenting. At least for now.

Persistent did pay off. I would certainly enjoy having all of them (except maybe the second one) hanging on my wall. Congrats.
