Absolutely.

Even easier.

I'm starting to think this could work as a challenge after all.

Edit: Out of curiosity, would this pass as standard editing?

Brilliant.

I just did a rushed edit on one of my photos. This was the result:

Handheld series = crude misalignment = possibly interesting effect (mostly at the bottom --- clouds were uncooperative) ...

Paul, your take on it was *exactly* the effect I was imagining when I mentioned moving clouds. The precipitation streamers were the icing on top. They really gave it that "charged-up" look. We've had literally nothing but completely flat gray cloud cover here for days. We've gotten more than 4 inches of rain in the past two and a half days, and it is still raining off and on.

Holy cats, that is freaky!

It helps to have some static (sic) elements in the composition to help with the alignment and to compare with the moving parts. These were taken on a tripod maybe 10-15 seconds apart (the clouds were moving fast) so re-alignment was unnecessary -- I just grabbed various channels from the three shots and combined them in a few (not all!) combinations ...

It took me a while to find out how to do the processing in Photoshop CS5, but with a bit of help from Google, I eventually worked it out.

Now to find something decent to try it on.

Very cool, but... it makes me think that it's a 3D image and I don't have the 3D glasses.

I'm pretty sure this is related to the way they make 3D images -- I have some of the glasses somewhere; I'll try and check it out.

No need to RETRACT it :-) Someone (you) should start a side challenge to get folks interested; THAT might generate more interest as more people gave it a try out of sheer need-to-do-something-today-ness...

You rang?

I found the effect to be surprisingly subtle ...

I found the effect to be surprisingly subtle ... I've been unable to take a decent picture of my neighbor's young red maple tree because the slightest wind current makes its leaves flutter wildly; I figured that was an advantage in this case.

I took three quick handheld snaps, crudely aligned them, and arbitrarily snagged one channel from each to make the composite. I've posted the resized base image, resized composite, cropped, resized and sharpened composite, and a composite with tone curve and saturation "enhancements".[

The advantage of a side challenge for a strange technique is folks can experiment on the technique without worrying if their results are "artistically" worthwhile, thereby gaining facility with said technique in case the challenge ever does show up, which it might :-) You never know :-)

Some really unusual effects. Must admit, I had never heard of this technique before. FWIW, really simple to do with digital:
- Take three relatively rapid exposures
- Import into Ps as a stack (if shot handheld, can tell Ps to auto-align)
- Change as desired to use one each of the images as the R, G and B channels; unlike the film-based technique, you can choose which image becomes which channel, and change them later if you wish.

Side challenge? Are those even done anymore? Haven't seen one in a while (could have missed it I suppose).

Something Rene Hipken did before?
(btw, he is the one that introduced me to DPC back in 2003)

By definition this can't be standard editing. By choice I'm not at all interested.
