About your lens on the Digital Rebel XT (Tamron AF 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 LD Aspherical IF Super II for Canon): I have this same lens on a Canon Elan 7E, which I thought could only be used on the Canon film cameras, but you used it with fantastic results. No error message codes or anything from using it? Would really like to know. Thank you so much!!

This reminds me of something I tried once. ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/465/thumb/308519.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/465/thumb/308519.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' I hope your photo does better.

Love the apparent suspension of the marbles, and the subdued tones work well with the illusion.

Nice use of motion blur. I really like this as an abstract, a notecard, or a print. Really nice.

I wonder how you did this one. It looks like a long exposure, because the marbles seem to be transparent. makes me think and that is a good thing :)

interesting one..

Very interesting! Definitely holds your attention while trying to figure out how it's done.

Clever capture-- I like the motion blur and overall colors, though a bit noisy on the bottom--I think it works

Wow - are those reflected or under water...I can't tell. Either way, I like the effect.

weird effect. a bit noisy and could use a little more contrast i think but very clever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really hope others see this as art ! The faded look gives this a floating almost hot air balloon feeling. This is REALLY a nice photo with everything (all the rules we hate but work)working together nicely ! 9

Beautiful colors

A unique photograph with lots of visual info for the eye to study, and without being too busy. Very nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the composition and the feeling the image portrays. The only way I think the image could be improved would be to remove the vertical lines that are semi-transparent. I'm not sure if that's even possible with whatever setup you used. Overall, great image.

This is fun in an abstract way. Question. What's up with the lines? Without those this would be a stronger entry IMO. Bump the contrast a little and run some neat image...???

that's quite impressive, not sure how you did this, but it looks great

A lift in contrast neede in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 03:05:50 AM
I really like this.
It really has dynamism / sense of movement.
Looking forward to your notes on ho you did this.
