Sculptures by the Sea - 2017

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

Hi Gerry.

Now you're messing with us.

Well, me, at any rate. What's going on here? An accomplice?

The blue misty stuff is just EL wire which is waved around during the long exposure, the tricky bit is just to do it in a coherent manner to create a nice effect rather than just a mess of colour :)

The figures are generated using a Pixel stick, I won one of these last year, it's a pretty cool device. Basically you can program your own pictures onto and then by moving the stick in a horizontal fashion, like wiping your windscreen on your car with one of those carwash thingys...it creates the image in light and whilst the camera is in long exposure it captures the resultant image. The pixel stick is also handy as a light source, it can create rainbows etc :)

Thanks, Gerry.

Just what I needed to know. Very cool device, and a very creative use of it. Well done. I'm in awe.
