Abstract

Recommended Posts

A stack of 16 longer shutter speeds (1/4 of a second or so) taken of the Kamloops Powwow final Grand Entry yesterday. Cropped the top off as it was unneeded space in the concept. Wanted to catch the wonderful colours of grand entry as I had never seen them before.

There are two if you look close :) I also have this one:
I wanted to try this with a different set of images I had taken, but it really did not work the way I had intended, so I tried it on this one. While not exactly what I was after, I do like it and it has given me another idea to try in the future.

Wow, you are right about the colors. How they blend and contrast from point to point is mesmerizing. Almost an emotional experience!

Beautiful!

Thank you Jer :) It is an awe-inspiring sight to witness. All the colours everywhere, but what the image fails to capture is the deep pounding of the drum.

When limas.design highlighted the face I was seeing the bottom of a nose and some lips (where the hat is) with maybe a bit of an ear on the left (on the right-hand side of the "face" as it looks out). I didn't see the hat at all until the later image was given.

I had the same face in my mind. :D

Actually, I've just seen another one.

The first face I saw is the one I pointed out earlier where the hat is the lips and the top of the face is cut off the image.

This new face has the hat as the person's left eye (facing out of the image), there is a "button nose" just below that, with a big bushy white moustache under that with a little bit of the mouth showing through. He looks sleepy. I think this was the one that you marked.

How many more of these darn things are in there I wonder?

Haha, well, there were around 500 dancers in the circle at the time, so undoubtedly you could see many faces. only 4 or 5 though ever appeared to be sharp and that's because the centre group with the flags were standing mostly stationary while the others danced around them as they entered the circle. Using 1/8s shutter speed at 100mm will do that without any stacking involved.
