  • @garikapati thanks! This was my first long exposure shot, I was going for the silky waterfall look. – Jin May 26 '11 at 8:34

The Big Bang

The Big Bang

Pepsi bubbles taken with a reversed 50mm lens, backlit with an LED reading light. Colors and contrast tweaked and a suggestion of light rays added in Photoshop.

Bigger version viewable here.

  • nice! btw, what is a reversed lens? – Lazer May 25 '11 at 13:37

    A lens taken off, turned around, and attached to the camera with a reversing ring by the filter screw-thread. It lets you get super-close to your subject but you lose metering and focusing - you just move the camera closer or further away to focus. A reversing ring costs about $20 - a lot less than a macro lens. Or you can just hold the lens against the camera, but that's a pain in the neck. – ElendilTheTall May 25 '11 at 15:00

Taken on the high road just outside my flat. On tripod, 30s exposure, f/16. White balence is quite off, but I quite like the warm feel it gives this shot.

    That's a nice shot, but try fixing the horizon - the image is rotated to the right in 2-3 degrees. A reference can be the pole of the traffic sign, or the walls of the buildings on the left. – ysap May 24 '11 at 0:13
