Hi Katherine,

Thanks for your comments. This is not done in Photoshop as such, except I have used Photoshop to overlay 8 different exposures where after each exposure I have rotated the camera a notch to create the twirl effect. This could also be done with a normal film camera on set to multiple exposure mode.

Cheers,
Thomas

Congratulations Thomas! A well deserved award for a very nice image! Sorry for the slow response, somehow I didn't see it until looking through the winners this second time.

Great job! I've tried some similar shots based on reading Freeman Patterson's Photo Impressionism, but they didn't come out this great!
