WARNING - Looking at this image may cause strange effects.
;)
This is the same kaleidoscope image from yesterday with a "radial blur - twirl" effect added.
Now do you think I spent too much time in the darkroom?

Chicago - Illinois - USA

Digital Darkroom

Comments welcome and appreciated!

You can never spend too much time in the 'darkroom' if you keep coming up with images such as these.
WOW, my eyes hurt!!!

No, I think you should STAY in there until you turn out about 100 more of these beauties! You are rocking with these, Mike!

Thanks for the warning, Mike! I feel dizzy looking too long. Interesting to see how much you can come up with from that clock tower.

Mike, your stuff keeps getting better and better. I really love all your recent images! Everytime I see your stuff from downtown I get homesick! What suburb are you in? I grew up in Brookfield. Great stuff! Larry
