Don Johnson level-deluxe September 12, 2006

This images looks better blown up, than as a "thumbnail" image. The larger the image, the more beautiful the colors. Nice job. You really are very creative with a computer. #3300858

Chris Budny level-deluxe October 27, 2006

Thank you, folks! I love this image because it showcases just how much varied color is in the west rose window at the cathedral; yet anyone viewing the window in person comes away with the impression that it is mostly blue glass!

Chris Budny level-deluxe October 30, 2006

Thanks, Don! Your in-camera zoom images of the windows at the cathedral inspired me to try the shot that became the source for this... since I can't do zoom-during-exposure, camera-panning was my next best option ;) #3522650

Orig: f/8, 2 Seconds, ISO64, -2ev, Shutter Priority, tripod.
Inspired by Judy Fung's curvy images, This started as an image similar to my "Curtain of Light".
(A camera-motion/panning image.) I first applied Motion Blur in a straight line direction
parallel to the streaks of color, then used the Shear filter with a few curve nodes.
Levels and USM, plus a tighter crop.
