    Absolutely super shot, Graham, really good stuff. How does it look rotated 90 degrees clockwise? Adrian

      Thanks Adrian. I’ve tried looking at the shot in both orientations – slightly prefer it as it is but I can see that it could work both ways.

    Nice effect – I love how bright red the leaves are 🙂

      Thank you Helen – I increased the colour saturation and contrast in Photoshop but the leaves were remarkably red to start with.

      Thanks Nigel. I’m fond (perhaps a little over-fond) of this technique). Sometimes my camera must feel very dizzy!

    Great fun here – and a nice result. How do you shoot it?!

      Thanks Truels – just set a slow shutter speed and spin the camera! Unpredictable and there is an element of chance in getting the shutter speed right – but when it works it’s nice.

    Love this technique and this is a great photo. The swirling is beautiful.

      Thanks Katie. It’s a nice technique which I use often.

    Hi Graham, such a great picture, a slight feeling of vertigo, immediately eye-catching and impressionistic!
