Funhouse Mirror x ~64

Comments made by the photographer

Submitter's name: Moose
Title: Funhouse Mirror x ~64
Camera: OM-4
Lens: Tamron 28-200mm asph f3.8-5.6 at 200mm
Exposure: Not recorded, likely about 1/1000 @ f16
Film used: Kodak Supra 400
Technical information: Scanned at 2720dpi on a Canoscan FS2710.
Cropped to about 16% of the full frame area to get the effect I wanted. The resulting angle of view is about that of a 500mm lens. A side benefit of the cropping is that the pincusion distortion of this lens at 200mm is hardly seen in the central portion of the frame.
Subject information: Building reflected in building. The particularly pillow-concave and inconsistent panes, combined with the relatively busy facade of the reflected apartment building, with different drapes, etc., gives a particularly pleasing array of reflections. I especially like the various 'fish faces' and the pairs of eyes in adjacent panes.

Comment left by: Jim McBride (jnmcbr@srv.net) This is wild. I like it.

Comment left by: Mike Butler (no e-mail specified) I like this effect, the picture is striking, but now I am curious to see the the other 84% of the picture.

It is not always obvious to me when a crop is needed. What helps you decide how and when to crop?

Comment left by: Andrew Wendelborn (no e-mail specified) Looks as if it's melting away. Interesting effect.

Comment left by: Chris Barker (ftog at threeshoes.co.uk) Good spot and well cropped. The colours and the shapes make this interesting.
