Not much in the way of commentary today. The top image is a 360-degree panorama of the Ironforge Airfield showing some extreme distortion. The effect is quite interesting, and more than a little on the bizarre side.
The second image answers the question I posed yesterday. This is the source image for Pines #4 that I posted yesterday. This image is natural - all the blurring and streaking was done in the camera. The only alterations were the cropping (square, for the win) and colour correction. I love this image in it's raw form, and each adjustment I made was more and more exciting. You can always tell when you've got a really strong image when it can work in multiple different ways and formats.
Angelya over at Revive and Rejuvenate has come up with another Challenge that I, as a Photographer and self-styled Visual Artist, am very excited about. It's IntPiPoMo, or International Picture Posting Month. As a picture is worth 1,000 words, the goal for this challenge is to post 50 pictures during the month of November. I will be posting 25 Images of Azeroth and 25 photographs or art projects that I have been working on personally (and no baby photos, sorry ladies). As well, I will be posting commentary and context with each image.
