Re the solder, I could maybe see that, but it also took a bite out of the blade at the exact same place. I’m going with spark that was hot enough to melt the blade’s metal for an instant, the spark’s explosive force causing
I’ve often wondered how insects see the world. I’ve seen the ” representations” of a kaleidoscope view because of the multi facets, but do we know how their brains process that information? And how about spiders with their 8 eyes? Should we summon /u/unidan?
Ahh yeah that makes sense. Wicked shot. I usually hate hearing this but well. I have nothing to contribute. That just looks fucking awesome. Clearly you put work into it (or at least did a few attempts with different exposures.) Keep up the good
I had to walk my little sister in to Chinatown from Brooklyn. Went over the Manhattan bridge carrying her luggage. Power was out halfway across, and as soon as we hit the dark, shit got crazy. A twitchy homeless dude was threatening to cut
You also need to grab the “photographer’s ephemeris”. I’m on my phone now so cant be arsed to find url etc, but search and you will find. It’s an invaluable tool for figuring out sunrise/sunset times, sun/moon position at any time during the day
It’s a bit confusing and it depends on what model camera you are using. If you’re using one of the normally supported point and shoot cameras I believe you need to get a separate script. I think the one I used in the past
Good question. It depends on whom you ask. Conservative people might consider this image porn already, because there is nudity, and don’t refer to it as artistic nude. It all depends on your religious/country/etc background. Some people consider the explicit photographs of photographer Terry
The pedals look like they have [trichomes](http://www.cannabisculture.com/files/images/IMG_0218.jpg) just like a pot plant. Trichomes store most of the THC in pot.
You’re incorrect about how double exposure works. It’s not equal blending, it’s addition. You can only add light when you open the shutter again, not subtract or “blend.” If something is white in either exposure, it cannot become anything else. This image could easily
You might have noticed separation near the top of the pink layer. The pink layer has a chalky texture which reacted with the layer above it. When I cut the plasterboard to repair a water-damaged section, the 5 layers above the pink have a
It’s the Griffith Observatory, probably the most tourist friendly spot possible to get a great view of the LA skyline. Reasonable amount of parking and it’s all free of charge. Perfectly safe at night, but watch out for crowds as it tends to fill
Something about this doesn’t feel natural to me; if I had to guess it looks like you have a picture during the afternoon for the bridge, judging by the shadows, and a picture at night for the sky. Maybe try snapping the foreground at
I take care of 9 space weather experiments for various universities, run the greenhouse and do other various things around the station but there are 45 people here for the winter with all kinds of jobs from dealing with waste, materials, power/water plant techs,
Lincoln! I’ve been following your work for a while now, big fan! I just landed back in Sydney, feel free to check out my stuff on www.fb.com/tjoezthemoviemaker
lol I just think it looks pretty. If you zoom in on just the iris (that’s the colored part, right?) it looks insane. It reminds me of space. If you zoom out and people all of a sudden know it’s an eye you’re a
Admittedly I did run it though photoshop quickly, but this is pretty much fully do-able in Lightroom. Specifically look at the noise reduction (would be even better with Raw) http://i.imgur.com/WpmIJdb.jpg Obviously element of personal taste goes into anything and I am not at all
Sure just look up masking in Photoshop:) This is my free HDR tutorial, it is not using stars but will show you how to apply a layer mask then you can apply the same skill to your star pictures in photoshop. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7KcEdf_jxCE. I also
Yeah. So imagine throwing a ball. Eventually that ball hits the ground. Now, imagine throwing that ball 17,000 mph. That ball would still fall towards the earth, but it wouldn’t hit the earth. That’s what the ISS is doing, and that’s what orbit is.
I have a weird love for globes but especially when they’re also lamps. This is awesome.
This has been posted in a lot of subs. It is a fake frog with glass eyes. You can see the paint brush marks around the eye and mouth.
I can only recall ever seeing a Luna moth in real life on one occasion. I was perhaps 5 or 6 years old. At the time we lived in an old farmhouse out in the country. My siblings and I found it on the
U$180 for the camera, a used Canon G9 U$100 for the close-up filter msn-202 and U$6 for it’s adapter U$11 for the external flash (cy-20) and U$16 for the cord Still it’s far from being the cheapest setup possible.
If you look at the left wing (insect’s right) you can tell that the item in discussion is scoop-shaped. Additionally, the light would pass through the cells of a trasnparent wing, allowing us see through it, whereas this elytra is opaque. My guess is
Not macro, still looks awesome but wrong sub. Also did you take this with a phone? It’s quite impressive.
