This is a photo of entrance to Sydney's Luna Park. Located on the north shore of the Harbour, it has a stunning backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. As you can probably tell, I got this effect by zooming the lens during the exposure.
If you want to see what Luna Park looks like un-zoomed, please see my photo Happy 10th Birthday TE.

Love the telescopic 'eyes'! Must start playing around with my zoom:-) Well done!

Ciao cara Lisa,
Yes, just for fun - and it is fun too with those big eyes standing out on stalks and the big white shiny "Pepsodent" teeth!
P.S. Just for interest - and I've probably asked you this before - do you "start" at the long or short end of your zoom when doing this?

...ed é un effetto molto bello da un punto di vista grafico quello che sei riuscita ad ottenere.
Perfettamente consono al tipo di soggetto che ritrae.
Un caro abbraccio amica mia

Ciao Lisa, è veramente una immagine simpatica...da quanto ho capito le luci creavano del movimento e con i tempi bassi è venuto (hai creato) questo splendido effetto...veramente contagiosa la tua voglia di sperimentare...Brava...

You captured this image from Luna Park wonderfully and it is pleasure to look at. The lights, the effect of it is impressively beautiful. Great captured and fantastic presentation. Like it. Thank you.

Good idea for a shot very well managed, interesting result and effect, bravo !
BennyV (20681) 2012-10-16 11:44
Playful picture post today, Lisa. The kind of shot that refuses to get in line. Eyeballin'!

For whatever reason, the teeth are freaking me out a bit here... the eyes are really what make this effect work so well, as they're so clear at either end of the zoom. The surrounding lights make a nice frame, and the 'Luna Park' lights appear projected onto the sky, which is a great effect - fun shot, but also quite well executed!
francio64 (39888) 2012-10-16 13:10
ahahahahah, che foto!
L'effetto esplosione fa apparire la faccia dell'entrata del Luna Park come se avesse gli occhi di fuori e i denti stirati.
Devo riconoscere che ci sai fare con questo tipo di foto.
Avrei soltanto croppato quella luce azzurrina sulla sinistra che distrae un pò, lasciando tutto nero.

passi da un soggetto ad un altro completamente diverso, con grande facilità e maestria.
Questa è una foto molto simpatica, sia per il soggetto sia per la realizzazione.

Original coup de zoom qui donne un aspect cartoon à la photo avec les yeux sortant de la tête et la langue bavante....il a dû voir une fille super sexy!

Nice idea and a funny result. I like it, spectacular effect.
Enjoy a fine day.

Ciao Lisa,una vera genialata,che effetto spettacolare! E' sempre un piacere fermarsi nella tua gallery,c'e' sempre qualcosa di originale,differente e di altissima qualita',sei grande....e questo e' un altro magnifico esempio!!! Complimenti e buona serata,Luciano
williewhistler (16496) 2012-10-17 2:46
well you learn a little every day..
I`m not convinced that this is just plain zooming,me thinks that there is a bit more than that to this shot,whatever,the final effect is fabulous.
Kind regards Les.
krzychu30 (15512) 2012-10-17 9:36
magnificent shot!I´ve neve seen such amazing effect.I´ll have to try it out.Looks like a lot of fun.
The scene looks really fabulous,love especially how look like the eyes and teeth.Very imaginative shot!
And for us it´s always nice to learn something new.Thanks.
Waylim (25436) 2012-10-17 11:39
This is really cool, just in time for Halloween. Love the motiion and the 3D effect, the eye popping and shiny teeth, woh, everythign coming toward us. Love the golden color and light, and strong graphic and visually very captivating. Festive mood and fun atmosphere. I love the fun spirit of it and great quality photo too.
ktanska (29451) 2012-10-17 12:07
Those popping eyes are just great fun, and make this shot go beyond cheap trick. That Luna Park face is very recognizable. Would be too much to call it an icon of Sydney, but maybe a runner-up!
kordinator (15429) 2012-10-18 0:12
Original and interesant effects in your image from Luna Park.
Excellent playing with zoom.
chrisvek (7001) 2012-10-18 2:24
That's a very well composed image.This is the paradise of children.Very good lightning management and great POV.Well done.
Have a nice day
ikeharel (79161) 2012-10-18 9:26
This is magic, Lisa. I have no idea how you managed this intriguing technic - I guess not every camera has this possibility.
The lights are magnificent, clarity and POV are super.
gervaso (16817) 2012-10-19 4:48
This picture of this place is even greater with this effect! Perfectly captured with excellent light and colors! Wonderful job! Really well done!
Didi (60590) 2012-10-19 9:50
Interesting zoomed composition.
Well done for thelights management.
ourania (51103) 2012-10-19 13:22
Ciao cara Lisa,
questo effetto e' molto spettacolare e divertente, ideato e realizzato benissimo. Mi piace tanto la sua richezza, il dinamismo, la luminosita', la stupenda definizione di motivi e colori. Il quadro e' pieno e soddisfacente e possiamo anche vedere chiaramente com' era la facciata prima che il gioco partisse. Acquisce facilmente l' ammirazione ed il sorriso che merita. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,
abmdsudi (58260) 2012-10-19 20:21
I think you have captured this fun'ness, a lovely humorous picture and what an effect. The shutter speed i think is ideal, the frozen parts are well seen whilst the radiating motion is so evident. Excellent placement of the sharp 'Luna Park' signage to hold the focus in, anyway looks like you had a more productive evening there.. Excellent shot!
Noel_Byrne (33726) 2012-10-20 0:58
Wow, what an effect! Those eyes are superb (if a little creepy) and I would imagine they would follow you around the room if this show were on the wall. This is a fantastic effect, and one I have never gotten the hang of. Mostly, I see this done on things without human features, and this really shows how well it can work. Great shot indeed,
All the best
mirosu (16273) 2012-10-20 3:30
Excellent axial motion photo. You have created a very good effect. I'm surpricrd how clear you got the the LUNA PARC name. I never tried such kind of zooming with camera. I achieved some kind of motion effect with Photoshop. Well done indeed. Have a nice weekend.
PecoBud (3824) 2012-10-20 11:16
Hey girl!! Thank you for checking on me!! I've started to post again, but sitting and critiquing will require support from everyone. I just don't seem to have the spirit like I did before, but I'm trying, because people like you and the rest of my TE family are sooooooooooooo missed and loved!!
I have just enough time before leaving to say THANK YOU!!
Love this photo Lisa, it brings a welcome smile to my face.
TFS..........Your Friend from California.......Buddy
