Graded motion




Graded motion
This is where I got a flatter and deeper perspective ending up on a hilltop with a few trees on it. The train must be travelling at 100kmph approx. A slight reverse pan (moving camera backwards to keep up with trees) helped create a quieter tree line. Moving train automatically gave a busy foreground resulting in interesting juxtaposition. Comments and critiques please!

Another interesting perspective here Nirlep. I would consider cropping the darker pixels at the bottom - not sure how that touches your taste buds. Thanks for sharing..

fascinating, never seen anything like it before, this technique could be use for all kinds landscapes, i think Ganesh is right about the darker bottom though, this could work very well in 3:1

This is just great. The top looks still and the bottom part shows motion. Fantastic seeing Nirlep. I too agree with Jack, never seen anything like this. :)
