Looks like this is about to take off.

Just thought I'd give you all a heads up while it is still possible to claim originator status in your local markets.  Or is this old-hat and I just haven't been paying attention?

It's not quite the same effect that I get by taking off my glasses, but it's pretty close.

Why is it that so many things someone may not particularly like are referred to as 'cliché'?

Haven't seen the 'zoom explosion' technique used much with buildings but this isn't the first time, no.

Looks quite nice. Hopefully it's obscure or hard enough to pull off so that it doesn't become the next HDR or dragan effect.

Dragan actually does much more than these cheap effects which try to mimick his work.
He does a lot of local adjustments, so his work is much more something between photography and painting.
After all the effort you put into something counts. The invention of a method alone will not last.

Apart from that -  I like these images.
We'll see if there will be tons of them in the near future or not ...

I thought it was clear from the context I was talking about the copiers, not the original implementation, which I rather liked.

It was more meant as a supplement, not a criticism of what you wrote. Wink

Hmmm.....I first remember seeing this technique in about 1968.

Well personally I don't regard cliche as necessarily a bad thing.  After all, it is all but impossible to take a new picture that does not contain some elements both old and well-recognized.  Can't remember the last photo I took that wasn't a cliche at some level.  All we can hope for at this late date in photography is to re-interpret existing photo precedents in interesting or somehow improved ways.

This particular type of zoom trick is impressive and the technique sufficiently self-evident that it is likely to "go viral" to use a newer term.  When I walk into the photo contest display at the county fair this summer I expect to see maybe a dozen variations on this.  And by my post I may be partially responsible. I hope that doesn't go against me at the Art Trials.

Nah, all you'd need is a good curator. Those who need worry are the buyers.

Thievery! Those are brainscans of my visual cortex from the August, 1971 Grateful Dead concert in Santa Barbara, and I want my percentage!

What photo student hasn't used this technique?  I know I did, and I seem to remember the majority of my classmates integrating it at some point into a project.

It's getting pretty bad when you have to depend upon the title to know
what's in a photograph. Used to be only true about modern art.
