Stained Glass Zoom

What I like about this one is that you can see the shape of the window in the background. This requires waiting briefly at the beginning of the exposure before zooming. Both yesterday's technique and today's were learned from Tony Sweet.

I prefer this approach. I like how it's off center.

A fantasy turbulent and colorful ... looks great! It reminds me of kaleidoscopes that I have always liked both. A hug, Adela

This is gorgeous, too. Thanks for the explanation. Since I shoot Nikon and have a zoom with a collar, I think I should be set. I'll try it soon.

This is probably the only type of zoom burst that I can manage with my camera.
