I've long been inspired by one of Fipi's pictures. I've wanted to do something similar, and finally had opportunity, and did so today with Kristen's help. Unfortunately it was a bit muddy. Though the tripod was all the way down my beloved D40 took a trip to the mud after spinning a bit too fast. All I could do when my camera fell in the mud was laugh. It was odd.
The camera is working perfectly. The lens, after scraping mud off the front element, doesn't feel as smooth as it used to. I'm concerned about that a bit. I've always wanted an 18-70mm instead of the 18-55mm anyway, so perhaps this is my excuse to get one. For the cost, kit lenses go very wide.
Photoshopped for sensor dust, and resized. No levels/saturation/any other edits. Just in-camera Jpeg processing.
