Police boat triptych by ingrid01

Police boat triptych

When Yelena went swimming in the sea this morning I bought my camera and lens ball. Recently I saw some commercials for it and remembered that I got one a few years ago. The problem with the thing is holding or placing it well. Looking through this mornings pictures I decided to Photoshop my fingers of the lens ball, but I was not happy with the result. So Plan B was started. But that wasn't as easy as it looks either. Originally I had deleted the 3rd photo as I thought it was quite boring and had a photo of the fishing boat. However, after the first triptych was ready, the idea got in my head to show the boats "moving". Due to the middle picture It was not possible to get the fishing boat more to the right...
Anyway, I retrieved the last pictured from my camera and now I'm quite happy.
Great triptych.

A wonderful triptych. I think you almost have to have a clear stand for your ball or something for it to sit on. I bought one two years ago and just found it last week. 😊

Well done it makes a really interesting triptych and tells a story.

Looks like this triptych has a story to tell. Beautiful shots and even more wonderful having been taken through a lens ball. Fav.

Sounds like you had a lot of effort and fun making this! I have a ball but have only used it once. You are inspiring me to find it and try again.

@sangwann - Thank you for your comments. They are very much appreciated. Just a little clarification: the pictures of the police boat were not taken with the lens ball. I didn't have the patience to get my fingers Photoshopped off the ball and went with the photos I took without the ball.

have you ever tried to do panning shots? when i first got my dslr that was one of the 3 things i wanted to do and 'master'. haven't done one in a while maybe i should. panning would really show how fast the boat was going. but aces on the triptych. aces!

@summerfield Over 10 years ago when I did a quick photo course I tried panning and wasn't too happy about my results, but... it might be time to try again! Thanks for the idea!
