johnmsanderson, that's a wonderful effect.
My only niggle is that the repeat is a bit too obvious on the right hand side. For me, the clear spatial doubling detracts from the otherwise excellent feeling of superimposed activity and stroboscopic time. Easily cured by cropping just right of the wooden pole.
Stephane Couturier is a French photographer who has made wonderful multiple exposures in factories (on LF too). There's a fine balance between chaos and gesture that he gets just right.
thanks for the info. i didn't consider your niggle but it make sense. i'm going back to this location all the time for photos, i'm definitely going to try it again. It was only 2 exposures.
Couturier is good.
Another one from what I think was the same day.
Nobody ever made money paying attention to my niggles. Least of all me :-)
I like the puddles too. I think it was Siskind who said he always liked to include two objects in his abstracts - the viewers mind can't help but anthropomorphise the relationship between them.
