    .....and the Totally Digital Infrared D60.

    Today was the Atlanta Steeplechase and a few thousand folks braved the
    threatening weather to dress up, drink beer and watch the ponies run.

    It was a tough day for jockeys as almost every one I bet on fell off
    his horse.
    Here's the first race:

    Here's the 4th race and my digital double-exposure shot:

    And of course, the ladies were out as well.
    Once they see me and my 20D they're all smiles.
    I think this is perhaps my favorite shot from the "Honey Cam":

    The girl on the right in this pic kept telling me that she loved me:

    Pardon?
    Double exposure is not possible with 20D camera. This to me looks like a
    blended image using Photosho or a similar application.

    That would make it a digital double-exposure, wouldn't it?

    Even if it were double exposed (which it obviously isn't), in broad
    daylight there would be a lot of "transparency" in the horses.

    Sorry... That's only a play with words.
    It would make it a picture blended from two photographs.

    I suspect your are manouvering yourself towards meeting the mandate for your
    one fan's crummy little game by making out this play is a digital version of
    a double exposure... It's not. Do right or don't it at all. Most of all,
    it's not possible for you to change the definition of a process to suit
    yourself.

    A double-exposure blended digitally. Gee, one could call that a
    "digital double-exposure." Just like I said.

    What? No threat of lawsuit because I re-posted one (actually half) of your
    Phillie images??
    Disappointing... ;)

    Don't you worry. The FBI has dropped several ongoing terrorist
    investigations so that they can put all their resources on this
    heinous crime you have committed.

    I kinda liked the blonde, myself.

  14. Yeah, you're right. The blonde is definitely better!

  16. Not at all. Nick is definitely blonde. He just doesn't get his color
    from a bottle. When his hair is cut short like that it looks dark.

    I'd be inclined to consider "digital double exposure" to include
    merging complete frames but not combining two images using complex
    selections, masks or cloning. In other words, achieving the same
    effect through multiple exposures on different frames as would be
    achievable through multiple exposures on a single frame.

    ----
    Most of the of Photographic competition judges I've come across work in the
    vein of "masking before pasting" creates a blended picture whereas
    superimposing one image over another and equalising the transparency of the
    top one is no different than a double exposure with film cameras.

    When you do as Annika did, you are taking photography into the area of
    graphic art. Such a picture (and you really need to differentiate between
    pictures and photo) would not be accepted as a Photograph in most "Royal
    Agricultural Society" shows for inclusion in their Photography competitions.
    Art perhaps. Photography, no.
