Playing With Dominoes

My wife and I sat down for a game of Dominoes a while ago. It wasn't long before we were building towers and lining them up to knock them down again.

I thought these first two turned out interesting. They're both about a half second exposure with the flash set to fire on the 2nd curtain (right before the shutter closes). It's kind of like a before, during and after shot all at once.


  1. My opinion is that yes they're cool because it's like 2 pictures in 1 but I don't think they're "pretty" pictures. I know that you were playing with the shutter and exposure so don't take this critic too seriously. At worst case, you know where I live :P

    I don't know why but I really like the 3rd one.

    Good job!

  2. I agree, they're meant more to be interesting. I don't think that I'll be hanging any of them on my wall.

  3. Oh I so want to try the flash effect.... cool!!

  4. Terrific set Joel! Very cool and again, pictures that could be in a magazine. p.s. Want to see a very sad copy of your moon pics, check out mine from this morning...Im embarrassed

  5. Very nice images. It's so fun, challenging and enlightening to shoot the things we consider "ordinary" in our lives. Good job.
