"Ceiling Mosaic"

"Ceiling Mosaic"
©David A. Ziser

I made the original image a few years ago while waiting around for my clients to arrive for photographs at the synagogue before the event. The interior of Plum Street Temple, which I have discussed many times before, is just magnificent. While waiting, I took a closer look at the ceiling - it is truly amazing! I wanted to create a perfectly symmetrical image capturing it's beauty, colors, details and so I pulled a wide angle lens from my bag. I lined it up the best I could and took the shot. I loved it. Well, it didn't stop there. Yesterday, I got fiddling in Photoshop, and decided I wanted more symmetry, I wanted a mosaic effect. With a few flips here and there, I got the result I wanted. Camera specs: (for the original image) Canon 20D fitted with 10-22mm lens at 10mm, F3.5 @ 1/15 second, ISO 800 - handheld. Enjoy! -David
