I have no explanation, trick of the eye, the lens, the camera. I just captured it and wanted to share it.
Ok so I had the feeling to go take some HDR images of the sunset tonight. Fairly clear day, heavy rain the night before.
I have had this crazy prompting to start using filters just what ever comes to mind and to capture reflections of the sun as well. I had an expensive pair of polarized sun glasses my dad used. One day the lens popped out and I never bothered to fix them. So I took some pictures without the lens. Then I held the lens in front of the iphone camera in HDR.
The most important pictures I am going to bring to your attention that I can’t explain and the conditions were just me going at it with a camera. No real scientific method but following my gut like always.
1 – First Reflective Image
I took this image to try and capture the suns reflection on the outside of the polarized lens. My back was to the sun. Please don’t get me wrong here. There are a ton load of unknown variables but i captured what I captured and really wanted you to see it for yourself.
2 – Second Reflective Image
Not a clean window I know. But look at the interesting similarities.
3 – THIRD REFLECTIVE IMAGE
This is just my regular old sun glasses with a mirror-ish glaze. Nothin special but more trippy looking orb action bro!
4 – FOURTH REFLECTIVE IMAGE
I flipped the lens the other way and more strange stuff. Zoom in on the strange ‘sun spots’.
No Lens just raw images
