12/16/06 - Just Another Flower - Take 2

I did the first take of this image - - for yesterday's PAD. I had no intention of making the two image montage that I did then. One of the two images was a "multiple exposure like" shot that was made by shaking the camera during a 1 second exposure - and that I intended to do but had no idea how the result would look. The 2nd image was one of nine that I shot for intended use in a nine-shot multiple exposure. Unfortunately, the 2nd was shot in jpeg and I wasn't careful with it since once it was smashed together with eight other images to make the multiple exposure lack of sharpness wasn't really an issue. However, when - on a whim - I put the two together I liked the result (except that now the lack of focus on the 2nd image bit me in the butt).
Today I returned to the scene of the crime to try it all over again - except this time with the intention of making a montage. And this is what I got. The reason for going through it all over again is that I'm considering using this as an entry in a juried exhibit and didn't want to give a judge any more to pick on than necessary. Images of this type tend to be "high risk" as it is without adding to the problem.

Ed: Your account on how this is done is interesting, but the main thing is you tried to do something different and for me it worked great. Your flower shots are really nice!

Ed, I'm really impressed with result. Very artistic and creative. What technique did you use to combine two images together?
