A Basic simple camera trick can help you get these results and you don’t even have to “photoshop” these effects. If you are on Flickr you can search for keywords like “Camera Shake” and “Camera Toss” and you will get to see many wonderful examples of this technique. This does not always work on all scenarios. You need to choose your subject wisely so that you get a good mix of colors and the picture makes sense at the end of it.
Sometimes you don’t really zoom, shake or toss your camera, all you need to do is keep your eyes open and you can see wonderful things. The image above was taken at Great Falls in Pasaic County, NJ. What you see is a reflection of the evening sky and clouds at sunset on the flowing water.
