    To me the lens creates the illusion that the truck is a scale model. A cool lens fer' sure.

    Thinking about this. 195mm is a wide angle lens on 8X10 and we're not used to WA lenses with shallow depth. So it's got the orange on the end of a pencil thing going on, then because the depth is so shallow the ground seems to dis-appear out from under the truck, plus it's got all the other weirdness and swirlies happening and it combines to cause an effect that is just downright surreal. Glad it found it's way to me. Anyone else would have had the good sense to throw it in the trash. I'll have to think about other subjects it would excel at making weird. The truck was beginners luck.

    How did you calculate the spacing of the groups, the length of the drain pipe? I'm wondering if I take the front and back of my RR and change the spacing it this will happen. I have an old 300 symmar that needs internal cleaning and wonder what would happen if i chaned the spacing between the front and back. You may be onto something here.

    Well, as a scientist, I used both SWAG and TLAR to arrive at the spacing. (scientific wild ass guess) (this looks about right)

    Try it and see. I doubt the Symmar will get weird. In this case I think there was a lot of dumb luck at play.

    If you want to at least have an idea of combinations (but not how they interact with stop position), try Googling an educational site called hyperphysics in Georgia (USA). The Gullstrand's Equation page has a calculation link that is easier to use for 'what if?' with out doing the math by hand and not knowing you made a mistake.

    You have to click thru- I can't copy & paste a link probably due to frames.
