    Love the glitter. I bet you put it on some tape behind the film.

    Nope, there's no tape involved.

    I think a fairy passed by and she sprinkled some glitters on your film !

    those are actually doubles. You shot the nightsky on clear night so we actually see real stars. Hand over those Pigs !

    I have to agree with doubles and stars, but not an actual pix of the nightsky with a regular camera. To get that many stars I think you photographed a picture taken with a Big telescope. And the color stripes, are they Diana F+ Flash filters? Although I think the Fairy idea is Brilliant! heehee

    @clickiemcpete @gauthierdumonde @alburnkat Doubles, yes (that's in the tags); tape, nope; stars, nope; telescope, nope; flash gels, nope; fairies, nope - it's actually a lot simpler than that: the first exposure was three different-coloured sheets of glittery card from a craft shop, stapled together and shot in direct sunlight slightly out of focus to enhance bokeh (my daughter was watching me and she said, "Dad, why are you taking so many pictures of the same boring thing? You're mad!" Ah, how little they know, these sweet innocents... ;-) The glitter-less stripe across all the shots was a mistake, 'cos I didn't get the film lined up correctly when I reloaded for the second exposures (which also explains why the lab person was unsure where to crop the frames and chopped the skeleton's head off!). So that's all there is to it. But you all made valiant guesses, and I would like to award you each this little piggy (and his pet!) for your efforts: Best regards, and big thanks to you all! :-)
