Actually, these ones were taken on the reverse side of a big tatty poster that Blockbusters gave to me, and about 10 minutes worth of editing in Photoshop.

Ah, the crazy days before photo tents....  :lol:

Tsk, I'm disappointed, Nic. You forgot the all-important Lens Flare...

I've never once found a practical use for Adobe's all-singing, all-dancinng lens flare option... until now.  :lol:

Brilliant!  It's looks fantastic, I'd never thought of using it for glass.   :P  :P  :twisted:

I have a friend, David Hardy, who reckons he was the first person to ever use this effect on his astronomical paintings, around 1970. He's still waiting to be proven wrong:

Were there not lots of similar spacey lens flares in Kubrick's '2001' two years earlier...?

Quite possibly but these were probably not special effects. I was referring to David's still images and him being the first to actually paint the effect, however, he may have gained inspiration from the film as he was originally going to be one of the artists on the film. Think he had a disagreement with Kubrick, or something, but it's on the web site somewhere... :P

My aunt used to work in special effects and she said that Kubrick was a man very easy to fall out with (she worked on The Shining, which is legend for having a very tense and drawn out production).  :lol:

I get the feeling this is fast moving into Cafe territory....

Sorry about that John, we seemed to have hi-jacked the thread unwittingly. That's the trouble sometimes: you get distracted from the main thrust... :oops:

The main concensus does appear to favour a Polish make, but it's still not conclusive. Nic and I were just keeping the thread alive (well, that's our excuse :) )
