This is one of my first still photographs that I animated with Plotograph Pro (link to get the animation software) and I was HOOKED! It's incredible how you can take an "older" image and breathe new life and flow into it like this. I don't know about you, but I get quite hypnotized by this effect!
By the way, if you want to know more about Burning Man, I wrote an extended article about it here.
This sculpture is called "Truth and Beauty" by Marco Cochrane.
I know I know.... another fire shot. This is "Embrace" by the Pier Group at Burning Man. This animation technique works great with water, hair, grasses, clouds, and of course FIRE!
