This is part of the half-burned down Franklinville Mill in Franklinville, NC. It is about 100 15 second exposures stacked for the star trails, and one 65 second exposure for the building and foreground (at a lower ISO). I used an LED flashlight to light up the building and some of the foreground, and used an LED flashlight with a yellow gel for the interior. The top right window isn't lit up because there is a metal door in front of it (it's actually an elevator shaft). The trees in the background were lit up by a nearby streetlight. Thanks for any feedback!

Nicely done. I really like the thought that has gone into the lighting - e.g. The colours rendered. And the star trail has worked beautifully. If I had any criticism (and I don't as I'd be happy to have this in my pf) it would be to work on lightening the fg a little more. The building is brighter than the rubble and this seems slightly out of balance. As ever it's just an opinion and others I am sure will disagree...

Well done,

Adam

Great photograph backed up with a well written and easy to follow narrative.

We may see this again when Haloween time arrives. Could Frankenstein live in Franklinville? Great mood and statement. TG
