The moon looked too fake for me in the first upload, so this one's better (although a well worked moon top right would still work. Nice work.

thanks Martin I don't know how to 'well work' a moon though

I would have been better off using my moon-light stencil in cam, I'm better at that than I am with Photoshop (I think)

funny thing was it was the REAL Moon

By fake I ment cut&pasted on to a sky that was taken with a long exposure. A moon on a long exposure wouldn't be a clear sharp moon thinking about it, so the first image is definately well put together and thought out.

nice arm action with the background Smile

thank you for the RC pepes and the GEA, thank you Pete for the HC

Thanks Paul, (and others) good tips you gave me, good job I dumped that other one now hey ? (now v3)

Hi Janet, thank you but nope the shot was easy peasy, took 70 seconds thats all.....

it was all that editing stuff I had to do to put the trails over her head that took time

thats why I prefer in cam images cos I like playing out at night mostly...!

but anyway I done it now, that layering traily thingy

Carrying the amp and her Gibson to the ruin was the hardest bit on the night cos I lost my way in the grounds and I got all girly scared in the dark cos we have to walk through a very dark woods to get to the ruin, it was 11.00 pm - 12.30 am when we shot these

Anyways thats great then thank you very much

Well, first think I thought while looking at V1, "How is this possible, a sky shutter speed of probably 2-3 minutes or more... and a foreground of 3"-10" maximum " then remembered about your previous upload... And if you do remember I called the previous upload a masterpiece! heck if that's a masterpiece I really don't know what to call this one! well the awards are talking for themselves I guess. Hmmm, the sky and previous upload have an idea about capturing like that. However, this one, I need some tips if you don't mind since it's night shot and the human object is a slight moving object, yet, it's so composed and focused well! thanks in advance

Heya, Astyag the sky background trails are a 30 minute exposure in this one, (not 2-3 minutes) and the foreground image is just 70 seconds that’s it really

and thank you for saying about masterpiece!

that one was three hours
