I like the movement in this and how the turbines seem to be propelling the world.

8 mins f5 iso 100 and a bit of moonlight.

Processed in Lightroom 2

Cheers for looking.

This is a fantastic picture, the streaking of the stars with the blurring of the turbine blade.

It's Ovenden Ian. It's not aurora unfortunately, just a group of small clouds that head towards the camera.

Great star trail shot and then you add in the rotation of the turbines to go with the rotation of the Earth, classic Wink

I like this a lot and am very interested in star trail photography. I've only had one go and ended up with an awful orange coloured sky. Was this the colour as shot or have you tweaked it in Lightroom?

Regards,

David

Not as shot David, I did give a custom white balance in Lightroom, I've only just started using this app. it has great colour controls.

Cheers

Lots of folks try this sort of shooting but you always seem to stay one step ahead in my mind another well thought out shot and such good viewing.

Pooch.
