    Quote:I like the effect the long expose gives, but would this image be any the less without it?
    The "strong" point of the image here is the sky and the rock that is balancing the composition on the left. Without the long exposure and cloud movement the visual impact would be substantially less ...but .. again I would not post it if the sky was not there .

    Quote:Another stunning image Charles.
    Last year I was running around with my RB67 on the tripod and over my shoulder when that dropped off and fell in the water.

    Quote:Fabulous image Charles, I'd love to see a B/W version.
    mike

    Thank you for commenting Mike ! , I will try a b&w version although I feel that the picture "works" in color with the " heavy" red lighthouse balancing the "lighter" rest of the frame.

    Beautiful model and pose !
    In My Humble Opinion , the image would be much better is the foliage above the horns was not there.
    Fantastic image and mood though !!

    Quote:All your effort was worth it! It's a great shot!

    Personally, I think a shot without the aeroplane light trail would be equally as good, if not better, as it is very bright and dominating, thus drawing the eyes away from the lovely star filled sky! It would be interesting to clone it out and make a comparison!


    I tried that just to see how it would look. I still like the one with the trail. maybe because I was there when it happened I dont know.
    Both are good versions with the one with the cloned out trail more "classic" so to speak Smile
    Thank you for commenting.

  • Star trails over Aphrodites rock in Cyprus


    Quote:Stunning imagery...

    How long was your exposure?

    Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin


    Hi Nathan ,
    For the Star trails f/3.3 , ISO 2500 , 30sec for each of the 100 RAW images , blended in PS6 in Lighten mode.
    For the the Foreground f/9 , ISO 2500 , 450 sec.

    I Left the camera there for one and a half hour , but then I realized that the limit for continuous shooting (for my D800) is 100 frames. I didn't know that , so the trails came shorter that I intended to.
    Now that I am aware of this Limitations , I will get around it next time for longer trails.

    Thank you for commenting Smile
