A shot from last night. Was a lucky one.
Amazing as usual Kane.
I like. Good job.
I'm surprised at the lack of blowouts especially considering you were shooting at f/5.6 for 25 min.
Did you use any ND filters to achieve this shot?
During the exposure I covered the lens, there was a bit of traffic. I only let a few cars go past the lens.
f/5.6 even at ISO 100 for 25 min I would have expected the picture to look like it was taken at daylight.
I think I might have to play around with some long exposures
Is it me though, or do certain parts of the image look like they are only 8 bit colour? Especially around the tracktor area.
ISO 200, for twenty minutes, with me covering the lens for probably 4 minutes of that time, in pitch black.... no way you will get a 'day' shot.... if I was to allow all the traffic light to hit the sensor, the sky and background would still be dark, and you'd just have hot spots of blowout where the light was at its strongest.
No idea about the 8bit colour comment. Probably not a lof of details etc, as most is black and lit buy varied light.
Thanks for the info Kane.
You must have been in an extreemly dark area with no city light pollution.
Yes, out at Aratula, you're far from civilisation - warwick is closest, brisbane is many hills and mountains away... its surprising how far out of the city you have to head to get unpolluted skies.
Great job Kane, as always
Yeah, I love it out there. Thanks all.
anyone see you as they drove past? THey would have been freaked out!
Wonderful shot Kane.......I love it
Love it, great mix of everything.
This is more like it !
Thanks, I can't have good shots all the time ;P
love the shot.
It's not a meteorite until it survives an impact with the ground, so technically that photo is a meteor.
i've never gotten into astro photography.. but are there any tips on making sure that your sensor doesn't fry after long exposures?
so is that how much the sky moves in 20 minutes?
also if you covered the lens how did you get the stars behind it?
Very nice! You're a patient man..
What are the best conditions to capture star trails? Obviously out of the city a little to avoid light pollution and on a clear night.
I quite like this Kane - out of curiousity, the large image looks extremely pixellated and rough, with very strange graduation/tonal issues.
Is the original version of this photo like it? I think this is what CrazyNuts is referring to as looking like it is '8 bit color' (if you change the display properties in Windows to 8 Bit Colour you'll see what this means).
