Very nice. My goal for the next year is to get out with my 4x5 to do som star trails as well.
First two would have been a little better with the compositions. The traffic is distracting, while the half-branch in the second is off-putting IMO.
Interested in know in the specifics of the pic. I'm guessing the pic was stitched together, what was the overall exposure time?
Now you're just showing off!
Great work. How do you get the colours in the trails?
Wow. Colours are epic!
The stars are naturally colored, use sunlight white balance to capture it, I then boost the saturation in CS5 to make them pop.
How long were the exposures and are these stacked?
de ja vu?
I am sure I have seen these here before.
They're all stacked. First one was about 9 hours, the rest about 4 to 6 hours.
The first 3 were only shot last week, the other two are older ones that I reprocessed.
Nice star trails. My only comment is with No #1 Trees with leaves in the foreground I always find annoying as they tend to be blurry due to movement over the period.
Much prefer to use dead/unmoving trees like you did in #2, #4 and #5
I actually quite like the foreground in the third photo although it does look a bit strange/different. Can't put my finger on it but it looks a bit like the Orton Effect, but I don't suppose it is. Not sure I like the 50/50 split either, but I am being a bit critical now: A good set of photos!
Thanks for sharing these mice pics Hakka691. My clear favourites are numbers 2, 4 and 5. Whilst I missed the foreground of number 5 at first, I like the extra interest and context that it adds.
you shoped the trails onto the water?
Great trails though!
1st pic is Awesome! Automatically think of Pendulum - In Silico - album art.
