But had some waiting to do today. -Shea
I like this, but there's something going on with the colors... Looks really compressed.
...Not sure if that was intentional or not.
So you used the 8-point star filter? I like the effect it had on the lights, but the halos around everything else I'm not so big on.
Yeah I crushed it, looked like the Animals album on location, so I just dirtied it up a bit.
This is a possible keeper from the same night (Sunday), although the palm tree weights the composition a skew..
Cross stars are 'in camera' (24-105mm L) - and I even pulled the UV filter that night. Halos are a result of me just drafting a comp together.
BTW - Shooting in low sodium lighting sucks thus far, I tried a few color temps and ended up shooting the usual tungsten that corrected toward green in the highlights :lmao:
I prefer to shoot these on the Full Moon with no additional light, but had a jones to shoot that night. Thanks for your observations,
BTW - Venus painted the sensor with a nice glow, just reviewing these on the fly here (his name is Stanley):
I know you don't allow editing of your pictures but I would like to show you something (a filter) I was playing with. Do you mind in this one instance? If you do, that's cool... I just thought it was kind of fun for your nice shot.
EDIT: Here is a little more data and the pre-filtered version.
2nd EDIT: Here is a slightly brushed look, false highlights & shading (child's play), sans tree (much better) - although this is right on the edge of black so your display may vary. Still don't like yellow lights as a base.. -S
OK, I have been playing a bit... here's one that I introduced some sky glow.
