    I finally decided to head out and try to get a few night pictures last night under the (nearly) full moon. It was a little hazy, as you can see in the picture. I just have to wait for a clear night. Let me know what you think!

    Canon 5D MkII, f/4, 1 sec exposure, ISO 25600



    Just kidding! That picture was just to make sure I had it composed how I wanted it. Here's the final result:

    Canon 5D MkII, f/8, 25 min 47 sec exposure, ISO 100

    Absolutely no PP done except for the resize.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    Thank you :) Here's one more from last night. I'm not as fond of this one as I am the other one.

    I don't really like them ( not that they are terrible ) I just think the mountains are too bright. Its like a cloudy day shot with a couple star streaks. I think you need some sense of nighttime to the picture. I am no expert on startrails though and have never done them, so maybe this is not possible.

    Thank you :)

    Taylor510ce, that's part of what I find intriguing about this kind of photography. Knowing that these pictures were taken just before midnight, yet being able to see so clearly, truly fascinates me. Maybe it's just me though.

    Well ignore what I said anyway, if I tilt this laptop screen slightly they look great. So for all I know I am looking at a messed up angle

    I didn't really care how #1 looked, hence the 25600 ISO setting lol. It was just to make sure I had the composition correct. Thanks though :)

    Lol I think #1 was more of a joke...just to show the power of 25600 ISO haha. #2 is absolutely awesome.
