Was out shooting the other night with a buddy and took this at a concrete mill by my house
real nice pic i really like the lighting
Very nice job.
Mind sharing your settings for that one?
Thanks man :hug::
Not at all, I just tried going onto photobucket and they are doing site maintenance... as soon as it starts workin I'll post the data in here haha
Excellent job. I like the starburst effect of the light! Was this mounted on a tripod? Props to you if it was handheld :thumbup:
Thank you! No it was shot on a tripod, it was really dark outside haha I believe the shutter speed was around 15 seconds.
edit: wow I was wrong, it was only 3 seconds. :lmao:
Looks good, but I have a few small technical nitpicks.
The horizon isn't level. Also, I would have used a lower ISO and longer shutter speed. Less noise, cleaner detail. Looks like your subject isn't going anywhere any time soon, so longer exposures aren't a problem.
Here's your EXIF Data:
Camera Make: NIKON CORPORATION

Thanks turbo, how did you pull the exif data from the photo? I was shown once, but I completely forgot.
I also appreciate the advice, I have a hard time with leveling the horizon. I should've bought a tripod with one of those bubble levelers on it haha. As for ISO, I wasn't expecting too much noise with 400, but there is definitely more than I thought
I use a plug in for firefox.
I really like this photo, the colors are so vivid it almost looks like HDR! I especially like how the tracks in the snow are accentuated by the angled light. The only issue I can see is the horizon is slightly tilted, as mentioned above. An excellent photo overall, IMO.
