Hope you like this ..
Very nice . Like your FG choice .
What are the details on this shot?
Specifically how long an exposure and what was the focal length?
Canon EOS 30 - 200 ISO Fuji print film
28-105 USM II set at 28mm
scanned Nikon Coolscan 5000ed
Light from the left side comes from a building 30m away with a flood light on top.
That's about it.
very nice. the lighting and colors are terrific! how do you meter something like this? i'm surprised you got such an accurate exposure.
LUCK !!! pure LUCK
experience has taught me tha f8 does the trick for stars on 200iso Fuji. How come things didn't burn out i don't know
LUCK ! i guess.
Done 1 or two others and the same settings seemed to work so who I am to argue ??
f8?!?! I am nicely surprised!
What great trails and nearly 90 degrees from your pole star!
Yes exposure really is down to a best guess and I think you got this one about right!
that is spot on - really good picture!
I've been checking out various astro-photography sites on the net recently - we have a telescope which you can attach the SLR on to - and I'd be over the moon if I could get some of these sort of shots!
I've got a Canon 20d - but as far as I can tell, I can only leave the exposure open for 30 seconds max... if I put it to bulb mode, I have to hold the shutter down manually... are there tools you buy to make the camera expose for over an hour!? thanks
Get yourself a remote shutter release cord, that way you can open the shutter and lock it in place for as long as you want without shaking the camera.
The original Canon one is quite expensive, but there is an aftermarket one that you can get off ebay for about £10 - I have one on my 10D and it works fine, and my Dad has one on his 20D which also works fine.
Well done. Amazing shot. Thx for posting your details.
Thanks for the great comments guys
you should realy check out mansi's startrial shot.
I think it is VERY nice !!!
Now I'll have to go and better on his attempt.
note to myself : things to do :
photograph crow (on tombstone)
photograph star trials.
photograph my cat - so i can start a "my cat is uglier than yours" thread
very coooool trail Hanno!!! i like it, the way you've composed it with the building.. perhaps a bit of straightening? i'm only thinking out loud, very nice neverthless.. and thanks for liking mine!
