    A little noisy but that just helps keep the bears away!

    I like the trees in the foreground! Was this a single exposure?

    Thank you. Yes a single shot ISO 8000, 15 seconds @ f/2. I have some other shots and will try to do a stack and get rid of some noise. But I am happy with the color in this one.

    I really do like the treeline that you included. Very nicely conceived.

    Thank you! The original plan was to use a gazebo for a foreground. My lens wasn't wide enough. I'll post that one later but I like the treeline foreground better!

    No this is up in the White Mountains in NH. That trip is at the end of September. Not sure if I'm going at this point. A lot will depend on what happens over the next month. It's not looking good. I may see if I can push it out to 2021.

    I sure hope it works out. I've seen naked eye skies out west at altitude that are nearly as bright as time exposures out east. Once again you are inspiring me to get back to the Skyline Drive and shoot the sky.

    You could drop your ISO to 4000 and increase your time to 24 sec and let photoshop/Topaz fix the rest to cut down some of that noise.

    Thanks!

    Thanks - I do have a few shots at lower ISOs that I need to edit still. I was playing around with different ISO and shutter speeds trying to find that sweet spot for the xt2. I was trying to get more color than previous shoots. I don’t think I exposed long enough on the lower ISO’s. Even with ISO invariance you can’t make up for too short on the exposure time. I won’t make that mistake again.


    Thanks!
