I haven't posted in a while. So I thought to post a couple of my favorite shots from the past couple of weeks. I hope you like them, please let me know what you think.

Thanks.

1. Mojave Desert Ghost Town.

#2 and #4 are awesome shots in my opinion. #1 doesn't do anything for me (the lighting just doesn't make sense to me).

The first two are totally gorgeous, but then comes my most favourite colour of all, and therefore I must love the third photo. Maybe if you had moved the camera down just that tad that would have been necessary to include the blurred background leaf in the frame??? I think there may have been room to do so...

Backlit is better, much better, than against the bright sky... ;)

thank you all again for the commets.

(the lighting just doesn't make sense to me).

It's a long exposure during a full moon light. I personally like the lighting, but I would like to hear what bothers you about it.

LaFoto: Thanks a lot. I am going back and forth between the leave shots... I really like the spring colors in #3, but I think there is something mystical with just having the silhouette in #4. I also like the blacks, whites and dark blues together... Anyway, thank you for your comment...

Thanks again

I'll be doing some full moon shots this next one, but just guess at what I'm doing. I notice you shot f6.3 at 4 minutes, mind telling how you can up with those settings?

It's just that i don't feel like you really captured the scene. It's way too bright for the subject matter and it doesn't really convey the awesome mood that i am sure this place has. I do however like the POV. But that's just me.

abraxas: It just kinda evolved into these settings by trying different things out. I wanted some star trailing but not too much, so 4 minutes sounded ok. And then it was just a matter of finding a good aperture. But looking back at it, I think these settings are underexposing the image. The version you see has quite a lot of correction in it done in Lightroom.

Pleasetakeitkind: Thanks again for your comment. I see your point, and I wanna try going back and develop the picture a little differently. Thanks.
