I think it is really nice picture, but... It could be better if the moon would be behind Your back... the buildings would be iluminated by its light. If You would decide to expose it longer (like 10 minutes or so), You could take some flashlight, go to the building and paint it with that light. If I were You I would try to take that exposure at f8, because it would bring nicer light flares.
Jessica, I think it's wonderful as it is. The silhouettes are an excellent compliment to that beautiful sky, and I find the composition very satisfying.
Very nice Jessica. I'm quite enjoying your recent series of night shots.
Another nice effect, Jessica! The stars are a nice bonus. I guess this is the edge of town? Your camera takes 60 second exposures, lucky you! Mine tops out at 15 seconds, that seems so cheap.
Hi Marilyn, thank you! The silhouette effect was what I'd hoped for.
Thank you Conrad, glad to hear you're enjoying my experiments!
Stoneboat, it is nice to have a camera that goes up to 60 seconds. On manual settings it only lets me set up to eight, so I use Starry Sky mode that gives a choice of 15, 30 or 60 seconds. Sometimes I wish it were more!
About the socks, good idea. I'll have to see if I can wear them, since I have family members allergic to wool and I've never tried. It would definitely be warmer though!
Starry sky mode, eh? hmmm I better look into that! If you find wool itchy, you could try a thin inner sock as well. Just not cotton.
Excellent gallery Jessica. Well done indeed !!
Stoneboat, did you find out anything about Starry Sky? My cameras are Panasonics, I don't know what it would be on a different camera.
Thanks for visiting my gallery, Trevor. Glad you enjoyed it!
Thank you so much, Bruce!!
Nice picture Jessica, I like the sense of remoteness you’ve brought out in the shot. I was also fascinated by the map of the area, there are some amazing patterns when you zoom in and move around.
Hi Ian, I guess it does look remote. But this site is only five minutes or so outside of my city (Airdrie) and the golden glow on the clouds is caused by the lights of Calgary.
I enjoy the patterns on the fields as well - especially flying over them!
Thanks for the comments.
Wow,really nice,i almost think the photo is taken in South Pole~~Ha :P
I understand what robgr85 was trying to say, but I do like what you've done here, Jessica. I'm wondering if you could have got the same effect with a slightly shorter exposure, to help unblur the stars. Either way, it's neat.
beautiful picture an scenery!!
Greetings from agios
