Fallen Star

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The majestic old Benedictine Abbey continues to attract my attention so I could not resist taking another shot..A full moon, partially hidden behind some clouds, gave some extra light. A long exposure and manual focus helped to deliver a pleasing result..Despite all the criticism regarding the Pentax K7's low light level performance, I am reasonably happy with the result..Please feel free to add your own opinions! I thank my friend nanoinca for the idea of the title :)

Jim, A superb shot. You can be very happy with the performance of your Pentax with just a little noise in the blacks which should be expected. I would have to give it a 9 out of 10 with an extra point for the clever title. L&F & many thanks for your compliment.. Regards Jack

Always good to be reminded of this famous iconic building Jim. Good to see the star too :) I too should try to get here at night sometime but I rarely get to Whitby nowadays. However I did get there a few weeks ago and managed to snap this dear old friend again. There does not seem many ways that this has not been presented and so my latest offering is nothing special. Unlike yours! BIG like of course. Keep Well.

Cheers, Herb
