EXIF multiplied by 120 exposures

Erik van den Ham on November 4, 2012

Hmm 120x that would make up for some nice overexposure I guess.... Great one! So did you push the release button 120 times or did you use some handy device to do that for you? Like this very much it's going straight to my Fav's.

Regards, Erik

Is that shadow on the planks a 120 times multiplied 'star shadow', or did you have a moon as well?

Simply beautiful.

Erik, Jeroen, and kenfowkes, here is a link to one of the single exposures

Erik, Actually each of the individual photos have the same apparent exposure value. Thankfully I didn't have to press the button 120 times. I used the camera's built-in interval timer to do that for me! :)

Jeroen, It was a really clear night and the moon was shining bright. All those shadows come from the moon light. The sky was so bright from the moon that I could hardly see the stars with my eye. I was really amazed the camera could expose the stars so well.

Thank you, kenfowkes, I'm glad you like!

You keep doing these and your going to need a few more large drives! Looks like you got the bugs worked out in your process, nicely done Sir!

The link to one of the originals made me understand the fragmented shadow on the platform. Did you consider using the complete shadow of a single shot in that bottom part?

Kevin Childress on November 5, 2012

No, no Ken ... I've already dumped all the files used to create those! And yeah, I've finally figured out how to set the intervalometer to behave correctly. Thanks!

Jeroen, I did consider using the lower part of a single photo. As you can see it would be easy enough to do. But I considered someone might recognize it as a composite so I decided against that.

Very nice, Kevin. I love those long exposure shots of the stars. I really like this composition with the deck and horizon. Very nicely done! YS
