It looks a lot warner in Trondheim than it is in Rogaland Roar. Beautiful still night photography on a very long exposure! Well taken indeed.

Beste hilsener, Amelia

Hi Amelia! The temperature was about -13C, too cold for comfort during night photography, it actually hurts after doing shots on several locations. I used 20 seconds for this shot because it's a 7 exposure HDR. Same amount of tome for all shots but different f/stops to give different exposures. If you think this was a long exposure, look at this one, 70 seconds for the longest exposure.

Hilser tilbake og ha en fin adventstid, Roar. :)

Very nice Roar, the composite of 7 images for HDR would also contribute to the soft look of the water, even if the exposures were short.....very well done.....I will try this technique too! :~) LaLa like it too! Smiles from Thailand! :~)

Thanks Lady GooGoo la la! I think it's the exposure that did the soft water. The HDR thing is to reveal details in both highlighted and shadow areas. I think it's an underrated technique for low light photos. When I do these shots I try to give all shots the same amount of time. The different exposures is created by changing the F/stop value. Smiles back from icy Norway :)

Yes you are probably right if you used a fast shutter speed to stop motion (during bright day), the HDR technique would give only 7 images for the software to blend and probably wouldnt be so smooth!

When I try photographing in cold air my lens always fogged up, guess you are used to that and let your camera temperature equilibrate first! :~)

Be careful not to breathe on the glass of the lens while it's cold. Also, if you put the lens cap in a pocket which receives body heat and moist, shake the lens cap in the air a little to cool it down and to remove any moist air trapped in the cap. That's my tips to avoid fogging of the lens based on my own hard learned experience. ;)

Thanx good tips! :~)
