David Brown Photography (formally Jethrohoyt). A lifetime Yorkshire-American photographer who owned his first SLR over 40 years ago. Now having progressed to the digital age, Panoramio is the perfect vehicle for this world traveling Yorkshireman/American, multi-lingual (speaks English, American, Geordie, Yorksheer and Southern). I live in various places in North Carolina, and love kayaking, biking and hiking, laughing and thinking. Oh and photography and everything 'computer'. I have used a variety of cameras over my lifetime. Many older scanned images on Panoramio will have been taken using either a Praktika SLR, a Pentax MV SLR or later waterproof Pentax point and shoot and either negative or slide film. My first digital camera was a Sony P&S, followed by a CDHK hacked Canon S3 and then augmented by an Olympus waterproof. I now carry around a Nikon D5100 with a brace of lenses plus a tripod that I NEVER use, and I do my best to try to look like I know what I am doing! Software I use? Picasa, Luminance (formally QTPFSGUI), Photomatix trial, HUGIN, Shift-N, Gimp for when all else fails and Lightroom. I enjoy laughter and mean nobody any harm, laugh with me, laugh at me. Its all good. Jethrohoyt became my unique web persona after I realized there were more David Browns out there than there are Chinese people in the world. You can call me David or Jethro. People have called me worse. I can be contacted at jethrohoyt via AOL.

Very good, Iam sure this was set up here for your benefit J

Hope you are having a good weekend.............Cheers o'l pal..............Gordon

Thank you Tom for your very careful analysis which made me go investigate this.

First the short plane bottom right occurs right at the beginning and is heading down below the horizon and is two 30 second frames.

Now the big controversial light trail.......

This is one aircraft flying away from the camera AND left to right. The entire left half of the trail.... that is; left of frame to north star is one 30 second exposure. The right hand half of the shot consists of 4 x 30 second exposures and here the plane is flying further away from the camera, so the gap between light flashes (because that what we are looking at here) are smaller and smaller... so the flashes are closer together.

When I exported the shots from RAW to JPG for stacking I applied lens adjustment equally to each one..... BUT Its not beyond the realm of possibility that there is some curvature distortion here and the North Star just happens to appear dead center (ish).

Finally..... the clouds are actually clouds and not contrails. They are little fluffy blobs that are slow moving from left to right (like the big plane).

I'll post a composite proof on G+ in a few minutes. You know where I live :-)

Many many thanks for giving me something to do whilst on bear-watch. Its like Baywatch but only involves a bird feeder.


Nice - and deserted. Like 28. Best wishes, Göran

Panoramio SPC 66 - 'Passages' has been announced. If you have suitable photos please enter them in the competition! For information see here!

That came out great!

I see the beard has another use - to prevent sunburn on the neck! You seem totally relaxed, Keith. :)))

Cheers, Amelia

The French for mad turnip would be 'Navet lunatiques' It has a certain ring to it, I think I will get a sign with it on. Cheers Dave for the good idea :)

I never have much success with firework photographs, although I used to do public displays, you don't get much time to watch, or photograph them. Of course this was a display for your official birthday, which coincides with National parsnip day. :)

Excellent composition.


Best wishes from Jordan.
