This is great Fred. I like the emphasis on the landscape with the stars being incidental. The blue sky fits better with this pre dawn light. How did you light the Josua tree? It is well done.
I attempted some moonlit shots last night but got uneven sky illumination. I think I need less moonlight. I used your suggestion of ISO640 but still had lots of noise to deal with. I look forward to your workflow on night shots that you hinted at recently.
I used my 16-35 and should have used the 17TSE and accepted the slower lens for the better optics.
Without using a tracking device, I usually start 15-20s exposures at ISO 640 because it is still pretty clean with the Canon 5D III. Whenever needed, I push it to ISO 1250 knowing that some noise reduction would be required in post. I usually illuminate the foreground at the end of the exposure. Say, last 4 or 5 seconds in this case. I also try to lit it from the sides instead of straight on. Take care, Fred
Thanks Fred. I have been staying under 15 seconds even wide. But I think some of the smearing I see with the 16-35 is optics rather than motion. I don't see it with the 17TSE at similar times.
