p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Wish Upon a Planet {old pier davenport}


Hello All,

I returned to the old pier for some star photos. Sunsets are earlier and moon wasn't rising until much later so I took a chance and hoped it would be dark enough and no clouds to interfere. The clouds stayed away. I did 6mins at iso 1600 F2.8 on the foreground and 28 secs @ iso 3200 F2.8 for the stars. I blended both in CS 5.

EDIT - uploaded wrong file the first. Output in LR set to some sharpening that added muddiness I didn't like.


C&C Welcome

Thanks Tyler.

That's not the moon. From my last milkyway shot, someone pointed out that should be Venus.

Awesome image! Colors and the blend is right on!

Only thing I'd change - crop a bit off the left and the top to move Venus off center.

What a nice place to setup for a shot. I really like how the concrete and wood skeletons are left from that pier, it leads my eye out into the frame nicely. Colors are just super here too. Excellent execution from start to finish. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet shot Jason...
The use of Venus was well thought out.

Hi Jason. Are you using NR on your shots?

Very nice image. I find it hard to believe that's not the moon, but then, I wasn't there

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Guari - it shouldn't be the moon since moon rise according to schedule that day was at 9:30pm. Plus it looked really small for the moon .

Jason-
My mind can't wrap around the idea that it's Venus .
But since I trust you that it is- I'll just stop thinking about it .
Regardless of my mind's limitations- I really like the image .
A lot of thought and work obviously went into the shot- and they all were fruitful.
