Re: NEX Images Thread


I tried some night shots of the DC-3 I've been taking photos of lately. They sky wasn't great as it rained most of the day yesterday and there was a slight ground mist. Also with a small headlamp it's VERY difficult composing the image, it was only a 1/4 moon and I wasn't getting much of anything on the LCD or EVF unless I focused a bright beam on part of the fuselage. But I have an idea of what I want now (assuming the plane stays there for a while and I get a good clear night)

Nex5N 60mm R Elmarit .. should have shot a seperate image with the stars in focus, but realistically it's too long a lens to freeze the stars. I like the composition though.





Nex 7 10-18
Switching to wider does a better job on the stars





This one got the sky about right but the composition wasn't great





I like this composition best, but now too much light from the horizon and it's washing out the stars (but a cleaner shot as I was down to 200ISO)
