Congratulations to buffalowolff for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 17 votes - View Previous Winners


First time in the Outer Banks, had to make a night time visit, and wasn't disappointed. There was just enough marine fog as the temperature dropped to add some real character. These are all single exposures.




#1 From the base






#2






#3






#4 Got Milk?

They are all very good. However, for me the first stands out as a unique view..

Love these! Was there two years ago, but a full moon prevented any such attempt. Really well done.

Thanks all! I really liked this place. My son enjoyed the tour to the top as well. Great view up there.

I love the way you captured the rays. Shooting the Milk with something so bright is very hard to do, I think you knocked it outta the park!

Thank you! I took lots of different shots with the lighthouse light on, off, almost off and found the best was when I caught 1 full pulse (it did 2 per cycle). With no light the milky way was certainly a little more clear, but with the exposure getting about 1/3 light on, 2/3 light off (or more) it worked out really well. The mosquitos were fed well too.

For the rookies among you would you please elaborate on your technique (specifically ISO, shutter speed, aperture) for these amazing single exposures? Thanks!
