  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Went out to have a go at shooting the stars the other night, these are a couple of the better ones. With no real idea how these would come out I'm fairly happy for a first attempt.

    These were all shot on a Canon 80D with the EF-S 10-18mm lens @10mm.

    C&C welcome, my PP is a bit severe I suspect... on that note, any advice from people experienced in processing these types of shots would be much appreciated. I tried to push the third one a bit more hence it looking different, you can really see the effect of the high ISO in the blotchy colours.

    Well you're certainly in the ball park as far as exposure time is concerned. No trailing, bit of coma in the corners but that's normal for most lenses until they are stopped down a bit so nothing to worry about.

    Processing is very much a personal thing, like it is with other aspects of photography so, rather than try and give you processing tips, have a look at this site.

    I think the next step would probably be to take multiple images and average them.

    Beautiful. Out of interest how do these compare to what you could see with the naked eye?
