New - dry image works better.
Clean - looks like a well timed image, works for the theme and just enough motion captured in the brush.
Open - love this, nice to see a bit of blossom even if they are a bit early in flowering, lovely soft pink tones and the water droplets adds to the image.
New - I prefer the dry shot. Looks like you'll no go short for beans this year!
Clean - Nice shot. Perfect shutter speed. Nice framing too.
Open - Wow. That's a stunner! I'd say the new lens is a winner
After a failed attempt to get this weeks theme at the weekend, i've come up with this idea. Not having tried to photograph the stars before, i thought i'd give it a go. I didn't realize just how little light pollution can have a big impact on this sort of photography. I couldn't see (with the naked eye) any light in the distance, but it has shown up quite clearly in my photos. I've had real trouble trying to reduce it, especially where it was reflecting off of some thin low cloud.
I agree, it's a great image, and the light in the distance adds to the distant feel.
Nice bit of light painting on the nearer trees too....really gives it some cool interest.
I've tried to do this in the past....and failed....it's not easy, but you've succeeded Dominic!
What an excellent first attempt, Dominic! Like you I have tried this once, and that was for a 52 theme too, and I do want to have another go as the night sky is fascinating. After our photo club meeting last night a group of us stood outside in temps of -2 gawping in awe at the stars and the deep black background, watching more stars appear as our eyes adjusted. None of us had cameras with us, of course!
I would probably have cropped the foreground grass, but I like the faint light on the tree branches and the glow on the distant clouds adds another sense of the vast night sky.
I like the motion you have captured during the sweeping, nice bits of colour through the image.
Love cherry blossom flowers and this is a very nice picture of them too, water droplets rendered nicely.
Nice image with Orion there, you have done well with the light pollution, I like how the tree is lit here.
This was a bit of a rush job, i only had 20 mins during my lunch break to photo some of the hoar frost, no tripod, no added light and a light breeze. So it was done handheld, with high iso. I would like to have focus stacked, but just didn't have the time or equipment with me.
