Red tree revisited.
« on: May 14, 2012, 14:07:35 »
I thought I would go back to an old photo that I'm not happy with. The concept was there when I shot it, doing a bit of long exposure (30 seconds) and some light painting with my tail-lights etc, but the end result came up short.

So, what I have done now is some creative 'shopping and a bit of a blend with a 4 minute tracked exposure of the sky instead.

A bit dramatic and well over the line between photography and art, but I had fun putting it together.

That tree doesn't look very well !

Did you say just a single 4min tracked exposure  :o

It's a willow and it is a very healthy tree.

4 minutes is correct! ;)

It is incredible that you can capture such a fine view of the Milky Way with a single exposure of 4 mins. Your skies must be as black as squid ink.

I am often completely blown away by our cold-sub-alpine dark site views not so far from Canberra City.

Single exposure of 4 minutes?  It makes me want to weep over our terrible skies here in the UK :(

Nice image by the way!
