  #174 Night Photography
Entry 19 of 19
   
 
Harbor Lights       ©2016 rd52
Canon EOS 7D       19th place, 5 points
15s, f9, ISO 320, 100mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Numerous adjustments in Rawtherapee, Some of the things I did, increase exposure, increase black, increase contrast. After taking my night shots for the challenge, I took two more long exposure shots with the lens cap on so that I could use them for RT's dark frame. It maps out the hot pixels. Saved as a tiff, and in PS cropped , anti-noise with Nik's Define, sized, smart sharpened and saved as a jpeg.       Extra Info: Looking out toward CI Harbor's entrance.

    Thanks for the comments. The focal length is wrong it should be 100 mm. shot with my 100-400. No star filter was used, just much smaller aperture than its largest opening of 4.5, It was quite dark, so I went with the smaller opening for more depth of field, it was very hard to focus. The lights were blinking, so I went with a long exposure to get all three.

    Starburst filter? Looks familiar!

    I see the subject but wish it was somehow brighter.

    This is extremely dark on my monitor, and as a result has very little detail.

    Very dark. I think the image would be better balanced and composed using a landscape orientation with the light structure on the rocks near the bottom of the frame.

    The three lights and the rocks make for a nice composition. Might consider cropping off the bottom third, or else adding some Fill Light there to bring out more detail.
