The wise old one by prperold The wise old one by prperold
Had some fun with night shots.

This is a 5 minute shot. Fired the flash a few times from each side with a warming gel.

Had to do some serious noise reduction in the sky.

For those that were wondering, the reason some of the small star trails are segmented, is because (I think) clouds moved in front of the stars for a part of the exposure, thus blocking the light.

I see that I have reached 10k page views. Thanks for all the support :)

Cos the cool subject's there alright, and the compo is nice, but it's just the colors...

i noticed after i already posted.
and hell - once i'm not a dude! and second - maybe a "thanks for telling me - but if you didn'T notice it's written in the comment box that i went with a friend."
i hope some person will someday copy your image and noone will tell you. you are very welcome! sorry for wasting your time by posting a comment which was intented to be good! thanks for the kick in the ass...i guess i will always hate this piece now....thanks for destroying the enjoyment of an arpiece

"dude look at artist comment at photo what you post..."
i was friendly - i wanted to inform you in case someone copys your image and you are saying that? is what you posted particularly "friendly"? i wanted to do something good to you and you reply in a really not nice way. - how you wrote sounds like "how stupid or ignorant are you?" - so that's why i don't write back "i love your gallery" ;-) what i actually did before your unfriendly reply. i just wanted to be nice since i think it happenes often enough images get copied.
and just your "what ever" - do you think your answers are nice? i only wanted to inform you. do something nice! is anything you wrote nice? aprreciating, that someone seems to care and wants to help? no. you talk to me like i'ma n idiot.

yes, i didn't like your reply.
and no, you're not my "enemy" :hug:
you know, i just wanted to help since i've seen it happens quiet often. i thought it's a nice thing to do. i didn't expect i would get flaped in my face for writing that and that a discussion starts :confused:

Wow! Impressive! It is only one still, and still, has the whole feeling a whole time lapse from Tom Lowe ([link] do you know him?) has too.

Oh, I think this was confusing, right?

I'm really amused by this shot. It is kinda what I tried to accomplish here: [link] but I didn't succeed... Bad nasty clouds, and my tree was so weak! Well... I think it's a whole different concept anyway!

Well, sorry for babbling, I'm going to (no, I HAVE to) check your gallery!
