The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse of North Carolina.
|Submitted:||Tuesday, 18th October, 2011 02:04 (GMT)|
|Taken:||Friday, 29th July, 2011|
|Focal length:||10 mm|
|Shutter speed:||120 sec|
|Notes:||Not content with just silhouettes, my goal was to expose the lighthouse and foreground without long star trails. Since this is difficult, at least on a lens with a maximum aperture of f/4 and an aging body where ISO 800 is pushing it, I painstakingly cloned away some lengthy star trails in post to create pinpoint stars; all from a single exposure.|
