ms18: Fantastic picture

Thanks. It helps being on a veranda on the island of Santorini when the sun sets!

Maybe not high enough? Is so I'll withdraw.

On photo Schwabacher's Landing Star Trails in the Star Trails challenge (3 comments in total)

kkardster: I thought The Grand was somewhat west of Schwabacher's Landing, not north!

Well, clever in the compositional manner, but the image is obviously a layering of the mountains and foreground over a separate star trails image as clearly seen along the mountain edges. The mountains appear to have been shot in summer daylight as well as there are clearly shadows that shouldn't be there at night. I scored it lower than you due to the misleading title as I see nothing to make me believe these were actually "Schwabacher's Landing Star Trails".

Timmbits: @DPR, impressive, I am not so sure. it is merely a software mod. someone just had to think of it. as for higher res, you don't need to wait for 8k or whatever video to come out. processing power will get faster way before that. and all you will need is to implement another software update to use the whole sensor, and not just a crop of it.

but I really do like the idea. very nice feature.

time will tell, is if their software patent is enforceable, or if there are easy workarounds (like using the whole sensor for example). let's see what the competition does in this department. this might become an interesting feature in the enthusiast category.

I don't know why they limited this to 4K photo mode - perhaps to ensure that it can be applied across more frames than what the standard burst buffer might hold?

If they used the whole sensor along with burst mode, I can see where the image buffer might fill before the focus racking is completed and being left with partial results and a dissatisfied photographer. I guess it's a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Well done and very effective backdrop making it difficult to tell it wasn't the real deal.

tvstaff: I submitted a picture of a beautiful woman. I guess it depends on the "Big Boy".... Beautiful women have been "Big Boy" toys since the beginning of time. I guess alex326 can't understand the concept as he deleted my entry! Enjoy your plastic toys! <ROFL>

This challenge was supposed to be limited to pictures of a model. Did you provide proof that she was a model?

savonie: I thought this was for models - Not the real thing??

How did some of these even fit the challenge and remain allowed? At least the voters "righted the ship". [I always give 1/2 star for photos that don't fit the challenge.]

You shot reminded me of my brother's model cars. He had a dragster where he used thread for spark plug wires and cotton balls for burn out smoke. I almost expected to see your plane "landing" with the front gear off the ground and puffs of smoke coming off the rear wheels. Nicely done as-is!

Can those of us who read their manuals cover to cover even before we buy the camera enter if we use a feature we've never tried before?

Wish you'd have identified the original and whether or not you had "tanned" her.

Cool shot - looks almost like the opposite of single point color.

Based on the zero number of submissions, the ARW2 format shall apparently remain infamous.

Cool effect. I've used the StarStaX freeware program for similar - it includes a Comet Mode for its Gap Filling (i.e. star trails) stacking mode, but you've got more control. I like how your "head" appears white-hot, followed by red-hot tails.

On photo Jewel Bug in the Stacking Exposures challenge (2 comments in total)

Nicely done. Since you were hand-held, did you purposely lean in to force the focal plane to move or did you simply rely on hand-holding jitter for that?
