Wide angle makes the bike a bit too apparent, though. Other shots were much less conspicuous.

On the way home from the grocery stores. I didn't actually expect the long exposure to make that kind of inferno out of the cooling tower vapour.

By the way, Bill: "***10/20/2019-10/20/2019 Sunday Weekly Show, Tell, and Critique***" seems like a rather short date span: is it really intended to be just this Sunday?

Thanks for pointing it out Dak

Thanks for putting out the correction.

Why don't you just turn the bike some to the left?

For one thing, I didn't notice it (framing in the dark is not really great on the DSC-R1).  For another, this is a comparatively narrow path and I was queasy about putting my bike's full broadside across it with the camera on in case somebody happened to come that way (I likely could have just moved the bike aside in time and restarted after waiting for the exposure and dark exposure to finish).

So basically a case of messing up, better luck next time.
