Stunning images! Thanks for sharing. It's a shame that you would get a lot more responses if you were complaining about how your gear has let you down instead of how you went out and took great pictures.

Keep it up!

Thanks for looking. Appreciate it.

Re: D800 does Death Valley NP

Are your D800 reds rather muted before post processing like some folks say?   They sure stand out nice here!   Just curious since I might move up from my D700 to the D800.

Thanks,   Ernie

Great capture! I've been wanting to visit Death Valley for years. Keep them coming.

Death Valley is one of my favorite national parks. It is one of the biggest and plan enough time to explore.

WOW - love the photos. Can you share how you did the first photo? is that just one single shot? basically how did you get the stars and milky way in there so bright. I just finished some night shots in the desert but kept the iso lower than you--maybe thats part of the difference. Also was there a moon in the sky at the time?

the badwater shot is perfect also

i want to head out there around spring break with the kids, your shots are good motivation

This is a single shot and not a composite image. I use my 16-35 at F4 at 19mm. I think the zoom ring moved for some reason. My intention was to shoot at 16mm. ISO was 6400 with long exposure NR on so camera take another shot for 30sec with the mirror down. I set the focus manually at infinity. The most difficult part was to get the composition correct. I did many test shots before finalizing on the shot. Hope this helps.

This is a small blog I wrote if you are interested.
