Challenge: Flora At Night (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Date: Aug 3, 2013
Aperture: 4.0
ISO: 1250

Self portrait during a father/son camping trip to the Sierras. I had planned to do just the silhouette shot but after seeing how the flashlight made some cool beams I thought this might be better. There was no moon so the stars were bright but even so, 30 seconds barely registered any detail. But, some curves and levels adjustments along with pushing the exposure another couple of stops in lightroom recovered enough detail to use.

Thanks for the votes and comments. Always fun to win a ribbon!
