Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Long Exposure II (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Keriš, South Iceland
Date: Nov 4, 2006
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 108 sec
Galleries: Landscape, Astrophotography
Date Uploaded: Nov 5, 2006

Taken 26 minutes after midnight so technically on the 4th of November. Anyway, taken under a full moon, hence the colors in the sky and landscape, it was extremely bright. Had wanted to take this shot with a longer shutter but right behind me there was a rainstorm brewing and just a minute after this shot was taken I nearly got drenched. Only light affecting this shot is the moon.

The white line going through the picture is a car driving through the landscape and that yellow bright spot on the right side is a small town lighting up the clouds.

Post processing was a seperate curves adjustment on the sky, shadow/highlights, curves again on the whole shot, a little burning and sharpening after resizing.

this is really nice. Great landscape here, looks like a crater. Is it? the sky and clouds are unique, I never had a sky like this with all the long exposures I take. 7

Impressive image. Almost looks surreal. It looks as though you lost some clarity during resizing, and I would like to have seen more detail in the right corner foreground. Great range of colors, light, and you really capture a sense of time in this photo.

All on scale of 0-2
Focus: 2
Lighting: 2
Composition: .5 (IMO this is the only weak spot in this photo. It looks too evenly divided between sky and land, despite stars in "rule of thirds" position)
Creativity: 1.5
Wow Factor: 1

Total: 7

This is incredible. Great wide angle. The vista is stunning and the blues and brown tones compliment each other nicely with all of the clouds and stars' light tones to give it a lift. Beautiful work.
