Challenge: Free Study 2007-04 (Expert Editing*)
Camera: Nikon D50
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D
Location: Blafjoll, Iceland
Date: Apr 4, 2007
Aperture: 1.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 30 sek

Date Uploaded: Apr 7, 2007

Post process: Converted twice from raw, one for the sky and one for the foreground. Used PS to combine the two "exposure" and added some curves on the sky and another one for the mountain. Used dodge to lit the stars a just little bit more and then I took a long time to post process the colors and I think this is the best of them all. But I not happy at all because I know I can do better.
I used my 85mm 1.8 lens and I know it isn't quite the best outside/landscape lens but it did good job on these 30 seconds.

Very cool - what's the lightsource for the mountain/hill there? I might consider editing the star trails back to points, but that's me.

This is nice albeit overdone here. The movement of the stars is the only downside here to an otherwise good shot.
