Challenge: Day Taken At Night (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Pentax K-5
Lens: Sigma 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro for Pentax
Location: Okemos, MI
Date: Mar 9, 2011
Aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 400
Shutter: 47 sec
Date Uploaded: Mar 10, 2011

Taken at 8:30pm...well past sunset. It's too bad there was a little wind - you can see the movement in the tree branches.

No high expectations for this one, probably in the mid-5s. My gut says that William88 will take this challenge with a mountain scene and a bazillion star trails. :-)

Well I was waaay off the mark in guessing the score.

I'm loving the new K5 - I don't believe I've used NR in PP'ing since buying it. If I had taken a 47 second exposure at ISO400 with my old K10, NR would be the norm.

Not a lot of pp'ing on this one. Minor ACR adjustments, crop, b&w. That's pretty much it. Score took me by surprise - that's for sure.

Excellent. I rarely grow tired of lonely tree image in monochrome. The added human element makes this unique in it's use. Captivating and let's my imagination run. 9
