    Default Night Shot in Perth



    In what area is critique to be sought?
    Framing, Composition, color

    2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    Included the landscape to complement the sky and stars

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    shot at 10pm, F-4, ISO 250, Exposure 61secs

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    It being the first time I have shot a landscape photo. I thought it was pretty okay, initially, I wanted to just take photo of the stars, but I couldnt get a good shot and felt that the sky and stars were very 'flat'. So I included the ground hoping to complement the sky.

    Maybe you want to try using ND filter? A 9-stop would have a better trails of the stars and making sure the lights at the bottoms are not overblown. Look for the North star as your centre point, you will be able to achieve a better result.. hope it help..

    this location got potential for star trails, however i will omit out the lower part of the photo and look for a single subject (be it a lone tree or building) and using the sky (shot star trails) as backdrop.

    some examples:
    Star Trails - 11/27/2008 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
    star trails | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Hi, I am aware that for star trails, i need an extremely long exposure time. How do I achieve that? I was looking for an external power source, but it seems to all be extremely bulky.

    U just need a fully charged good working battery.

    U dun shoot a super long exposure. I dun recommended dat.

    U can instead shoot a series of shorter long exposures (like time lapse) then stack them into a single photo.

    You may want to get an intervalometer to control the timing (be it single long exposure or multiple shots for stacking). For a longer power source, can consider using a grip.

    How does this picture evoke Perth? It looks like it could be from anywhere.

    Well, you could just label it as 'star trails in Perth', probably just aim your photo towards the sky and minus off the green landscape.
    I bet the stars are much more interesting than the green pastures...

    Sorry can I confirm the light trail is actually star?
    With 61sec can produce such long star trail?
    I thought it was aeroplane flying pass by.
