smells like dead fish
« on: September 07, 2012, 02:26:20 pm »

I stepped on a dead fish taking this shot :(

c&c appreciated.
The rocks in the foreground are lit up by the full moon, made it hard to capture the star trails, but I like the effect.
(If your not a fan of star trails, then maybe comment on composition or something?)

Too many focus points for me. I'd lose the star trails since they aren't pronounced enough to really make the scene and probably lower the exposure time by 1/8-1/4.

I love it! Well I would if the star trails were cloned out, but that said the composition is excellent - foreground interest in the rocks, leading us over the water to the lights and their reflections, helped by the 'leading lines' effect of the shorelines taking the eye further into the distance; and the colours - WOW!

Thanks for posting.
