The everyday of our family farm
Looks ok to me.
Brilliant first effort.
Oh wow.How did you do that?
This photo is made up of 26 photos taken one after the other over 15 minutes. Each photo has an exposure of 10 seconds. Then it is a matter of stacking the photos one on top of the other in a software program to show the stars movement. I don't have Photoshop or any fancy software but I did find this awesome (and free) downloadable program called StarStax that is purely for creating star trails.It is incredible how much the earth moves in relation to the stars in that amount of time, given that can't really see it with the naked eye!
Thanks for sharing the "how I did it!" I don't think I have the settings to do it, but I'll have to double check. Very cool!
Really fabulous photo Lynda! Love your new header too :D0
I haven't come across that setting on my camera. I am impressed. The stars travel in circular motion.....no, it is Earth that is turning, not the stars. That makes sense, but I kind of thought that went across the sky. We can faintly see stars here. Light overwhelms them. I remember sitting on the deck of a houseboat on the Murray and seeing a gazillion stars in the sky. It was magical. http://highriser.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/hello-sailor.html
I was surprised by the arc of the circle that the star trail formed, and the movement is counter-clockwise. For some reason I was expecting it to be clockwise.
Not really thinking this through, but maybe it is because Earth turns clockwise that stars go anti clockwise?
I think you have done a great job. Well done Diane
Amazing shot! Even more amazing when I read how you put it together.
Great shot! Amazing.
What a great effect! Interesting to read how you did it!!!
Your having fun here I can see.....
I think it is wonderful!
That is very clever of you - well done.
I'm impressed. I tried a few such photos when I lived near Napier but, ironically, although we were behind the hills above the city the light from the city really interfered with my feeble attempts.
This is so nice photo-art. Good for you.
