Catching up on your thread. You have some wall hangers here. The pier, lighthouse and skyline are superb.
Beautiful. Love the dreamy feel.
Thanks, all!Great composition—almost suggests a miniature landscape.
Yes, it's a nice astrophotography "fallback" shot, which is to say it is rather easy to get a good result with even a completely unplanned and casual effort such as this one. (I happened to notice it was clear out and just set up a tripod on the back porch, squeezed off two exposures, skipped the dark frames, did a quick and dirty postprocessing of them in Lightroom, and combined them in StarStaX). I have no doubt that you could do just as well or better on your first try.Very neat star trail shot. I've always had it in my mind to try it. Have you done it before?
Love the curvature.
Cool perspective, nice waves.
Nice shoreline shot.
True, but it can be done with a larger number of shorter exposures. And I'll bet you can find some interesting foreground compositions at your latitude and the HK skyline - I hope you get a chance to give it a go!Beautiful star trail shot. It's something I would like to try but it's difficult in the city because of light pollution.
OEM Nikon batteries do great for long exposures. Aftermarket batteries are also fine in the Z6, with a bit shorter life in my experience. Either one can get you a couple hours of cumulative exposures.How did the battery do on those exposures?
You definitely should! It really is very rewarding.I may give this a try on a dark clear night
