Back to the Boat Shed!
Went back to Mosman Park this afternoon, to try and get some decent shots to better the shot from this morning. Luckily the nice clouds came back through. I got there at about sunset and this is one of the first panos I took down there. It’s a 7 image stitch. I had to crop it more than I would have like to as the lens was zoomed out a little to much.
Lucky for me once the sun was down the bright city lights lit up the clouds again. I have seen the sky do this a few times, and I was lucky for it to happen this morning (which is the reason I got out for a shoot) and luckier that it happened again tonight. I find with soft smooth bottomed clouds show this ‘glow’ the best.
This photo took 16 minute to capture. It is a 4 image stitch, each exposure being 4 mins long (a lot of waiting around with two black swans). There isn’t to much noise but because it was so dark it is a tiny bit out of focus.
The clouds have a very visible red tint to the naked eye, but once your exposures get over 30 seconds this is what you get. It’s had some level and contrast adjustments in PS. I had a torch with me which I used to ‘paint’ the jetty and boat shed. I wish it were a stronger torch so I could have used it for focusing purposes. But if I hadn’t used this to light the boat shed it would have been much redder, and I also used it on the water to get better exposure.
Oh yeah did I mention i got mealed by hundreds of huge mosies?!?
