    Pentax K-X, Sigma 18-50 f2.8 EX DC

    Star trails over the John Knill monument, St.Ives. Single exposure, 32.4 minutes, f2.8, ISO 400. The bloom is from the town's streetlights. Unfortunately the other directions were just as polluted, with light from Hayle and Cambourne, a ship lit up in the bay and a holiday park with what appeared to be search lights and guard towers.

    Single exposure, watched an episode and a half of the IT Crowd on the Zen then closed it down and left the camera switched on while walking home (it took a while for it to process the shot and write it to the memory card.)

    These photos are a few weeks old but I've just finally gotten around to PP.

    First up, we had a rare clear night so I tried my hand at a moon shot. This was shot handheld from the roof of my apartment complex with the following gear & settings:
    Canon 500D
    EF 70-200 f/4L IS @ 200mm
    f/5.6
    1/2000 sec
    ISO 800
    [​IMG]


    Next, we have a nice sunset over the Pacific Coast from Sutro Baths. I love this picture but it doesn't even begin to do the scene justice. It was by far the most amazing sunset I've ever witnessed! :jawdrop:
    Canon 500D
    EF 17-40 f/4L @ 32mm
    f/8
    1/60 sec
    ISO 100
    .9ND HE Grad to hold back the sky

    Enjoy! :thumb:

    An old 50mm f/2 lens off a Zennet 12xp. Sat on the lens cap to keep it still.
    Used a black sheet of glass to achieve the reflection, and a white sheet for the background.

    First photo I've uploaded in quite some time - I've been taking quite a few photos, but haven't had the time to process them. I'm only now getting around to it!

    [​IMG]

    The Seven Sisters at dusk

    CPL, 0.6 hard grad for sky, 0.3 soft grad for the bottom left hand side. I used a handheld spot meter to calculate exposure, taking several meter readings in key areas. There's a blue pole from an electric fence that was distracting/annoying me in the scene at actual luminance and I wanted to get rid of that without stepping over the edge of the cliff or reducing FOV. What's more, it looked more dramatic with the unlit grassy area darkened slightly.

    @ NiHiLiST - Great shot! Looks right out of Super Paper Mario. :thumb:

    We had some major storms pass through this weekend that brought with them some rare and dramatic clouds. I took this shot just as the sun poked through the clouds and lit up the southern half of the bridge; and about 5 minutes later I got completely soaked by the next storm. :duh:

    Great shot Ligoman, though I feel it would have improved it if you were closer to the bridge, thus removing the light green foliage at the bottom of the picture. As a result it would have given more focus on the bridge and sunlight.

    Impressive lighting though, sounds like you had fun taking it!

    Taken at a gig last night - it looks a bit over-processed now I've compressed it to jpg and has an annoying pinkish hue on this monitor, I'll probably revisit it in the week. 450D + nifty.

    Ahhhh, Bunny!

    The first girl looks impressively larger than the rest...Mutant? Just kidding...but she does seem huge.

    Some nice pics, as usual, guys!
