    Thanks Guy... Good idea about the streak .....the 800e seems to do well with these long exposures. Eleanor

    Its seems to do very well for these type of shots. Need to get out and try some myself, I'm really in the perfect spot for stars here in the desert.

    Fun with D800 Photos

    John, I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but could it be that what you see has to do with the unusual amount of dynamic range in the D800 files ?

    I have never before seen dynamic range like this in files from any other digital cameras that I have tried out.


    Maybe keep an eye on the histogram in post and then try to work with Levels and Curves bringing the black and white points closer to the edge of the histogram ?

    Or maybe try to add some more contrast ?


    I hope the more knowledgeable post processing folks will chime in here if I'm totally wrong assuming that it might have to do with the dynamic range ... ?

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    With more DR images will have a much wider tonal range and will appear flat. This is a good thing but you can bring up your black point to add the contrast back in. It's really a matter of taste and working with your levels but as default with the High DR range images will be flatter , no question. That's the starting point than one needs to make adjustments as needed. The image I posted above with wedding on beach is far from looking flat and I lower the contrast by default with the D800e by about 4 points in C1 and sometime bump up shadow recovery.

    Hi Guy,
    I'm wondering how did you manage to take that picture, it looks camera is
    less than a foot from the ground, did you use any type of right angle finder,
    and how did you focus manually.
    Best,

    It's the building I was in at the hotel . My room overlooked the roof line of the floors below me to the ocean front. It's from my balcony in my room. Kind of strange setup but I could fully see and enjoy my ocean view. So bird was pretty much just below eye level.

    Lovely image Eleanor. I believe a shooting star would have produced a much longer streak in 30s, after all they last only a moment. You may have caught the International Space Station whose orbit passes over MT . You can check a NASA site:

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Tom thanks for the suggestion and link. Actually on another of my shots taken in Colorado there were several of these streaks in the same photo. I don't think they were planes because I could see the blinking lights of the planes with my naked eye. The streakes in the actual image were quite dim. Eleanor

    The ISS is very bright. Bright as one of the brightest stars in the sky. I think its a meteor.

    learn a lesson here, I would usually not use 14mm for shots like this but it proves me wrong.
    Nice shot!

    Steen, I think you're right on with the dynamic range theory. In retrospect it is better to start with a flat file as a template. Eleanor, your star field is amazing!

    I haven't posted in a LONG while. Was in Germany at the Holy Ghost Church in Heidelberg. My parents were married in this church 57 years ago this year. They were along for the trip and it was nice to see them reminisce. I'll be making them a print for their anniversary. Just thought I'd share . . .

    Very nice image. Sounds like a good experience. I love to take my parents around to places from their past as well.

    Frankie: All these pictures from Mongolia are impressive. I really like this latest one, and the use of shallow depth of field here really works well. I also like the quote... honestly, it's something I need to remember just now.

    More with the D800e, this time waterfalls from the famous Beartooth Highway, Wyoming and Montana. First shot with the 85 1.4 lens and second with my 35 1.4 lens, both using a 1.8 ND filter. Eleanor

    Eleanor,

    The D800 is GREAT with long exposure shots. I actually bought mine just for this purpose and for IR (mine's modified). As a tool for night and long exposures it really is excellent. Not too shabby at the rest of time either btw. (still prefer my IQ160 though )

    Hi graham, I have the P65+ and with long exposures I get lots of hot pixels so I find my 800e to be better for very long exposures. Eleanor

    I really like your compositions... I'm curious if the color cast in the water,(vertical image) in the 35mm 1.4 photo was added?

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Really not sure about the color cast. I probably need to rethink my processing but I do know there is some naturally occuring aqua color to the water and that may be what you are seeing. The slight magenta cast shouldn't be there tho...I need to take more time and process more carefully when I go to make a print!! eleanor
