A trial of a night shot, not marvellous, but a nice effect with the lightning in the clouds, as well as stars shing above [any thoughts??]


Sorry Golfer, forgot the Info : Canon 20D, iso 1600, exposure 6 seconds, f5.6

I like how the stars are visible as well as the cloud being all lit up.

I haven't taken any night/long exposure shots with my 20D yet.

You have inspired me - I will try to take one soon.

Hi there Craig, [do you ever work?? - should I ask myself the same question ??]

I missed a good one night before last where the full moon was rising, and just below it was a cloud similar to this with lightning in it, would have made an awesome pic [guess what, did not have my machine with me]

Hehe, sometimes. I'm a software developer and I work mostly from home, so I'm online all day. I check the forum before work, briefly at lunchtime and then in the evening too.

Great composition, JakeTPegg...

Love the two "themes" of "domestic tranquility" below with turbulence in the heavens.

Really nice image I am guessing a tripod was used.

The image info is embedded in the images exif data, so no real need to post it unless you clear the exif before posting the pic. The image's exif info can be viewed with a right click if you have the http://www.opanda.com exif viewer (free) plugin for IE/Firefox installed.

I take it digicamfan sneezed when posting that last message :blah:

Yes, this will give encouragement to those of us who have tried similair shots. Can't quite muster 1600 in the ISO, but makes me want to try the other settings. For a six second exposure I would have wondered about blur especially in the clouds during a storm, but this looks great. Thanks, best regards...
