Default Please Give Your Vote

I held a photography workshop last week on light painting at night. 4 students took the 2 hour training with me on location at a historical land mark just west of Calgary.

I asked the 4 students if they could submit their best photo of that night to me so that I could post them here for your feedback. They had never tried this type of photography before and they all enjoyed learning this technique.

In the very least, please vote for the best photo submitted.

Thank you very much. It means a lot to the students.

Glad you are getting to share your wealth of knowledge with others locally.

I personally like number 2 the best.

Did you shoot any while you were there so we can see how the master did?

No problem seeing the constellation Orion along with Pleiades. Each pic has a quality I like about it. Too bad one pic didnt have all the qualities. I like the sky in #2, everything in #1 except for the use of fisheye lens. In #3 the stars look like they were added later and there is no color. #4 is lacking the details. If I had to pick one it would be #1. Then I would fix it by removing the lens distortion.

Thanks for all the comments! Mark, I was going to photograph that night but had to give a piece of my tripod to another student. So the camera stayed in the truck :0( Oh well, we all had such a great time and I have another workshop this Saturday photographing another old church at sunrise.

Bynx, the student who photographed #1 rented a wide angle 10.5mm 2.8 prime lens for her D40 Nikon. I could have altered the horizon for her but if I work on her photo then I'd have to work on the others then what your seeing doesn't represent their work. I did however look at her photo with the horizon straightened out and it looks quite amazing for a first attempt shot! The 2.8 lens really is in a class of it's own because it's the best for this type of photography. Unfortunately, your stuck with the fisheye look. But of course a little Photoshop and it's all straight.

I believe the other lenses were the f3.5 - 5.6, 18 - 55 range.

I like 1 the best. A starlit sky just screams fisheye.
4 would be nice with either the steeple or the 3 windows just dimly illuminated, that would ring Christmas.

Vote for just one, not an easy task. There are four very different styles of the same scene and are all very good. #3.
