BTW, there is a strike going on at the local gravel, concrete plants, so now would be a good time to grab this pic.

A very special shot indeed.

Long exposures often produce excessive digital noise, but not in this case.

Now just get the company to purchase that shot for their walls and you'll be in business.

Killer shot!

Hi

3000 shots good going TZ and to think not a PIA 777, EK A330 or KLM MD11 to be seen (nice!).

Have been on a TZ night shoot and must say its amazing to see how much time goes in to a TZ shot.

Doing a night shot is as hard as putting stickers on a BAC 1.11 on a windy day!

The boss of Kenmore Air had the image on his desktop. He's a great guy, and loved the shot. I got a ride in the front-seat of a piston-engined Beaver floatplane. Everybody was very happy!  Smile

Thanks for the nice comments - the shot was really tricky, but seemed to come out quite well. As Mr Best said, rather like sticking 5 metre long logos onto a BAC1-11 in the wind (and rain)!

That is a brilliant shot! How did you keep the floatplane from moving on the water, oh I see the ropes tying it down and an extremely calm night with no wind.

Now if I can just get Lake Rotorua or Lake Taupo to oblige and at midnight would be a challenge. Freezing cold though!

Congrats on your 3000th and I look forward to many more.

Cheers,
Colin

Excellent shot. Hard to imagine the thing didn't move for 6 minutes.. I've tried shooting a couple of floaties with 10-20 second exposures in a little higher lighting but the waves always blur the aircraft.

I'm jealous! But I'll keep tryin!

Very lucky!
To find that the plane was absolutely still on the water during the time of the long exposure certainly pays off.
Congrats to the 3000 photo mark as well.
I wonder how many shots you had to take over and over to get that wonderful result? Especially if they were 6 minute or so each, plenty of time and patience put forth!

Also that company is on Lake Union or is it on Eliott Bay??

How is a six minute exposure performed? I would get confused at the fact that an extremely small aperture would be needed - to keep the light right. Were extra measures taken, such as filters of some discription? I'd love to know how such a shot is achieved.

Colin,

You need a tripod. A small aperture is not a bad thing (and might not be needed anyway)! I have shots taken with a shutter speed of 1 minute and an aperture of f/4. Turned out just fine.

Don't listen to the "always shoot at f/8" brigade. It's an urban myth that has infected Anet.

Ah dont be worrying lol i dont listen to that lot  Wink

I understand a tripod would be used, but 6 minutes just seemed like a very long exposure.

It is. But perhaps a very low ISO was used, who knows?
