Non-Av Pic Thread Q4 2013

Sat Oct 05, 2013 6:55 am

Nearly a week into October so it's time for a new thread folks! Maybe the mods could lock the other thread to avoid any confusion like the last time. I'll start the ball rolling: while summer is great for pics, autumn can throw up some interesting and atmospheric ones:

I went to the "Garden of light" in Montreal few weeks ago. Here are the Lanterns:

Thanks guys, I just wished I had come to the Garden when it wasn't competely dark. It's always better to have a bit of perspective behind the subjects. But I had free tickets (they usually cost $25) and only one opportunity, so I'll try again next year

It has its own special atmosphere as it is; I'm not sure if the surroundings would have added to it.

Great photos again everyone! I especially love the "fall leaves" photo and the Northern Lights.

I've recently been on the aviation tour in North Korea, but shot plenty of non-av photos. It's a lot to link here, so I will just link to the website where they're at. I've added them to my trip report about the 7 days in North Korea, so if you're interested in that, feel free to read!

(note: there are a few aviation photos in it, but the vast majority is non-av)

Very nice dude! So you took the pic of the Northern Lights in Red Lake? I take it you work there? I fly to Red Lake all the time. If you're around the field I'll come by and say hi. (Thanks to Facebook, I could creep on you...) Seems like we have a few friends in common.

Was in Washington DC this past weekend. My brother works for the Washington Nationals (baseball team), and he took us into the stadium. Very cool! Couple panoramas from inside (unfortunate about the shadows, but not much I could do):

It's nearly November the 5th so some fireworks this weekend.

Give 3 kids some sparklers and let them wave them around for a minute or so

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/oly720man/fw3.jpg

Various fireworks.



Using my 8-15 at its widest setting for the next one.







This was meant to be the star of the show with 10 tubes launching in succession, but only 3 went off.



Interesting patterns though.

Exposures 30s to over 1 minute at f8, 100ISO.

I found a tutorial on Adobe's website about image stacking in Photoshop, and put it to the test on some shots last night. Works very well for star shots, to remove noise and such. I think this was 7 or 8 exposures stacked. I kinda like the alignment effect, where the stars are fixed but the ground is blurry.

There are around 6 to 8 deep-sky objects visible in this photo (along with Venus quite prominently in the center):

The Moon, Venus, and globular cluster M22 forming an almost-perfect triangle last night. Also visible are M8, NGC6530, M20, M21, and M28. It's an HDR of an image stack and a single image (and cropped in quite a bit). It was a bit cloudy, unfortunately:

Having swapped the misfiring firework we got another one that worked as it should.



Still managed to not quite get the whole effect, even with a fisheye.


And for something completely different. Water drops as frost on the washing line melted.

You can actually see some faint Milky Way in this shot (quite unusual for LA), heading up at about 1 o'clock from Venus. Various clusters and nebulae in there somewhere:

LOL! I actually thought this one was kind of cute . . .

To each his own. Cute is not the word I'd use to describe an idiot who thinks it's cool to look like a decomposing corpse!

Got up at 4:30 AM on Saturday and Sunday to try and catch comet ISON. Saturday was cloudy; managed to barely capture it (I think) on Sunday:

I may have a go if I feel suitably enthusiastic to get up that early in the morning. Maybe next weekend. It's meant to be getting colder over here so that will hopefully mean clear skies.

Trust me, I'm the least enthusiastic person I know when it comes to getting up in the morning, never mind getting up earlier than usual! Hopefully you'll have better luck than I did - after all, I live in a very light- and air-polluted area.

A lucky shot for me here - I was taking multiple images of M22 for stacking purposes, and a faint satellite happened to cross the frame in one of them (didn't see it until I looked at the images on my computer):

Here are a few more from my photography branding portfolio that I thought were kind of interesting: I particularly like the one of the girl sitting down in the white chair with the red lipstick:

A few more from a shoot I did last night. I have a TON from this shoot, and part of it was done in a hangar with a ton of corporate jets in it. Haven't finished editing those yet.

A new stacked shot of the Andromeda Galaxy, stacked and edited using DeepSkyStacker. The galaxy is a lot larger than I thought, and you can see a couple faint dust lanes in the disc (just above the central bulge):

When I got out there, this owl was already sky-watching from up on top of the cellphone tower. Scared the crap out of me when s/he first hooted, as I couldn't see him/her and it's pretty loud!

I'm always impressed, Braybuddy. You have a keen eye for sniffing out interesting photos in what many others (a.k.a. me   ) would consider very ordinary scenes/situations.

Not too much new for me, but I did take my best image to date of the Orion Nebula last night. It's composed of about 86 exposures, stacked using DeepSkyStacker and further edited in PS:
