I don't know about that! I think the bench photos are a tad warm, but in general your exposure is much better to start with. I've pushed mine as far as I can without noise getting too offensive, but still not where'd I'd like them to be - especially that last one with the stream. I tried some light painting but the light was too strong. We live and learn...

That's it from me now for the meet. Was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and look forward to doing again sometime Simon

Gorgeous sets of images! A great outcome from a Simon & Simon mini-meet!

My favorites:
T2 - the long exposures creates a kind of "marble" effect in that phanastic blue sea - extraordinary.
T11 - wonderful minimalistic color contrast!
T14 - the star trails are perfect, IMO - then the marble blue of the sea and the marvelous foreground!

BS10 - best selfie seen in a long time!
BS11 - for me the most magical image in the set. I wonder whether a square crop around the visible part of the coast that is faced would be even more impressive (say 35 instead of 21mm).

Thanks Harald, I'll have a look at BS11, thanks for the suggestion!

Following some inspiration from @nandbytes to try some tracking stacking software, I've managed to rescue a series of shots I thought I'd lost to noise. It's not the greatest composition - needed to wait a bit longer for the moon to rise a little to paint the landscape and the milky way to pivot round a bit - but after spending 20 minutes capturing it I thought it deserved to see the light of day


A7Riii, Laowa 12 or 15mm
Stack of 25 x 15sec exposures at ISO 6400 Processed with Starry Landscape Stacker


And crop to get tighter on the Milky way:

Thanks. I also managed to reprocess the star trail series such as T14 using the same technique. Doesn't do a great deal for the sky but works wonders for the noise in the landscape:

T14 v2


T15 v2
