I added some shots to the samples thread a few week back but you can't really discuss much there and can't post cropped ones either.

So I decided to post a selection of long exposures I tried during Chrismas break.

All taken with A7RIII, 24mm f/1.4 GM

It's a stunning lens in pretty much in every respect. Never seen such well designed lens that kinda ticks every box - small, fast, weather sealed, light, good ergonomics etc.

#1


#2


#3


#4 - this not a long expose but just an obligatory shot from the London eye


Change of scene - taken in Cambridge
#5


#6


#7

Most impressive set indeed. Looking forward to seeing lots more from you with this combination.

Very nice. I really like the first, even though I feel I should like the second more as it cuts out a couple of slightly distracting edge elements. I think it is because of the dead space above the wheel in the second and the longer line of trees drawing the eye in the first.

I think I like the 12 point sunstars in #5 more than the abundantly pointed stars of the 24/1.4 but that is definitely a matter of taste. The 24/1.4 sunstars are certainly striking.

What's the source of the large amount of green in the last two. I can't decide whether I like it with the blue or not, but it is certainly (like the sunstars) striking and not boring!

Good fun indeed! MAybe the last few are slightly tilted but still impressive to look at with the smooth reflections and interesting colours.

With the first few, I rather like the way the people managed to stay almost still. Ghostly but not transparent.... I like #3 the best. The lack of colour (split tone?) lets us focus on the details without being overwhelmed by the light.

    The sunstar are certainly very nice and to my taste

    I think the lights were actually green! TBH it was so dark, I couldn't really see the lights lol. Focussing and composing was rather hard and it came out green after correcting for white balance.

    Thanks, I am still conflicted about the colours myself. As I mentioned above I was shooting in complete darkness, so i didn't really know how it'd turn out
