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!

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

Thanks Michele, yeah, I agree on the lights being a distraction. I tried to remove them but they did so much painting it was impossible to remove them - it's actually a car with lights on full beam driving around

Respect. Observe. Capture. Enjoy.

These look great Simon, I like the trails, especially 14 where you managed to get the foxgloves in and how lucky were you to get the shooting star in 16! My favourite is probably 17 with the tree silhouettes with the milky way above, beautiful. And kudos for staying the extra hour for the stream photo!

Bs14 is a great shot Simon, love how it runs parallel to the milkyway. You might want to remove the streak of a plane or satellite to the right though.

Last two from me, this is a bench that overlooks the window, an inscription reads "Michaels Seat". A good bench for pondering the universe and everything in it I think.

Bs14

Oops, I've been a bit lazy in adding exif, quite low iso but in Bs11 there is a bit of star trail. The sky was still relatively bright then so I did a bit of fill in with my torch.

That boat was a real eye-catcher, I like the village (Tintagel) you included Simon.

I got a bit bored waiting for the stars to make an appearance, so tried a selfy using a head torch-

Bs10



Then at close to midnight-

Bs11



Voigtlander COLOR-SKOPAR 21mm F3.5 Aspherical
f/3.5 21.0 mm 30s 400 iso

Bs12



Samyang 14mm F/2.8 (probably) 25s 3200

Thanks Howard, I didn't know about it either and I live here
