Fire and Stars by KoNE Fire and Stars by KoNE
Picture was taken with my Asahi Pentax K1000, SMC PENTAX-M 50mm lens. Exposed about 45 minutes at f4 on Kodak Max 400 film. I like this, it's very violent and cosmic at the same time. The opposition of cold and warm colours. The green on the low horizon is amazing. Long exposures really lower colour temperature. Pictures taken at night sometimes have these sort of interesting effects to offer.

Amazing! Composition is perfect, and I like the lights through the trees. The contrast with the cooler colors in the sky is just right.

I've been itching to get into photographing star trails, and this further fuels my fire. :)

I asked because, see the top right and left, how it's darker? Looks like something blocked the light.

You're lucky with the lack of light pollution. Any worthwhile picture for me has to be touched up in photoshop. They turn out allright in the end:

but usually come from the camera with a nice tint of yellow...:(

Ohh, maybe I didn't use a lens hood but I remember using my wideangle lens one one of my two stars pictures. If it's this one (I should carry a log sheet...), the vignetting might be caused by the optics' quality. Over long exposures it's bound to show up.

I like it, very good. Do you have a lens hood on? I noticed that right off.
Great pic, and without much light pollution, except the green, that looks good.
Really a cool picture.

Lens hood? You mean those cone shaped things you screw on your lens? I don't think so. I think I got off without light pollution because I was far enough up north (four hours from Montreal) and was cloudless night (so no diffused light).

Thanks for your comment! I had never thought about managing light pollution! ^^ (I'm quite an arch-beginner at stellar photography.)
