Morning tide

Posted by
Spike (not Bristol, United Kingdom) on 13 December 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

Saturday morning. Chilly after a clear night, and a stiff breeze just to make it interesting. The moon was a few hours away from being eclipsed, and given that it's winter, it would set in the north-west. And, of course, the tide was going to be fairly high.

So there was only one place to be, really, even if it was stupid o'clock in the morning.

Oloneo Photo Engine. Trying not to be too surreal, but then, it's a long exposure, so it's not going to be "realistic" anyway.

Thanks for stopping to take a look.

Some great elements to this - the moon, clouds, stars and reflection. Would be tempted to crank up Oloneo a bit more, defish a little, straighten the horizon and crop out the foreground and lhs light pollution. Just to see how it looks, you understand...

@digitalCG: Funnily enough, I do have one along those lines, taken at the wide end of the kit lens. Horizon is a bit weird at this spot: there's a curve in the sea wall, the far shore recedes quite a lot from right to left, and there's a lot of hills. The camera's pretty much level (despite the K-5's wonky gauge), but the horizon is a tad below the centre of the frame, so it's slightly dished. My major screw-up on this trip was not to turn on the auto dark-frame subtraction, hence all the stuck pixels dotted around.

Surprised you're getting hot pixels at such a short exposure - my K-5 certainly doesn't suffer to any noticable extent. Have you tried the built in pixel mapping function? Or converting the RAW in a sympathetic converter like ACR and saving to TIF before letting loose in Oloneo?
