Jul08 CN Imaging/Sketching Contest Winner!
Posted 16 August 2008 - 10:28 AM
On July 5, 2008 I had the pleasure of observing and photographing the stars at a local conservation area and dark sky site in Binbrook, Ontario, Canada. I imaged this scene with an unmodified Canon 40D, Sigma 17-70mm lens (17mm @f2.8) and standard camera tripod with no tracking. This is a stack of 15x20sec exposures @ ISO 800 on the Milkyway down to the tree line, and another single 20sec exposure on the rest of the landscape below to create a two frame composite. Stacking was done in Deep Sky Stacker and processing was done in PS with layers. I was really lucky that the the water was beautiful and still enough so that the stars casted a nice reflection in the water.
To all of you who took the time to stop by and vote for your favorite submission - thank you so much! Your participation really makes the contest!

It was a real pleasure to image that scene and you can imagine that feeling of excitement when it all starts to come together especially during processing. Here you can see the details on the image http://www.weatheran...&g2_itemId=1695 they are on the right side of the photo.
