Silent Night

August 4th, 2012

Taken on a night with a full moon at Lake Wakatipu, near Queenstown, New Zealand. The view was crystal clear and very bright. So I went for a 30-second long exposure, ISO 400 at f/2.8. Made it almost look like daylight...

Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED.

Photo Settings: 14mm, f/2, 30 seconds, ISO 400.

Map: -44.8673, 168.3918

Wow. Amazing, perfect atmosphere. Love your work, no wonder it gets voted through so quickly. My desktop is practically a rotation of your work :)

Thanks Marts! I was also wondering why it went so quickly (in a good way). ;-)
There are a couple of very nice wallpapers in the loupe, that I'm looking forward adding to my wallpaper rotation!

Also I think that the average quality of loupe submissions has improved a lot compared to earlier times!

Very bright image. It is very hard to make such a great exposure like this photo has. There is no sense of difference between sky and land. Very great effort.

One day I want to take photos like this ^^

This is just, breath-taking. I'm so impressed that this image could be that bright. I've tried taking photos with long exposures, but they weren't so attractive. Amazing!
And i'm wondering, did you make the darker border in the sky in photoshop? Could you tell me how to do it? Thanks.

Thank you! I must say, I shot this picture during the "super-moon" night. The night was really exceptionally bright. The "border" or "vigniette" has been done in Photoshop by going to Filter/Lens Correction and then select the "custom" tab. There is the menu item "Vigniette" in the middle on the rhs where you can in- or decrease the amount of vignietting. Just play around with it and you'll see the effect.
