Tag a friend who might enjoy this Milky Way image and journey! --- From Wayne about this image: --- Stacked Blend Foreground: ISO 3200, 5 min., F/2.8, 14 mm Sky: ISO 10,000, 20 sec., f/2.8, 14 mm, stack This is a fun experiment using underwater Low Level Lighting. I’d always wanted to try this. These photos were taken on the Great Barrier Island in New Zealand, a Dark Sky Sanctuary. There is a small tidal pool in the foreground. In the first photo there is underwater Low Level Lighting. I used 3 small key chain LED lights with home made warming filters. I placed one light with same rocks into a plastic zip lock bag and placed each one into the small pool. The colors were beautiful but it was hard to get the light even. I kept moving the lights around but was pretty frustrated get the light even. Anyway, later I used the HDR function in Lightroom to combine all the uneven photos and wow (!), that evened the light out. Yeah!!! I did a little more evening out the exposure in PS. - Anyway, the first photo is with the pool illuminated from below, and the second photo is the same without the lights. I processed them a little different in Photoshop for aesthetic reasons. - By the way, the first phot has a long exposure foreground (rocks) and a stacked sky, and the second photo is just a stacked image throughput. - Which one do you like better, with or without the underwater lights?
