Stargazing at the Lighthouse

Image

These pictures were taken at a lighthouse driving down the highway 1 with a couple of friends of mine. We stayed past magic hour and waited for the stars to show a bit more. Took the pictures at 30 secs. shutter speed, and f5 500iso. I also played around with the WB. Since it was a clear night the pictures came out shockingly clear.

Set-Up: Nikon D7000, 17-55mm f2.8 lens, & a sturdy tri-pod.

Post Process: I first cooled the temperature a bit and added bit of sharpening and clarity for the stars to be a bit more intense. After just added a bit more color and adjusted the curves.

The Golden Gate

This was yet another random day, and a few wrong exits led to this mountain. The unexpected usually turns out good, as of lately. I never been this close to being alined with the top of the bridge. The view was even too beautiful to leave right away; my friends and I stayed for an hour.
