Milky Way

Postby expat » Sat Aug 29, 2020 4:18 am

It has been quite a while since I posted here. These shots were taken a few weeks back during a holiday on Ile d'Oleron, France. Being an island the light pollution was very low. I managed to convince my boys to come out at 1 am and stand still, very still. The shots are 30 second exposures. After the first 10 seconds, I painted my boys in light from a torch or about 2 seconds......And believe it or not, these shots were taken with my mobile phone, a Huawie P30 pro.

Things have changed a bit..

Why are my pictures with labels about how many times they have been viewed, do I see that or everyone??
And why must I scroll the pictures to view them?

1. Captain, if the problem is not entered into the technical logbook.........then the aircraft does not have a problem.
2. And, if you have time to write the fault on a napkin and attach to it to the yoke.........you have time to write it in the tech log....see point 1.

Nothing has changed. You've attached the images instead of including them in the body of the post. Use the Upload Images button at the top of the page.

Yes, I thought Jupiter would bloom in the shot it was so bright and then diminish the effect of the Milky Way.

Lovely shots ..... just one slight critique ... a shorter torch flash would have given a less washed out look on your boys skin and allowed the eye to take in the whole scene as one.
