    Star Trails - Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge Nashville TN

    First time capturing some star trails. It was fun and at the same time chilly.

    C&C welcome

    Excellent Chriss. Superbly constructed image with all the elements fusing together to make a wonderfully dramatic image.

    Looks good to me too Chriss, although I might be tempted to see how it looked with the light trails from the cars toned down a bit, as they draw my eye straight to them due to the colour and intensity.

    Thanks guys. I was pretty happy with the result on my first try. Few tweaks on post process just and good guidance from this forums just made it better.

    Who knows??? Maybe they are Nissans coming out of the Smyrna plant at full throttle

    This is a wonderful image! And re the several versions, for me the second works better. On the third the car lights are too low for me.

    Chriss, can you tell us the EXIF data for the image??

    Sure!

    Manual Mode
    Aperture: f/8.0
    Exposure: 20
    ISO Speed: 3200
    Focal Length: 10mm

    Lens was on manual focus. It was very hard to focus in because it was so dark and what we did was, where there's a Ford car that pass by we focus in on it and locking it by flipping it to manual focus on the lens.

    I could have done 30 second exposures and drop the ISO but I forgot ::blah::
