    Need a Title

    I'm not normally one for titles on my photos, but this one really needs one I think...

    Need a Title

    The view is of Yosemite's famed Tunnel View... but 180 degrees from where folks are normally looking (which you can see in my P52 post.

    I took some shots of the valley with the Milky Way overhead, and then when I turned to go back to the car, I saw this view (well, sort of... the tunnel doesn't look like that normally), and instantly knew that the long shutter speed to get the sky exposed would blow out the tunnel lights... I just wasn't prepared for how cool it would end up looking.

    The whole scene has a very primordial feel to it to me.

    Any suggestions on titles?

    Indeed, very nice image and not a bad name (primordial) in itself.

    Ahh yes, I did see this. I was unsure just what I wanted to say other than well done and that it is something I have wanted to give a go and have yet to do so. I think this may have been improved slightly had the tunnel been only slightly lit to leave a glow with more detail, being a tunnel that may not have been within your control.

    As it is, I like it.

    I love the sky, and there is a little bit of detail in the foreground, certainly to the right, which i also prefer to stark silhouettes. I just find the light in the tunnel too much. For me it is too bright and too distracting.

    "OK Bright Spark, so you've invented fire!" Love the sky and agree that if the tunnel could be toned down it would really add to the image.

    I did take a second frame with the tunnel less over-exposed with the intention of merging the two, but I found it was not exposed enough. I specifically wanted it to blur the tunnel to a featureless opening - though perhaps a little less so than it is now (as it seems others are requesting). I'll see what I can do about toning it down some. It is definitely not something that would work in a single exposure.
