Great Signal-Womb 2009-05-21 15:43

A fantastic and memorable shot Gary and seen it in print, well done m8. I am not a big fan of star-trails but in the right context it works to great effect. Tried this technique in March and kind of got it right (fogged lens) but my suspicious actions aroused the "locals" and I got a visit from police the next day asking a few questions. Your a busy man, never stop taking photos :) Iv had to take a long break to refresh and catch up on a lot of stuff at home. So its back to sensor cleaning, raw files and sore eyes in front of computer :)

Best Regards Steve.

Default To Signal-Womb: Cheers Mate

Thanks Steve, must get out and try another one soon. Although hopefully without the police escort. I take it they believed you were innocent of any crime ;-)
Its good to take a break and i did think i hadnt seen much of you lately. Have you given up on epz?

All the best

The "locals" saw my car parked late at the legananny dolmen (back end of nowhere)at about 11pm at night I had done the torch bit earlier and was wanting a 60min exposure of 30 secs etc. Two guys approached in jeep and asked what the hell I was doing! pepper spray at the ready I replied "taking pictures" of course they did not understand and next morning police arrived at door asking questions.. I felt like telling them to bugger off as if Id done anything wrong.

I dont know about EPZ? Now that TE is messed up abit and not really a photo site as such Il have to see. If I do go to EPZ like BOB Il pay the annual subscription as the 600 pixel limit is to small to show the images at there best. Im so lazy it takes me ages to make a move on anything. Iv Raw files on my hard drive since March Iv never even processed yet and the website needs so updated. I removed the mounts option from website as everyone wants it mounted different ways with different fonts, God.

Anyhow Il get back on track sooner or later. Had a nice break in Scotland from all the DIY jobs at home and got a few nice pictures from that trip although at £200 to get over there its always a bit of a gamble weather wise. I see you went first week in May, good time as it can get very busy from June onwards, you got some awesome shots..

All the best Steve..
