Looks good Lance, you may want to tweak your post processing a bit and see if you can get rid of some of the off-colors in your sky. Might be able to select the purple/pink, and then reduce the saturation in of that specific color, which will help it blend a bit better.

Very nice composition and I love the clouds with the light pollution.

Yeah I was a bit devoed about that light pollution. Drove about 2hours and still was dominating even though we were in complete darkness.

Thanks Todd, I will give it a go.

Hi all, pretty new to this im working on a time-lapse with night scenes, i live in WA Australia middle of nowhere so have a perfect opportunity to shot some stars.

here is a shot below i did 5D mk2 17-40 30 seconds iso 3200 Wide open F4

i'm wondering if i need to upgrade to 16-35 or zeiss glass for a wider aperture F4 just doesn't seem to be that great, or maybe just not doing it right.

FYI the tree was lit with a shot through umbrella with a everyready torch.

Looks great, Lerroy. Yes, ƒf4 is not ideal.. usually want a 2.8 or even faster if possible. Lighting looks good!

Thanks Todd, your work is inspiring

will look at the faster glass, i'm thinking for time lapses though 40-50seconds exp wont matter with the trails we shall see

thanks

Thanks!

Yeah, star trails won't be very apparent because of the resolution of the time-lapse video (even HD).
