Spur of the moment trip up there last Friday with a couple of fellow DSLR nerds. We definitely picked the right night to be up there, except for the fact that it was 37ยบ. :eek: The skies were super clear, and the moon was bright, making it look like daytime for long exposure shots. All of these were taken using a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. Most shots were at ISO 400 or 800, and most shots were 30 second exposures. I hope you guys like!

1.) Playing with the flash at night can be fun!

2.) The road that leads to the top of Palomar Mtn is frequented by motorcycle riders and driving enthusiasts alike. It's a really fun driving road, lots of tight turns. It can also be super dangerous if you don't know what you're doing...

4.) Another shot of a passing motorist.

5.) That same tree with the moon back-lighting it.

6.) The top of the mountain, around 6,000ft above sea level. Looking out towards Escondido, CA. and greater San Diego. Gotta love all that light pollution...

7.) Yes, the moon was that bright.

That's it!

1,6 and 7 display wonderful use of light. Must have been a really fun trek.

Two words for you: day-um!!! Awesome photos, all around!

Just a heads up - #4 has a LOT of haloing around the trees. This could be from burning the background and missing the fringes of the foreground, or an artifact of sharpening (high pass filter, etc). Other than that - very nice!

Cool series, 2,5, and 7 were my favorites. What was the light source on the trees in #7?

Dumb question - is anybody familiar with the "On Star" commercial where a car crashes in a tree, On Star contacts the service center who calls for help. The commercial end-scene is a police car, lights going, going around the bend. There is a city in the background, in a mountainous area. Is this the same location as that commercial (if anybody knows the commercial of which I speak)?

Glad you like 'em! Yeah, the halo'ing is a result of me bringing up the shadows and highlights to give an HDR-like effect.

The moon. =)

Thanks for all the nice feedback, guys.
