This year the moon phase, clear weather, and the sunflowers didn't quite line up but still went out to see what might be possible. It was windy and cloudy, but got lucky and got a glimpse of the Milkyway and Jupitor peeking through the clouds as the moon set into the horizon.

Haha yea the moon set does look close to a sunset with long exposure. But yea, sky is not composited in any way.

This is a well executed image, here's why: the shadows on the flowers are realistic. The sky with the blue hour look is perfect as it works well with the balance of yellow vs. blue. + you have some symmetry going on with the flowers and trees...

Went out for a “quick” shoot last night out of town, even though I was exhausted from the past week of work (which is not over yet). Came home with two panos, so definitely think it was worth it.
How amazing to have this... just in your backyard?

Light on the right of the first image (and left on the second) is the town.

Last night at Loch Cameron, just outside of Twizel, New Zealand.
I shot the same pano back in July but there was so much airglow at the time that it looked weird to me. I end up liking this one a lot more.

Two other shots from last night.
Funny how that little puddle of water looked ugly to me at first sight and made me think it would ruin my pano (see below). Then I realized its potential. Turns out, I'm loving that reflection of the Milky Way core!
This is the first time I blend 5-images, both as a small pano, but mostly to have a sharp image from front to back. Opens up new possibilities!

Standing out on the surf break at Mangawhai Heads, north of Auckland.

I've wanted this shot for quite a while and had to wait for the weather and low tide to play along.
I tried a new shooting method for me.

Sony a7iii with Zeiss Batis 18mm
2 rows of 9 shots. Bottom row, 2 min exposures. iso 1250 @ f4 Top row, 3 shot stacks x 9, iso 6400 @ f2.8 before stacking, stitching and blending
