3:10 to Chillicothe
Standing just outside the small town of Chillicothe, TX at 3:10 am as a local freight train speeds by and a waning crescent moon is on the rise.

Here's a few I took at Pebble Beach. I used the TS-E 17mm and even though the lens is f/4 it is still great for night images, especially without much light pollution present. For the 1st shot, I took the foreground in one long exposure (10 min) and shifted up for a 45 second exposure of the Milky Way and Venus. The second is just 1 vertical shot, but with separate exposures for the foreground and Milky Way.

These are some of the best night shot I've seen. *applause

Can you clarify what you did?

The first shot you did a 10 min foreground exposure. Then did a separate exposure for the sky...then you composited the two?

The second you say is 1 shot but then you say separate exposures....I don't understand. I'm just trying to wrap my head around these shots.

Just fabulous!

Agreed, those are a beautiful scene! However, I'm seeing tons of moire pattern in your skies on the first shot and on the second the entire image feels over sharpened. It's especially noticeable in the rocks and tree.
Really nice shot though, I dig it. I didn't have a camera with me, when I did lone cypress and the 17 mile drive... would love to go back there someday.

Thanks, glad you like them! I had the idea in my head to do these before I went down there and I was lucky enough to get Venus in the frame.

Since I used a tilt-shift lens for the 1st shot, I didn't take 2 identical shot. Instead, I took a shifted up shot for the sky and a shifted down shot for the foreground which overlapped and blended them together. For the 2nd shot, I took 2 shots of the same thing and composited them.

Thanks Todd. I agree the 2nd shot needs some work...I had an issue with a lot of noise in the foreground and am still working on how to get rid of it correctly. Lightroom did a poor job at it...I ended up using Nik Dfine 2.0 but it didn't get rid of everything either. Also for both my foreground shots which were long exposures (3-10min) I had a bunch of white dots all over the photo. I probably should have shot a dark frame but I didn't think about it at the time and I had the long exposure noise reduction turned off. I hate using a great lens and then having to use max noise reduction which messes up the sharpness of the shot. How do you deal with those types of issues? Also can you explain what you mean about the moire in the 1st shot? Are you talking about where it was blended together near the horizon?

I was actually talking about a slight moire pattern in the sky itself. This was when I was viewing it on a 27" iMac this am. It's not as pronounced on the iPad that I'm on now, but I can still see the pattern if I look at it hard enough. It's strongest just to the right of the Milky Way.

I hear ya on the lens.. I love using my 17 TS-E for night shots - use mine for most sots just because of the sharpness and the corners. Not much you can do in some cases though... If you are in a really dark spot with a dark scene, it's hard to get enough light to properly expose the image. You can lift up in post or bump the ISO up in the camera. I've done both and in some scenes higher ISO works better while in some other types of scenes, bringing it up in post and keeping the shot unherexposed works better. No real hard/fast rule I've found - so I generally try both methods if I have time.

I shoot almost exclusively single shot, where it's very rare that I will blend multiple exposures together. This makes for more hard cases because you can't do too much either way, with just one shot... So in some cases my shots either just darker than I'd like or it has more noise. I've learned to just accept noise and in some cases I've embraced it - sort of like grain in black and white shots. I know it's not the same but the feeling often is. I mean I struggle with noise in everything I do, but sometimes I just say wtf. LOL! (Risky Business movie quote)

Anyways, really like what you've done and I wasn't trying to nitpick - just stating what I saw. I'm jealous that you have such beautiful scenery at your disposal! That is a truly beautiful area.
