"Power Plant 2"
General: 8:31 PM on 4/21/05 | Canon 300D
Technical: 29sec | f/22.0 | 55mm (88mm) | ISO-100
Exposure Mode: Manual
Exposure Bias: +0
Flash: No

More shots of the powerplant. I burned some of the bottom portion of the photo to blacken it. It was originally only slightly visible, so I don't feel too bad about it. It gives the photograph a cleaner look.

I'm not sure how well I like this set. I still have some work to do on these type of shots, obviously, but it's a start.

Note: I made a small CSS change: there is not a thin border around the main image, so it's really like a dual border. Only a very small change. You might have to refresh your browser a time or two in order to see it. I also have a lighter theme in development and plant to impliment a theme switcher similar to the one on my blog.

Woah, strange. I love how the powerplant almost looks like an island in the dark :)

Weird affect on the starburst there. . .did you leave your UV filter on?

I always keep my UV filters on as just a clear protecting filter.

You might have wanted to take it off for this one, as I am pretty sure thats what caused the "halo" around the starburst. (which I actually like)

I try to take them off for most of my night shots, as they seem to give unwanted affects sometimes.

But thats just me :)

Mark - thanks for the tip. I'll have to try it out nex time.

Margaret - yes, I know what you mean. I often comment the same about others' photos. It is a common occurance.

This shot is pretty nuts dude. I really am intrigued by the starred light. It looks like it's illuminating a stone wall directly below the light? Really neat shot.

(Hey thanks a lot for the quick response on my exif question)

Wow...so talented. I really like your macro photography...keep them coming. Thanks for reminding me of home...it's great to see images from Arizona. Is this the plant off of University and McClintock...I too attended ASU...I had so much fun at that school. I will be visiting often.

That's got to be the coolest starburst/lens flare I've ever seen. I like this shot a lot.

Great shot. A lovely glowing island indeed. That light flare is great too. Nice work.
