Title: Fire In The Sky
Post by: lunartic on July 23, 2008, 09:00:53 pm
Hi there

Seeing as the great weather has given me plenty of time to go through my old photos and I came across these, I took them some years ago and I thought you might like them.

Those are great Paul. Numbers 3 and 4 are very creative. 4 is quite amazing taken through multiple windows. Thanks for sharing those with us.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Number 3 is just the same as number 2, just a little longer on the exposure.  Number 4 was taken at work, I had to be in early one morning and I was bored, saw the effect on the window and was lucky to have my camera with me.

I have another taken the same morning, I'll dig it out and download it.

Yes, nice work Paul - I do like it when the Sun gets to illuminate the clouds from underneath!

Good shots, Paul. #2 looks the best for me.

Had you ever seen a NLC reflection?
My photo on Jul.06 morning:

I have cropped this image before, but in original size you can see the nice reflection of NLC in the window

Hi there

As promised here's the photograph I took the same morning as the window shot, I called it Morning Fire.

There was an electric wire running across the image behind the branches of the tree which I removed with Photoshop.

Roman, I don't think I have ever seen an NLC image with a reflection on a window before. Very original.  :)

Paul, great shot of the naked tree branches against the red atmospheric sky!
