Winning Image: Night Turns to Day – Glenn Hubbers
In an effort to get back on track with the challenge timing, and motivated by Kathy’s choice of Long Exposure Water pics, this one is something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. I’m giving lots of time for this since you really want to avoid moonlight to get good star photos. (For those in the city of course you will also have to travel to somewhere without light pollution.)
My TPE App in my iPad tells me that we are currently at 26% waning crescent with sunset at 8:22 pm and moonrise at 2:21 am, so that between 11 and midnight might be a great time for star photography! And then of course there is a new moon on Monday August 25th and and September 24th, so there are more opportunities in this challenge period.
I’m envisioning either clear star photos or long exposure star trails for this one.
I’m planning a tutorial via Google+ hangouts on Wednesday September 3 at 8:30 pm EDT. If you want to participate, you’ll need a computer with a web cam, a pair of headphones and mic of some sort, and a Google+ account. Please leave me a comment below that you are interested so I can invite you into the hangout.
