St Mary's Church, Wood End
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is a floodlight lighting up St Mary's Church at Wood End. (I was actually here to take some photos of the church itself; I will head back and photograph it properly tomorrow.) In a similar vein to star trails, I set the camera to continuous 30-second exposures and sat down to read for a bit.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 55mm
Exposure: 390" @ f/8, ISO 100 (Composite of 13 images of 30 seconds each)

Post processing:

Startrails -

  1. The Startrails program makes it super easy - just select all images and press "combine".
Lightroom -
  1. Imported the result from Startrails
  2. Presence: Recovery +100, clarity +100
  3. Curves: lights +30, darks -60

The wash-up:

Photos of the actual church (to re-shoot).
