Taupo Twilight

Taupo Twilight

The last one from an attempt at a star-trails over the lake before my 2nd battery went flat. Unfortunately it wasn’t until this shot that I realised that I had the aperture too closed (f22 for the previous ones), rendering them too dark. This particular one was shot at f11. I will remember this for the next attempt. Taken from Acacia Bay looking towards the township of Taupo.

Crop, Levels, Color Temp, Vignette, Noise Reduction (this is the simplified list of an hour’s worth of processing – but mostly tweaking the aforementioned).
