I'm really wondering, how do you get such sharp images with such a long exposure. 291 seconds, I read. I often get blurry and noisy picture when I do that. Even though my ISO is low and aperture is around F/16.
What are your techniques, if I may ask? Do you do much editing afterwards to get it like this?
The description of this image refers to the technique i'm using...manual blending also called DRI.
To compose this photo i used different exposures...i rarely spend more than 1h for post-processing....
FYI: ISO 50 often creates more noise and flickering dots than expected specially on super long exposure like this one! This is actually taking most of my editing...i'm using differnts passes of Dfine 2 + view at 200/400% and track the noise/dots with clone stamp
