New on 500px : Celestial Drive by markg by markg

I drove out to the back country area above Hanmer Springs on the South Island of New Zealand to capture this 360 degree seamless pano of the night sky.

There’s quite a lot going on with this image – you have the Milky Way which can be seen arching over the landscape in the right of frame, and below that you can see a natural phenomena know as gravity waves. The glow in the centre of frame is from the lights of Christchurch 130km away, and to the left of that are the Magellanic Clouds, which are a duo of irregular dwarf galaxies visible only from the Southern Hemisphere. The faint triangular glow to the far left of frame is the Zodiacal Light, which is caused by sunlight scattered by space dust in the zodiacal cloud, and in this case, is seen just before morning twilight.

For the tech buffs out there, this image is a 218 megapixel image made up of a stitch of 28 individual images, which were shot on a Gigapan Epic Pro. The images were shot 4 rows vertically by 7 columns horizontally, each on a 24mm lens with an exposure of a 25 second shutter at f/2.8 with an ISO 6400. The whole pano took a total of 14 minutes to shoot with all the images.

100% BETTER ON BLACK!!!

After a long headache and 2 hours on a twisty road we finally arrived at a beautiful meadow in Mt Laguna. As the sunlight fell we were graced with a beautifully vivid night sky. My friends Dan Douglas, Brian Hawkins and Daniel Tomlinson had a blast sharing stories and setting up multiple axis Timelapse shots. As the 4 hour Timelapses were running I decided to capture this 180 degree panorama.

Since I know you guys love the technical details here they are, this Panorama is 15 vertical images taken with the Canon 6D and Nikon 14-24 F/2.8
EXIF: 20Sec F/2.8 ISO6400

New on 500px : Life in the Void by JaredWarren by JaredWarren

[Best viewed on black background!] In a remote area of the Colorado plateau is a fascinating expanse of undulating sandstone punctuated with dozens of “potholes,” some more than 50 feet deep. In many of the holes you can find pools of water and plant life, including a few with good-sized cottonwood trees growing up out of them.

I particularly love being out under the stars in such surreal locations. It’s both humbling and exhilarating staring up at our Milky Way and realizing our solar system is one of billions in our galaxy, which itself is just one of billions of galaxies in the cosmos. Quite a lesson in perspective.

The sky exposure was at f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 5000; the terrain exposure was taken around first light of dawn, f/8.0, 30 sec, ISO 100. Thanks for looking, and I’d love to have you follow me here and on FACEBOOK.

New on 500px : Beacon of Light by hdornanphoto by hdornanphoto

Another long exposure shot from the Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills. This is my favorite view point of the Tokyo Tower. It’s not cheap though at 2000 yen, but still worth it.

A little bit of selective coloring done in post processing in CS6.
