Photographer's Note

Pentax K20D
10-20mm lens
Exposure: 65.04 secs
F-Stop: f/5.6
ISO: 100

Shot was taken at night on the S/W peninsula of Taro. Strange as it may seem, I only had compressed air to keep the condensation off the lens due to the high humidity. A tripond was used and a shutter remote to keep the rig steady.

There's a bit of noise on the shot but it seemed that with the rest of the night shots that I attempted (this was the first night that I had attempted night shots), the noise was something that I couldn't figure out how to get rid of.

I had to light-fill in the darker areas for some detail and used a graduated tint for the sky to get a deeper colour.

It was a good night though. After doing a recce of the area during the day, I went out there with a full moon light the way. Billy was keeping up the conversation and the thought of a huge croc that had been reported a few times in the area kept me on edge.

All in all, this shot has good feelings associated with it of my time on Taro.

Comments/suggestions welcome...
