A starry night at double arch and a quick tip Tuesday

Knowing that I will soon be out in the desert and capturing a few more “night sky” and “astrophotograpy” images soon (not sure why I used the quotes by the way), I decided to share a partial failure with you. Seems like the brain was not is full gear as I set up for what I thought was going to be a “tack sharp” (there he goes again!) image with minimal star blur.

Must have been the general spookiness of the night or perhaps the sounds the I thought I kept hearing off in the distance near the arches that had my mind off track. Seems my camera focus and settings really could have used a tweak here. Like I said, I’m heading back soon so lets see if I learned anything 🙂

Actually, it’s not too bad now that I look at it 🙂

A starry night at Arches

And by the way, now that I am back in the safety of my candle lit studio and am exploring this image a bit more, it seems like there WAS someone off in the distance. I thought I heard something! Can you find them?

I guess I could have used content aware fill to remove them right?


Here is a quick video about how to do just that 🙂
