The church and the stars by Alex37 The church and the stars by Alex37
As long as we keep having cloudy surises and sunsets and clears skies during the night and day I feel like i am pretty much limited to astrophotography at the moment. I dont mind it but its a lot harder to find a shot because you cant see so well :P

This is another shot of the parish church just up the road. I lit the church with a torch. I cant get it to stop looking like a cutout, but I guess I will have to deal with that. The gravestone in the foreground is from 1782, you can still read it. This is a stitch of 2 horizontal images. 1min f4 ISO1600. The noise is unbeleivably low. The whitebalance has been changed and the stars have brightness and contrast enhancements

I'm going to try hard to get some shots tomorrow, I kind of like the idea of getting a shot on the last day of the year but my mums side of the family is coming over and I want to spend time with them, particularly my younger cousins!

It's kind of an ironic picture isn't it?

why?

because even though the point that most notable prophets like jesus and buddah had to make was about appreciating life and experiencing it with an open mind and tuning in to everything, the dogmatic followers were too busy waiting for death to experience paradise, they can't see we've been in it this whole time. anybody denies that this is heaven on earth is just missing out. Like poseidon46 said two comments down "beautiful and surreal"
