Twilight Mist, Staple Tor by Alex37 Twilight Mist, Staple Tor by Alex37
This is the first portfolio shot I have taken with my 400mm 5.6 and 1.4x converter giving a total focal length of 560mm. This is Staple Tor photographed from King Tor, 2.1 miles away.

As night closed in, low cloud started to drift over the tor, occasionally exposing it as an island. This is a 30 second exposure, no ND filters were needed, the light was incredibly low.

I'm often commenting on digital art that looks photo realistic, but this is so surreal, it looks like a painting! LOVE that quality in photos. Makes me wish I could have been there. =)

Thanks very much. Actually I think 'being there' wouldnt have been the most amazing experience on this occasion because it was very dark and the tor was really far away!

Huh, you have a point! (I've had a few pictures that were odd like that, too.)

But that considered, you've accomplished a great shot, then, if you can make your photo look more enticing than the reality might have been. Great work =D
