Orion's never looked so fine, and seeing him like this, rising over Australia is a real treat.  Thank you.

Thank you so much :D Yes, some people don't realise just how much the Moon can light up the landscape at night if you take a long exposure.

Orion is my favourite constellation. For some reason I always relate it to my father who passed away in 2006. Any idea why the double star Meissa at the top end doesn't show up so well on photographs? Betelgeuse and Rigel are obviously far more intense so really pop out at you but I thought Meissa would be bright enough to show clearly. I'm fairly new to star gazing but your work makes me want to go out there and gaze all night, albeit in the northern hemisphere and with Cumbrian clouds to contend with.

Sorry, forgot, Meissa is at the bottom end for you. D'oh! Told you I was new to it. Feel embarrassed now.

Thank you so much for the great feedback on my work :D (Big Grin)  It's ok.  We all make mistakes.  Orion is probably my favorite constellation as well.

Excellent shot.

I have to ask, is this one exposure, or several layered on each other?

Just gorgeous, though it took me a while to figure out that its a picture from the southern hemisphere... kept wondering why Taurus looked like that.

Such an intense yellow from the canola - impressive shot (as usual)!

May I ask how you got the stars to look so dream-like?

:iconcapturingthenight:
CapturingTheNight Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you so much :D Not a filter in Photoshop as suggested below but a filter at the time of shooting.

Haha. I figured you wouldn't have done it in photoshop. 

What type of filter was it, if you don't mind me asking?

star filter in photoshop?

No.  See above

Hmm, my photoshop doesn't seem to have the star filter... but I have one, and I think it would just make crosses on all of the stars. You got me thinking about how I could imitate it in photoshop, though, and the Diffuse Glow filter makes a similar effect. 

I'm thinking there might have just been an atmospheric haze on the day he took this - either way it gave a beautiful result.

I really like how you bring out the colors of the individual stars, like Betelgeuse for example. Love your work! :)

This is breathtaking. I'm not even kidding- your photography influences me to keep pushing and trying new things with night photography. (Although.. right now I NEED a new camera to move forward, I'm doing really good at evolving with the star trails.) Seeing your work on here made me fall in love over and over again with night photography. I am constantly in awe with your work!
