  #190 Low Light Photography
Entry 4 of 18
   
 
eclipse       ©2017 dk
Panasonic DMC-GM5       4th place, 138 points
1/1250s, f2.5, ISO 200, 28mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: convert to BW
globally increase contrast and sharpen
      Extra Info: Over 90% of the sun is eclipsed by moon in this shot. Thought that the whole event would be a bust due to the mild to moderately heavy cloud cover. However, turns out the clouds were a bonus: a bright ring around the sun seemed to develop, at least in-part due to the alteration by the clouds of the already lunar-attenuated light. Still needed those special eclipse glasses though...

    thank you for all your comments.

Robt, you are essentially correct. Although it was lower light out, still light poor so to speak. When I included the sun however, the shutter speed just sky-rocketed.

    I ranked this #1. Loved everything about it. Thought it would have placed higher. Nonetheless, congrats on a top 5.

    Too bad it was cloudy. Good idea to include the sun/moon gazers.

    This is a nice variation on solar eclipse photos - The silhouettes against the clouds are really effective.

    Awesome perspective. The moment I saw this pic I immediately thought of "The War of the Worlds" by Orson Welles.

    Wow, I'm glad to hear that the cloud coverage added some benefit to the viewers. Nicely composed shot.

    The people help tell the eclipse story very nicely. Would be even better if the moon were in focus, too - maybe a composite technique?

    Intriguing image - the light was certainly lower than "normal"; however, I am sure it was still quite bright out. Please correct me if I am wrong.
