Starry Winter NightStars Over Lake Rescue in January
Just as cameras and photography techniques improve, so also does post-processing software. Today an amazing selection of software is available that allows ever better development of images. I took this photo in January of 2013 as initial foray into shooting a night sky. Recently I decided I wanted to return to shooting night skies and have been reading up on techniques for both capturing the image as well as post processing the image. Night photography presents several technical challenges and I would do several different things today in the recording of this particular image. However, I also wanted to know just how much I might be able to optimize it and have been trying out different software packages. The original image was captured with a Nikon D300, Tamron 10-24mm@15mm, f 4.0, ISO 400, 60 s. The image was then processed in DxO Pro which has the best noise reduction I have found. I liked this one enough to add it to my Lake Series collection.
