Whitby after dark.

We took a trip to visit Yorkshire over the weekend, this involved a short trip to Whitby.

I highly recommend the fish and chips at the Fisherman's Wife restaurant.

Re: Whitby after dark.

Nice. I particularly like the first - well balanced composition and a very peaceful feel.

Re: Whitby after dark.

Dave - Whitby is on my to-do list. Seems to enable lovely shots like yours. interesting your 'star like' results on some of those jetty/street lights. Accident or design ?

Re: Whitby after dark.

Number 1 is a real cracker, timed to perfection with just the right amount of ambient light to balance with the artificial light.

Re: Whitby after dark.

The first one especially is superb. Looking at the lights, did you use a star-filter by any chance?

Thanks for looking and commenting.

We were only in Whitby for a couple of hours however, there appears to be some excellent photo locations there, we'll be visiting again.

These were my first attempts at night photography, the lights were by design, of sorts.

My friend who took us to Whitby advised that, if I set the aperture to a certain f stop or stops, it would give this result, he was correct.

I'll check the exif when I'm next on Lightroom and will post the f stops used. Additional info: both images taken at f11 with 12-40 Pro lens.

No filters of any sort used, just E-M1 and 12-40 Pro lens.

Re: Whitby after dark.

As everyone else the first is my favorite too. A cracking shot & helped by the residual light in the sky.
I suspect if it wasn't compared to the one above the second would have got more praise too - it is a nice shot.

The star burst effect seen in the lights is typical for a relatively shut down aperture, you won't get it shooting wide open. I believe it's related to the slight gaps between the aperture blades. Does the lens used have 14 aperture blades??

Thank you for your kind comments.

The lens used was the 12-40 Pro which, I understand has seven aperture blades, the aperture used was f11.

With that sort of small aperture, you must have mounted the lens and camera on a tripod and given a longish shutter speed. That would explain the superb "misty" effect of the water surface and the light "stars".

You're spot on.

Mounted on Gorillapod SLR, iso 100, 30 second exposure.
