It happened in Photoshop when I tried to increase the brightness a bit using the Shadows/Highlights dialog. I thought it made the cork stand out a bit more, because the original had such low contrast.

I got it for £535 from onestopdigital for anyone interested, obviously no UK warranty as it's imported but "if" it breaks I'll just pay Fixation for repair although I've had no issues with the 85mm 1.4 from from Sigma which was also imported yet :)

It's £700~ in the UK.

Naw :( Honduras, Central America. importing here costs easily %40 or more because of taxes.

f2.5 for 5 secs, ISO 3200; colours were whack (the 28mm for long exposures gets all orange-y... annoying!) so it was adjusted in Lightroom - essentially auto WB, knock down exposure a stop, blacks -100, darks on tone curve -60. It's hard to get stars in focus with no lights to see the focal distance, and with a lens hood as the tripod to prop it up :p
