Nikon D90, 28mm f1.8 @ f1.8 and 6-30 seconds. I went out to an uninhabited area in the SF Bay area (click the image to view the map on flickr for the exact location) that is about as dark as you can get in the area.

I was shooting for meteors, but got this instead. I guess I'm happy with it, though!

Where was his again? I can't see the location on Flickr.

Tequila and ranch dressing?!?!

Yeah ! :p ranch out of place! Corralejo FTW :p

I'm all for watermarks! I've seen some pretty awesome watermarks on dpreview that aren't obtrusive and add something to the image! It was just a comment, sheesh!

Where was his again? I can't see the location on Flickr.

This morning i saw this light and thought it looked cool, so i took a picture

Indeed it does look creepy!

I like the eeriness of that^ :)

Floor flushing dappers eh!?

Nice Fog!!! The bush to the left kinda distracts a bit.

I added the location a few days ago; I had forgotten :(

It's ~5 miles east of Mt. Diablo in the SF Bay area. You can see the exact location on the flickr page now.

It's the same spot I've been going to for 5+ years now.

Trying to focus on eyes on people with glasses with too many reflections is hard as hell!

Puppeh love!!!! Like humans, what we try to get in focus is the eyes, not the nose, but then again, it's whatever your shooting for...

Little bit more night photography. Went to Cannock chase and did some Star photography and painting a car and bridge with torches. (Just imagine the corsa is a Zonda or something yeah? :p)

Loving this one! Though should've spot healed the torch just under the head light! Would you mind sharing what type of flashlight/torches you used and how exactly you lit the car?

Ps. kudos on making the watermark much smaller and now, even adds something to teh photo.

Can't remember If I did touch this one up? Might have lol, The torches we used were basic ones running off of AA batteries, mine cost me around ?7. Admittedly my mates had quite a good range but with two of us, 30 second exposure we got to work painting the car as such. On this photo in particular he concentrated on the car as a whole and I highlighted the wheels about 10 seconds on each then went over the outline of the car. Came out nicely by the time we decided to add the bridge(s) (we did 3 different bridges but for the first two I forgot to adjust the focus xD) into the shots we had it down to a tee.

And thanks on the watermark, Admittedly it was a little large on the light trail ones but I was proud of them :p lol

One of my first photos that I took with my new Canon 480EX II flash- my first external flash. So far, I love it- having the option to bounce off of the ceiling is very handy.

Oh snap, it's about time moonman got a new body!

And the 28mm f1.8? I bought a lens before moonman did?!

Why'd you use that over the 24mm f1.4?

Is there really that much difference in 4mm...?

I put my 17-50mm on and zoomed between the two and couldn't tell a difference and decided that 2/3 of a stop wasn't worth ~$1500 to me at this time.

I can see what you were going for there Blank, I decided to give it a little edit to see what I can do. What you can see from your image is that the foreground is underexposed, while the back is overexposed, a little curves editing can change that. Also maybe changing the photo from landscape to portrait, so the tracks effect works better.

I gave it a little go, made it BW because I figured it works better. I didn't have much time (The trees are a little sharp) but I think it turned out fairly well :) Hope you don't mind (I'll take it down if you wish)

The closest part of the foreground is rather uninteresting. I think a horizontal crop would be best.

Chase, I like that you took the time offer an edit for discussion!

I actually like the tracks more than the background :p it's what shouldn't be there if you ask me, so that makes it interesting :p

      Gallery: Microsoft dresses up E3 booth in black, showcases One S, Sea of Thieves and more
      by Timi Cantisano



      Over the past couple of years, Neowin has provided virtual booth tours by publishing galleries of Microsoft's Xbox booth at E3. This year, the booth offers a more matured look, as the company has strayed from emblazoning the setup in "Xbox Green", and has instead, opted to go with a simple black motif.



      Although some of the first signage you'll see entering the Xbox booth is for Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3, make no mistake, the Xbox One S is the first main attraction booth visitors will be greeted by, and it is fantastic. Although you cannot lay hands on the newly announced console, it's still a sight to behold and looks mesmerizing from every angle.



      Pushing deeper into the booth, kiosks to play the aforementioned Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 become available, along with other titles announced at the Xbox E3 Briefing. Ghost Recon Wildlands, Cuphead, The Turing Test are just some of the titles available to play when roaming around the show floor.



      Perhaps one of the more interesting parts of the Xbox experience at E3 is the Xbox Design Lab nook that allowed attendees to get their hands on sample customized controllers, and even take time to create their own custom controller on the Design Lab website.

      Although Xbox owners have a lot to look forward to in 2016, many will already be thinking much further down the road at 2017, when Microsoft's next console, Project Scorpio will be released. But until then, enjoy our booth gallery.

      Is any JSON gurus around? I use JSON library for my website gallery pages and everything up to thumbnails #9 works great. The problem starts when I click on thumbnail #10 (4-th row the first image from the left). When I click on it, it supposed to open the block with bigger image and additional text but it does not show anything, same for the thumbnail #20. If user clicks on thumbnail #11, it will show big image and text that correspond to thumbnails #1. My guess is  - JavaScript doesn't read 2 digits and reads only the one from right only: "10 "reads like  "0"; "11", "21" reads like "1".
      Anyone can point me how to fix it in my code? I would appreciate any advice or help.
      For each page I have group of files  - php (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/gallery-still-life.php), which works as an html and 2 files with javaScript coding (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/js/still-life-function.js  http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/json/still-life.json )
       
      Thank you.

      Even more images of Nokia's 'Moonraker' smartwatch show up
      by Vlad Dudau



      The competition in the smartwatch market may just be heating up, but one device that will never get to compete is Nokia’s canceled “Moonraker” watch.

      We first heard of the device last summer, when some leaked render shots showed what could have been if Microsoft had ever let this device come to market. But since then, images of the prototype smartwatch have continued to show up, including an entire gallery which we published a couple of days ago.

      But if that didn’t satisfy your needs, we’ve got even more images of the “Moonraker” watch today, seemingly following on from the previous showcase. As you can see in the images, which come from China, the device is shown in full detail, including some of its internals.

      There’s even a side by side comparison of the watch’s power port next to a power port of a supposed Lumia tablet. The device in question does seem to follow the Nokia/Lumia design aesthetic we’re used to, but whether this is the old 8-inch mini tablet from back in 2013 or the newer Mercury tablet from last year is hard to say.

      In either case, that’s pretty much a moot point at this time as Microsoft is focusing all of its wearable efforts on the Band 2, while today’s Nokia seems to have very little interest in consumer devices.

      Welcome to the Neowin photo gallery! Here you can post your pictures and discuss your photography techniques.

      Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.

      I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

      Try to put more details from your camera settings (EXIF) and also talk about what you have done with Photoshop (or similar).
      There are a lot of photographers here that like your editing skills and would like to learn more.

      The previous thread can be found here.

      Posting your photos is made easier thanks to a member contribution! Argote created a Flickr to IPB webapp, thanks! [direct link to app]
