David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. My photographic interest include Travel, the Natural World, Landscapes, and Photographic Techniques. I try to include information for each image as to where, when, why and how the image was processed. Most of the images are available for purchase -- either as prints or rights managed (Clicking on an image brings you to the ShepArt Studio Team Site). Comments about the images or this site are always welcome. DJM


Nightscapes — New Jersey

"Have you seen the stars tonight"

Jet Trails Traveling Through The Star Trail Vortex. Late Autumn Backyard Night Sky in New Jersey. Composite of ~400 images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 18 mm f/2 lens (ISO 400, 18 mm, f/4, 30 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro, Photoshop CC (scripts, statistics, maximum), and NIK Color Efex 2.

Note — The images were taken looking south, and New Jersey is in the Northern Hemisphere. So why did the star trails look like the camera was pointing north?
