[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pictures is an improvement of the former one Moving in circles, there you can find also a full description of how did I take this picture.
First the light is much more better than my former picture, I got this light thanks to few vhicles and a bus that I arrived to this area and illuminated the surface equally.
Second the composition is little bit better.
Third the exposure is little bit longer, unfortunatly my batteries went out after about 4 hours instead of the six hours that I planned.
Fifth, the light source that I had at the former time on the left side of the frame was weaker.
Sixth, the scan of the positive is much better than my former scan, you can see on the stars' details.

I hope you will like it.


Just for clarification, it is not a photoshop manipulation!

Fabulous picture. Comparing the two it seems you have really perfected the technique. This is a really interesting shot to see

Hi Elroyie,
This is a big improvement on the previous post. The lighting is so much better on the rocks in this one.
Also the Stars are much better detailed as you say.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend.

Hi Elroyie,
I checked out the link-back and yes - This one is much better..Practice makes perfect :)
Awesome shot, I'm hypnotized with the effect ;-}
Very well done and have a "peaceful" weekend.

Hi Elroye.
Superb work with demanding exposure. Nothing to complain about. Interesting and nice.

Another of your stunning timer exposures. What a wondeful picture you have there. Excellent - there is really nothign else to say that I didn't say last time.


Hi Elroyie

Impressive! :-)

Hello Elroyie, this is rather special what you have done. Very creative thinking behind this. Excellent work.

Wow! Never saw a technique like this before. Don't understand how you do it, but it is fabulous!

Image très réussie de cette rotation terrestre caractérisée par ce déplacement d'étoiles autour de la polaire. Très bonne exposition.J'aime bien l'idée d'inclure ce premier plan qui complète bien la photo...et quelle patience...4 heures de pose!

Hi Elroyie, splendid shot and great exposure. The composition with the tree on the right is excellent. Well done, Didier.

Hi Elroyie,

This is great Elroyie! I love it ... Wonderful technique and great effect. I agree with you that this picture is better than the first attempt. Well done & TFS!


This is great. I want to do one of these myself. I guess you had to do quite a bit of experimenting with exposure times to get the effect you wanted? Could be a lot of wasted film!
The difference in colours of the stars is quite surprising.

Wow, really amazing shot, Elroyie. I've accidentally captured a bit of motion using a long exposure (30 seconds), but this is really well done. You've really improved on your own photo and technique -- a great model for all of us!

Hi Elroyie,

As i say always, your pictures / shots are Astonishing.
This one particular because it was hard to belive that it wasn't a photoshop gimic manipulation, but i belive you of course. Still it is amazing, specially that this is not a digital camera but a film one.


Hello Elroyie
Interesting capture of our night sky. The stars circles are amazing. You did a great job on this night shot. Congratulations on being featured today!
