This was taken the same night this shot was, about an hour earlier. These shots were my first real experience doing long exposure night shots, and the first time I made a real effort to capture the stars.
Went out for a late night drive with Vee to catch the meteor shower. I didn’t see any meteors, but I managed to catch this night shot. The illumination of the lower clouds by the lights of the city contrast nicely with the stars above.
This one was taken the same day as these othertwo shots of mine, about an hour after the latter.
I wanted to capture both the moonrise and the heavy lighting of the Golden Gate Bridge, and the contrasting shades of blue and red those elements bestowed upon the scene. The 14mm made it easy, but not without distortion - I had to line the shot up very carefully in order to get the architecture to look good.
Still, the lens is amazing, and I can’t complain. With a lens this sharp, you can afford to correct distortion later without ruining micro-details.
