Not much to say about this. I think this would be much better as maybe 3 or 4 different photographs. Maybe just quarter it evenly. Or maybe some overlapping bits: take the lower right, up to a bit above that planet in the center right, and over to just before the vertical in focus strip on the left; then one that’s just that vertical strip and its explosion bokeh; then maybe one of the subtle variations in tone just below the lefthand vertical; and I could keep going.

But one thing’s for sure, this is too busy, methinks.

Oh well.

Also, I’ve come to the conclusion that the 24mm is a brilliant lens for getting up really close and personal, but it’s really a pita under certain circumstances, due to the severe and impossible-to-remove chromatic aberration.

It’s still a great lens, though. For sure.

And look at that… I said more about this than I did about yesterday’s shot, even though I had more to say about yesterday’s shot. Fun times.

D7000. Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai, reversed, on 100mm extension. ISO100, 1 second, f/2.8. Run though Topaz Labs’s Adjust 5 and B&W Effects, plus a bit of exposure and levels tweaking in Aperture.
