Italian Nights by Dave-Derbis Italian Nights by Dave-Derbis
What you are looking at is the Pale di San Martino group with some mountain lakes in the foreground near Baita Segantini (2200m) at night. I've spend half the night there shooting and looking at stars in this cloudless night. Except one lonely fox I was there on my own with the mountains, stars - and mosquitos.

By combining three exposures - one for the night sky, one for the mountains and the other for the foreground at twilight, I was able to create this image. I consider it among my most unique images to date. I took more than two hours in the field to shoot the raw data and more than six hours of postprocessing in the studio! Thanks a lot *slamdunker for providing massive postprocessing advice!!!

That little yellow in the bottom made the whole picture great.

Ist ein großartiges Foto! Es sieht allerdings bereits in dieser kleinen Auflösung an den Kanten schon sehr danach aus, dass Himmel und Berge getrennt bearbeitet wurden ...

Vielen Dank! :dance:

Ja, also bei der Nachbearbeitung hab ich verschiedenste Anläufe gemacht bei dem Foto und war nie zufrieden. Hab dann mit Matthias mich nochmal 2x2 Stunden oder so hingesetzt und ne Rohversion gebastelt mit der wir beide am Ende ziemlich zufrieden waren. Das Problem war, dass die drei Aufnahmen durch die >2h Aufnahmezeit ganz leicht versetzt waren, was das Blending nicht leichter gemacht hat und und und... :)

Kann ich mir vorstellen, dass das nicht lustig war zum Zusammensetzen. Ist im Endeffekt auch egal, es sieht dennoch ausgezeichnet aus. Nur eben etwas künstlich durch die Überblendung. ;)

It -looks- like an artist rendering for a RPG video game or something. :)
