Sleeping Excavator 2

Sleeping Excavator 2
I took a different perspective of the excavator at a low angle and after a few takes, the clouds set in which all came at the appropriate time. Exposed for 25 seconds with a Variable-ND filter set at 3 or 5 stops down, on my Tokina 11-16mm lens at f/11. One neutral light was used as fill light on the excavator from camera left.

Sleeping Excavator

Sleeping Excavator
Second attempt on star trails at an industrial area. The area was heavily lit with sodium vapour street lights but with proper color corrections in Photoshop, the strong yellow-orange color cast can still be removed. Neutral  cool white light was used to light-paint the excavator. 20 long exposures of 1 minutes and stacked in Photoshop using Dr Brown's Stack-a-matic.

At the time of posting this blog, the excavator was removed and the langlang (long grasses) were mowed.
