It is a long exposure of a few minutes. It is not HDR. The multiple light sources bouncing off the water and the clouds is what gives that effect.

Photo results of high speed engine off shuttle night landing (almost pitch darkness)

I was runway side for STS:123 return. It was pitch dark and there was mosquitoes,assorted other bugs,gators and snakes around. It sure was a memorable landing. The photo result of the experience is here:

http://www.atapattu.net/sts123landing/atapattu00.html

At the end of the gallery, I put a day landing shot as a reference to contrast with the night landing.

Sample picture attached.

Will you update that ED experience link by the end of the week too? I love seeing ED pics through the eyes and cameras of real photographers.

I am trying to find a copy of the site. When I do, I will re upload it. It has been almost 8 years since I did the site and ED.

Here is one more pic

STS: 132 launch

Three images focused on the lighting around the orbiter on launch night. I was trying to capture the light beams intensity hence the orbiter gets washed out.

The faint red loop at the tree line is a NASA security helicopter providing aircover for the astronauts who are on their way to catch the ride into space.

As always, great shots. I made the third pic my new desktop background. What was the exposure setting on that third shot?

I'd love to be able to play around with a 600mm lens, if only for a day. I suppose I could always just rent one sometime...
