In The Dark - 幻影

Nelson, New Zealand
Nikon D200
AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-210mm F4-5.6 @ 210mm
F8, 30sec, ISO-100 (on tripod)


  1. a fine time exposure to obtain this interesting and fairly detailed night shot. Well done.

  2. Fabulous shot, completely eerie feeling. Can't take my eyes off it!


  3. I like the quailty shot!

  4. Oh great work Ben! .. love the star bursts and the 30 second shutter effect on the smoke. Fascinating and captivating image.

  5. Thanks, Gavin.
    I tried 60sec as well (posted at Nelson Daily Photo) as shorter one like 5sec. The 60 sec one does not have this star burst effect, and shorter one does not have a dramatic steam shape like this. I think 30sec is about limit for both this light effect and spreading the steam.

  6. Ben, this is amazing. I really like this one. Great idea to catch this in a night shot.
