Galaxy Rise over Kogel Bay
Another capture from Kogel Bay.
Taken at 7:35PM, only an hour and 15 minutes after the sunset I posted.
I was pretty amazed by the amount of stars I could see as I wasn't that far away from the surrounding major cities. Luckily for me the moon was no where to be seen.
Composed of two exposures, one for the foreground and a second for the sky. The light pollution definitely affected the colour tones, especially on the horizon, but I think the result is fine for this location. (I wasn't even planning on shooting after the sunset to be honest!)
Exposure details for the foreground and sky respectively:
f/4.5 ISO2000 225s
f/4.5 ISO6400 30s
I pushed the sensor as far as it could go so there a few hot pixels in the mix, but it's mostly stars. I'm definitely considering buying equipment for shooting stars like this. It's really great :).
