Stars Over a Rising Tide

I've found my muse in the Marginal Way. This photo was an experiment based on a comment by @cuteasabugonarug where it was suggested that I higher ISO would be more effective with stars than the lower ones.

 

This is a stack of 12 images (merged using statistics for the trails) and two additional exposures at a lower ISO for more consistency in lighting the rocks.

 

Total Exposures

12 @ 5min - f/4, ISO 400

2 @ 3.5 - 4 min - f/5.6, ISO 100

 

Supplemental lighting

1x Mini Maglite (bare bulb)

1x LED flashlight

1x Maglite 3 D-cell torch
