Timber Frame, Star Trails (cool edit)

Work in progress for one of my design clients - they wanted to see what I could do with one of their frames and the night sky. Battled the street lights, dew, and what turned out to be chilly, but had good fun and now need to think about the processing.


113 images @ 30s f/2.8 ISO 800 for the stars, stacked in Ps as layers using 'lighten', then tweaked and blurred a bit. Still have the zipper effect that I might need to remedy. I overlaid a shot of the frame taken @ f/4 and blended it over the original frame.


The frame was lit by the street lamps, so I tried to balance the stained color of the wood vs. what the lights were coloring it...
