Oh how I love me some startrails. Poetry in motion if you ask me……I suppose Earth in motion as well. There are so many different methods and eyes for startrails and in many cases you just need those stars shining bright silhouetted against a dark shadowy foreground. Sometimes foreground and foreground lighting can help add detail as well as some attitude to the image. Foreground lighting can also make or break a great set of startrails depending on how you go about it. This image from Komal Patel is just perfect to me.
She captured this image from just outside her tent in Ranthambore National Park in the Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan, India. The bright blue sky and startrails are complimented and framed perfectly by the lush greens of the local trees. The lighting is also perfect; not too bright as to take away from the sky and not too dim as to distract you by making you wonder what you’re looking at. This pic involves a great eye and great sense for what’s pleasing to the eye. Awesome job!
Ranthambore National Park is a world renowned wildlife tourist attraction from Tigers, Leopards and Jackals to Flying Foxes, False Vampire Bats and major reptile collections. The park is spread over 392 sq km and due to its pictorial ruins, count as a Heritage Site.
