The following set of photos featuring the star effect on the Sun as I posted on Monday were all taken within a couple of minutes of each other. I was trying to catch various wave patterns. The lens was the Tokina 11-16mm Ultra Wide Angle and the exposure was the same for all four: 1/8th of a second shutter speed, f/16 aperture, ISO 400, EV +1.0. The first three at 16mm, the last at 11mm focal lengths.
Being that these photos were taken under the same lighting and exposures, I had fun trying out a few of Aperture 3′s new presets which come with the photo management software. You’ll see which ones I used in each photo’s caption. I must say I was impressed with them and look forward to trying out more presets which are becoming available for free and for purchase across the Internet.
Hope I have not bored you with all the sunsets and waves this week! It’s been cool, cloudy and windy the last few days here in upstate New York. These photos help to keep the sunshine around as does this song.
