LA Star

Here is another image from my trip up to Los Angeles this past weekend. We started off at Griffith Observatory where we just walked around the observatory and I took all kind of pictures that I will share in future posts. This particular shot was taken from the upper deck of the observatory overlooking downtown Los Angeles. Considering its the town of the stars I wanted to do at least one image with a flare that makes look like a “star” πŸ™‚ Enjoy the weekend everyone.

  4. Great shot Mate! Did you use star filter on this one?

    • Much appreciated. No I didn’t, just using the smallest apertures possible (in this case f/22). Also, this was a 6 bracket HDR [-3,-2,-1,0,+1,+2 EV], the =3 & -2 underexposed images is pretty much where the star effect comes from. Hope this helps πŸ™‚

    • Yes, no filters πŸ™‚ small aperture is the secret.
