"The Wall" by @thetaintedtripod
Such an incredible image with the Star Adventurer.🤩
Eden Bhatta says: This was more of a test image that turned out better than expected. I was trying a new glass, Rokinon 14mm f/2.4 and also scouting location for future shots. The lens was pretty amazing in terms of sharpness and coma performance. Although I shoot nightscapes mostly with a slightly longer lens but I can see myself using this lens more often. The image quality difference between this and its f/2.8 predecessor is almost day and night.
I found the landscape pretty interesting, especially with a naked tree in the foreground. The background wall-like land formations are quite peculiar, fragile and are receding with erosion and aptly called ‘The Wall’. These severely eroded escarpment is the heart of the Badlands landscape and stretches throughout the park.
Sky - 2 mins tracked, f/2.8, ISO 1600.
Foreground - 2mins, f/2.8, ISO 3200.
