Artist's Description

Shot on slide film from Sydney suburbs many years ago. Orton Effect applied, but it’s not too obvious with this image.

Exposure details long forgotten, but it will have been fairly short, due to the relatively bright sky background – probably around 5-10 minutes at f4-ish, on 100 speed film.

Accepted wisdom tells us that city locations are useless for effective astronomy, but you can still create interesting and beautiful results with long exposure photographs of the night sky, as long as you are careful about it; modern digital cameras allow instant feedback on results, so it’s easier now than it used to be! I was pleased that the sky was rendered a fairly normal blue colour, with the light-coloured branches of the trees reflecting local sodium lighting adding a nice colour contrast.
