Alien Earth by Inebriantia Alien Earth by Inebriantia
Alien Earth


Continuing the presentation of the endless surprises that long exposures bring to our eyes... an intense, yet calmer earth, soothing and vibrant, just like that imaginary alien planet which inhabits our imaginations, that planet we'd love to visit one day.



On a side note... notice those two separate "blotches" on the left at the end of the dark rock formation? It's a fisher, caught on the long exposure in two distinct positions.


Your comments and favs are very very welcome.

Beautiful! I'm curious to know - is this before dawn, or after sunset?

After sunset. I'm yet to manage to be able to get so early, to shoot before sunrise. :D

These are just some amazing striations within the rock. And the colors really give the photograph a mood. Great job! :D

Beautiful, just beautiful. One of these days I need to figure out how you shoot such beautiful photos.

I wish. I've been trying to figure out how you do it for over a year. My only guess so far is that it's part HDR photography but that still doesn't account for a lot.

Hello there. :-)

There's no need to spend one year trying to figure it out. :) In this case, this image was only possible with a dslr + ultra wide angle lens + 9 stop hoya nd 400 filter + 3 stop ND Grad filter + composition/light selection + raw conversion with emphasis on fill light and highlights + post-processing with vignetting, slight colour balance adjustment and some dodge burn on the rock area.

No HDR involved.

Wow, nice one man! I think the sky is slightly dark tho, I think perhaps the GND3 was a little strong this time. I think it would benefit from a bit of lightening in photoshop.
Amazing shot tho! Really nicely taken!
