Today’s photo of the day if by Peter Coskun and it was submitted to the Twilight Landscapes Assignment which closes tomorrow, June 26th. The view through Mobius Arch frames Mt Whitney in the distance. This is a well-known and often photographed location in the California’s Alabama Hills, but what attracted me to this photo in the gallery was the monochrome effect and the shooting star on the side of the frame. I’ve seen this shot with glowing light on the arch and on the Sierras in the background, but I haven’t seen a photograph where both were rendered like this. Upon further investigation, I saw that Peter Coskun came up with a unique solution for the exposure problem of getting the starry sky and the soft glow on the arch and mountains. Coskun created a double exposure–one at twilight and one just before dawn. You can see how he did it here.
I’ll be selecting a Photo Of The Day from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and the contest galleries. Submit your best shots to be in the running.
